Vampire Weekend are gearing up to release a new album in May after a little more than a two year hiatus. The new album is called Modern Vampires of the City and will be released on May 7 via XL Recordings. It will be the band's longest album yet with 12 songs and you can listen to "Step" and "Diane Young Below" off the new record below.
The band recently performed at SXSW in Austin, Tx, and have several scheduled shows, but have none scheduled in the Philadelphia area just yet. However, whenever they do announce a show in Philly, we'll let you know.
