45 Vampire Weekend Taping Set List

Ending months of fevered anticipation punctuated by three brilliant double- A-side singles and a slew of over-the-top positive early reviews, Vampire Weekend’s long-awaited fourth album Father of the Bride was released earlier this year, landing the #1 spot on the U.S. charts in its debut. Now, Vampire Weekend returns to Austin City Limits for the indie rock titans’ second
ACL taping. The album was released to rapturous reviews:GQ says “One of the most important bands of the 21st century … With Father of the Bride,their fourth album, the group has expanded itself and the conception of what a band can be”; Stereogum hails Father of the Bride, “Quite possibly their magnum opus”; USA Today raves “Vampire Weekend returns as the best indie band of their generation.”

The third Vampire Weekend album in a row to reach #1 on the Billboard 200, Father of the
Bride’s first week tally of 138,000 is both the year’s biggest sales week for a rock act and the highest single week sales of the Grammy-winning band’s career. In conjunction with the album’s release Vampire Weekend made their first television appearance in five years and kicked off their Father of the Bride North American Tour with sold-out dates throughout 2019.
