Award-winning indie rock band Vampire Weekend will bring their ‘Only God Was Above Us’ Tour to KettleHouse Amphitheater in 2024, performing on Saturday, June 22nd and Sunday, June 23rd for a special early afternoon matinee show.

Vampire Weekend released their self titled debut album in 2008. It included the hit singles “A-Punk” and “Oxford Coma” and has since been certified platinum. Their 2010 sophomore effort, Contra, hit #1 on the Billboard 200 and has been certified Gold. It also received a Grammy nomination for “Best Alternative Music Album” and it landed #6 on Rolling Stone‘s list of the “30 Best Albums of 2010.”

Again, they were met with widespread critical acclaim when they released 2013’s Modern Vampires of the City. The album reached #1 on the Billboard 200, was certified gold, and won a Grammy for Best Alternative Music Album. Their 2019 release, Father of the Bride was the third consecutive album to debut at #1 on the Billboard 200 and garnered another Grammy for Best Alternative Music Album. Now, they’re preparing to release their next album and tour namesake, Only God Was Above Us, set for release on April 5, 2024, through Columbia Records.

About Vampire Weekend

Vampire Weekend is a two-time Grammy-winning alternative rock band currently composed of frontman Ezra Koenig, bassist Chris Baio and drummer Chris Tomson. Emerging from the mid-aughts indie rock scene in New York City out of Columbia University, Vampire Weekend released their self-titled debut to immediate critical and commercial success in 2008, with the album debuting at No. 17 on the Billboard 200 and its breakout single “A-Punk” earning an RIAA platinum certification. The band’s 2010 follow-up Contra confirmed their ascent after debuting atop the Billboard 200, while the single “Cousins” became their first song to hit the Hot Rock & Alternative Songs chart. The band’s 2013’s effort Modern Vampires of the City similarly topped the Billboard 200 and garnered the band’s first Grammy Award. 2019’s Father of the Bride became their third album to debut at No. 1, and the album’s high watermark came from lead single “Harmony Hall,” which reached a career-best No. 5 on the Hot Rock & Alternative Songs chart. The album netted the band its second Grammy, and Vampire Weekend’s 2019 North American tour saw the band perform some of their biggest shows to date, including Madison Square Garden in New York.
