Vampire Weekend Debut New Songs at SXSW

Subscribe to on

Vampire Weekend performed a short set of songs at the Radio Day Stage inside the Austin Convention Center at yesterday’s South by Southwest music fest. Their show focused on some new songs but included a few old faves as well.

The New York City band’s third album, ‘Modern Vampires of the City,’ will be coming out on May 7. They played a handful of songs from the record during their show, which was recorded for a radio program.

The SXSW showcase marks the first stop on the band’s upcoming tour, which begins in earnest right around the time the album comes out. But Vampire Weekend have a few warm-up gigs in California, including sets at the Coachella festival.

The above video features one of the new songs. It’s called ‘Unbelievers,’ and it features a springy rhythm that recalls the band’s familiar sound. But it also sounds like a bit of a change-up from what we’ve come to expect from them. At the very least, it serves as a cool preview of the new tunes.
