Vampire Weekend To Spread Holiday Cheer, Tour For Life

We posted a now defunct Vanity Fair video yesterday in which those dirty dogs in Vampire Weekend gave you a piece of their worldview. Though we've already shared some 4,457 Vampy Weeks tour dates with you in the past few weeks, we feel obliged to also inform you that the band will be performing the West Coast holiday show circuit next month in addition to a free show in Sydney next week AND a slew of shows in their native New York around the January 10 release of their deliriously excellent new LP, Contra. People can call them classists or say their music is wussy, but you'd have to be a Class A bonehead to suggest these dudes don't grind. Cover art above, tour dates below.
