Who are Vampire Weekend?
Vampire Weekend first stepped into the spotlight in 2006, capturing audiences’ attention with their blend of indie-rock and Afro-pop infused melodies. The group released their self-titled debut album in 2008, producing massive hits like “Oxford Comma” and “A-Punk,” and receiving widespread critical acclaim for its world music influences. Contra followed in 2010, debuting at the number one spot on the Billboard 200 and bringing along continued commercial success thanks to singles like “Holiday” and “Cousins.” In 2013, Vampire Weekend released their third studio album Modern Vampires of the City, garnering their first Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album in 2014. The album would mark their final release with founding member Rostam Batmanglij, and their last album in nearly six years until Father of the Bride arrived in the spring of 2019.
