Vampire Weekend Drops ‘Live in Florida’ EP: Stream It Now

Vampire Weekend dropped a new live EP today (July 10) titled Live in Florida because the indie rock band misses the Sunshine State as much as fans miss concerts.

Live in Florida features six songs from their two tour stops last year at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre and Miami’s James L. Knight Center because Vampire Weekend wanted to “revisit some of our favorite shows from last year and put together a little something based around two beautiful nights in the Sunshine State,” according to the Instagram announcement yesterday (July 9).

The EP includes “A-Punk” from its eponymous 2008 debut album, “White Sky” from the 2010 album Contra, and “Sunflower,” “2021” and “How Long?” from the most recent LP Father of the Bride, which bowed at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in May 2019. The last edition of the project highlights an introduction from the group’s famed collaborator Nick from Orlando, who’s also featured on “A-Punk.”

“Vampire Weekend has had a long and healthy relationship with the Florida music fan, and last summer’s Miami/St. Augustine run was no different,” drummer Chris Tomson said in a statement obtained by Spin. “These shows were a little sticky in the August humidity but I had so much fun playing and the really great crowd vibes always help (especially, but not limited to, Nick from Orlando’s inspired assistance on A-Punk). These shows stayed with me like the pepper sauce from O’Steen’s or a Cubano Doble from Enriqueta’s.”

Fans can stream, purchase and relive live shows as needed with Vampire Weekend’s latest project exclusively on Amazon Prime Music.
