Vampire Weekend’s latest studio album ‘Contra’ is now available in stores all over the U.S. The Indie rockers will showcase the new material in their upcoming 2010 World Tour. The string of winter shows is set to start up tonight at the Henry Fonda Theater in Los Angeles, CA. The group plans to arrive at the Orpheum Theatre in Boston, MA on Thursday, April 1st.
Vampire Weekend members Ezra Koenig, Rostam Batmanglij, Chris Tomson and Chris Baio first became popular through their 2008 self-titled debut album, featuring the singles “A-Punk” and Mansard “Roof.””When we’re doing it, it really does feel incredibly natural,” said Tomson in regards to their recording process. “We’re just big music fans. We grew up in the age of the internet where we didn’t just listen to Led Zeppelin and Queen. Fela Kuti was available. Bollywood sounds were available to us. From early on we said we wanted to have an indie rock band, but we wanted to open our ears.” Listen to their new album below! Check here at Ace for the best Vampire Weekend ticket deals!
