GRAMMY award-winning, indie rock group Vampire Weekend will be on stage at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre on Sunday, August 25, 2019. Their performance at the Amphitheatre is part of their massive North American tour in support of their brand new album, “Father of the Bride”, to be released this Spring.
Recently, the songs “Harmony Hall” and “2021″ from their upcoming fourth album, were released to an ecstatic critical reaction including accolades from Billboard Magazine, who wrote that the album “sprawls out with lush symphonies, communal vibes aplenty.” Along with Pitchfork stating the album was “buoyant, filled with the kind of sunlit energy created when throwing open the shutters.”
Vampire Weekend is the first band to grace the cover of SPIN magazine before an album was even released. “Even without an album, Vampire Weekend has made one of the year’s most impressive debuts,” said The New York Times of the band’s earliest recordings.
The band’s s eponymous debut album has been certified Platinum by the RIAA for U.S. sales in excess of 1,000,000. “Vampire Weekend” was released January 29, 2008 by XL Recordings and debuted at #17 on the Billboard Top 200 charts. In addition to being newly certified Platinum in the U.S., the album has previously been certified Platinum by the BPI in the UK, and Gold by Music Canada and ARIA in Australia. They’ve released two additional albums, both of which debuted at #1 and have been certified Gold in the U.S.: 2010’s GRAMMY-nominated “Contra”, and 2013’s “Modern Vampires of the City”, which won that year’s GRAMMY for Best Alternative Album.
