Vampire Weekend

Vampire Weekend have announced a European and UK tour with a Dublin show.

The band play 3Arena Dublin on November 29th this year.

The New York band will release their new album Only God Was Above Us Out on April 5th, via Columbia Records.

There have been four singles from it so far – ‘Capricorn’ and ‘Gen-X Cops’, on ‘Classical’ and today they released ‘Mary Boone’, which feature sample of the drums from “Back to Life (However Do You Want Me)” by Soul II Soul.

Vampire Weekend Presale Tickets

The Dublin gig features support from Ye Vagabonds.

A fan pre-sale goes on sale from 10am (GMT) on Wednesday 3rd April with a general sale from 10am on Friday 5th April. Fans pre-ordering the album via Vampire Weekend’s website will receive early access to UK & IRE Tour tickets.

It’s Vampire Weekend’s first full-length offering from since 2019’s Father of the Bride. Only God Was Above Us was primarily produced by Koenig and longtime collaborator Ariel Rechtshaid, mixed by Dave Fridmann and mastered by Emily Lazar.

The beginnings of Only God Was Above Us stretch back to 2019-2020, when Koenig wrote the bulk of the lyrics. The title is lifted directly from the album artwork, comprised of photos taken from a subway graveyard in New Jersey in 1988 by Steven Siegel. In the album’s cover, a man in a toppled subway car reads the May 1, 1988 edition of the New York Daily News — the cover story detailing the horrific explosion that tore the roof off Aloha Airlines flight 243. The headline quotes a survivor: “ONLY GOD WAS ABOVE US.”

Only God Was Above Us will be available across digital platforms as well as on vinyl and CD. Pre-orders can be placed at
