Recorded on their ‘Father of The Bride’ tour last year, Vampire Weekend have released a brand new live EP from the band’s two Florida performances at The St. Augustine Amphitheatre and at the James L. Knight Center in Miami.
“Vampire Weekend has had a long and healthy relationship with the Florida music fan, and last summer’s Miami/St. Augustine run was no different,” explains drummer Chris Tomson. “These shows were a little sticky in the August humidity but I had so much fun playing and the really great crowd vibes always help (especially, but not limited to, Nick from Orlando’s inspired assistance on A-Punk). These shows stayed with me like the pepper sauce from O’Steen’s or a Cubano Doble from Enriqueta’s.”
The EP is available now exclusively via Amazon Music, and you can see the full track list below. And if you fancy something to read while listening, revisit our June 2019 cover interview with Ezra too!

Ezra and pals manage to make it feel like the same intimate sing-a-long, albeit this time with 10,000 of your mates.
With ‘Father of the Bride’, Vampire Weekend have returned from a six-year break refreshed, and more creatively dextrous than ever. As Ezra Koenig explains, it was a much-needed expansion.
