[News] Vampire Weekend Detail New Album, 'Modern Vampires of the City'

Using methods wholly different from the usual press release format, Vampire Weekend took to the New York Times classified section to detail their upcoming third album. The band tweeted early yesterday morning, simply saying, "NYT classifieds...", and for those dedicated enough would have found this simply entry in the "Notices & Lost and Found" section: "Modern Vampires of the City, May 7, 2013". It has been confirmed that the previously unnamed LP will be titled Modern Vampires of the City, with a firm release date of May 7th. Check out the classified ad below.
