Vampire Weekend heads to Bend in August in support of their fourth album, “Father of the Bride.”
“Father of the Bride” closes a six-year gap since 2013’s “Modern Vampires of the City,” a period during which band leader Ezra Koenig was anything but idle. In addition to touring the world and winning a Best Alternative Grammy for “Modern Vampires…,” Koenig released his Netflix anime series “Neo Yokio,” continued to host his “Time Crisis” show on Beats1, and co-wrote and produced Beyonce’s “Hold Up.”
Father of the Bride’s title is something Koenig chose years back, well before recent significant developments in his life. The title has multiple layers of meaning, expressing the band’s signature paradox: creating songs that easily find a home on any playlist but reveal their complexities upon closer listening.
