It’s been over two long years since Vampire Weekend released their latest album, Contra, and since then, we haven’t really heard new material from them. But as of yesterday, we can be officially psyched: the New York band visited Jimmy Kimmel last night (in full-on Halloween make-up) and performed a brand new track called “Unbelievers.” It’s classic VW. Check it out below.
Rostam Batamanglij, from Vampire Weekend, took to his Tumblr to release “Wood”, his first single as a solo artist. The song has some heavy Eastern influences, and it is definitely something Vampire Weekend fans can enjoy. This isn’t the first time Rostam has ventured out solo; he previously teamed up with Ra Ra Riot’s Wes Miles to form the side project, Discovery. Listen below.
