Big Thief debut new song ‘Vampire Empire’ on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

The track follows last year’s album ‘Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe In You’.

Following the release of their 2022 album ‘Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe In You’, Big Thief appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night to treat fans to a live rendition of a new track, ‘Vampire Empire’. In our review of their latest record, we said, “It represents a high water-mark in many a great band’s career: the dangerous double-album. The delicate place where abundant creativity aligns with brazen experimentalism, these are records where any misstep risks the dreaded accusation of self-absorbed indulgence. Far from being a bloated filler-fest however, the ethereal gorgeousness hugging ‘Dragon New…’’s entire breadth and depth indicates a group undoubtedly at the peak of their powers.” Revisit the full review here, and check out the performance of new track ‘Vampire Empire’ below.
