Vampire Weekend is taking you back to the time when live concerts were still a thing.
Ezra Koenig and company have released Live in Florida, a six-track EP recorded during the band’s stops in Miami and St. Augustine last summer while they were touring behind their latest album, 2019’s Father of the Bride.
“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,” says 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…These shows stayed with me like the pepper sauce from O’Steen’s or a Cubano Doble from Enriqueta’s.”
You can stream Live in Florida now exclusively via Amazon Music.
Vampire Weekend had been scheduled to play a number of shows and festivals this year, including Governors Ball, Osheaga and Bonnaroo, all of which have been postponed or canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
