About Vampire Weekend

Vampire Weekend is an indie rock band comprised of lead vocalist and guitarist Ezra Koenig, guitarist/keyboardist Rostam Batmanglij, drummer Chris Tomson, and bassist Chris Baio. Koenig and Tomson first met while they were attending Columbia University. Koenig and Batmanglij played for a brief period of time in a group called The Dirty Projectors, but soon they got the itch to create their own band. Recruiting their schoolmates Chris Tomson and Chris Baio, the band decided to name themselves after a horror movie that Koenig had once wanted to create. Vampire Weekend went on to perform at a battle of the bands contest, and then began playing shows around their university. After graduating from college, they continued working on their music while working full-time jobs.

In 2007, Vampire Weekend distributed a batch of songs that they had recorded, and the files quickly ended up being disseminated via various file sharing services. Soon their music was creating buzz all over the Internet with their dreamy pop sounds. The hype surrounding their music allowed them to play in three tours and their song "Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa" ended up on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 Best Songs of the Year – all before their debut album was even released. While most of the reactions they received were positive, not everyone was pleased. Some criticized the band as being privileged WASPy types, given their prestigious educational background, but in rebuttal the band quickly pointed to their Ukrainian, Persian, Italian, and Hungarian heritages. Keonig explained that the band members had got into Columbia on scholarships, and he himself was still paying off his student loans.

Finally on January 29, 2008, their self-titled debut album was released, reaching number 15 on the UK Albums Chart and number 17 on the Billboard 200. The album produced five singles: "A-Punk," "Oxford Comma," "Mansard Roof," "Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa," and "The Kids Don't Stand a Chance." The album was eventually certified Gold in the United States and Platinum in Britain. Select tracks were also featured on various video games, as well as the movie Step Brothers.

Following in the wake of their successful debut, Vampire Weekend released their second album Contra in 2010, which debuted at number 1 on the Billboard 200. The album was met with almost universal critical acclaim, and was the 12th independently distributed album in history to reach number 1 on the Billboard 200. In its first week, the album sold 124,000 copies, and was eventually certified Gold by the RIAA. Contra went on to earn a Grammy nomination for Best Alternative Music Album. It was also during this time when Vampire Weekend embarked on their European and Canadian tour, also making stops at Coachella, Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits Music Festival, All Points West, and the Groovin' The Moo festival.

Getting back to the studio, Vampire Weekend began working on their third album Modern Vampires of the City in November of 2011. It was later released in May 2013, debuting yet again at number 1 on the Billboard charts, making them the first indie band to debut at number 1 with two consecutive releases. The album also reached number 1 for the Indie, Alternative, Digital, and Top 200 charts. They earned a well-deserved Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album.


Vampire Weekend's Breakthrough Album

Vampire Weekend's self-titled debut album catapulted them to the top of the charts, resulting in record-breaking success for an indie band. It was listed as number 51 on Pitchfork's Top 200 Albums of the 2000s and it was also ranked 24 on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 greatest debut albums. The album would pave the way for their future success, ultimately winning a Grammy Award with their third studio album.
