After a three year wait, Vampire Weekend has finally announced their return to the music industry. According to NME, the indie rock band will release their third album on May 6.
The band explained that while they have been in the recording process since 2010, it wasn’t an easy attempt to finish. Frontman Erza Keonig told NME:
“[Then] the depression sets in. You don’t want to have three great songs and then write nine shitty ones. It’s like the bar keeps getting higher and higher and there’s all these moments where you feel like you have no idea what to do…For our third record it’s only getting harder, but that kinda feels like how it should be.”
