Meanwhile, Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig recently admitted that American politics “mostly just stresses me out”.
The New York band were noted early supporters of current US President Barack Obama and publicly stated their intention to back him when he campaigned for election in 2008. However, speaking earlier this year, Koenig said: “George Bush was President when our first album came out. Isn’t that just crazy to think? I find American politics mostly just stresses me out. But this record – more than any of the others – hopefully reflects our feelings about the country and the city that we live in.”
Vampire Weekend recently played at BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend alongside Biffy Clyro, The Vaccines and Calvin Harris. The annual bash took place this year in Derry, Northern Ireland on the weekend of May 24-26.
