Vampire Weekend Announce Tour, Share Videos for New Songs: Watch

As promised, Vampire Weekend have released the first two singles from their new album, Only God Was Above Us. The new songs, “Capricorn” and “Gen-X Cops,” arrive with collage-like music videos that utilize film and footage from Steven Siegel—the photographer whose Subway Dream 11 doubles as the new Vampire Weekend album cover. Watch the videos below.

Vampire Weekend have also announced the Only God Was Above Us Tour. The trek begins in April with the band’s (sold-out) total solar eclipse concert in Austin, Texas. Support on the tour comes from LA LOM (aka the Los Angeles League of Musicians), the English Beat, Voodoo Glow Skulls, Mike Gordon, Christone “Kingfish” Ingram, Princess (featuring Maya Rudolph and Gretchen Lieberum), Cults, Mark Ronson (doing a DJ set), the Brothers Macklovitch, and a Billy Joel tribute band called Turnstiles. See Vampire Weekend’s tour dates below.
