The extensive run kicks off May 17 at Hangout Music Festival in Gulf Shores, Ala., and wraps up at the world-famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Denver, making stops along the way in Toronto, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, Atlanta, Boston, and New York City, at Madison Square Garden. The tour will also send Vampire Weekend to Europe for a few dates during the month of July.
In an odd glimpse of their upcoming album, the band teased their new project with 120 minutes of guitar riffs of one song, "Harmony Hall," which was one of the two new tracks unleashed last week.
Vampire Weekend earned their first career GRAMMY for Best Alternative Album for 2013's Modern Vampires Of The City. Their new album will be their first since Modern Vampires… and their fourth overall studio album. An exact release date is yet to be announced.
Tickets for the upcoming tour are available now via Ticketmaster.
