Vampire Weekend is an American indie rock band from New York City that formed in 2006 and signed to XL Recordings. The Band has four members: Ezra Koenig, Rostam Batmanglij, Chris Tomson, and Chris Baio. The band released its first album Vampire Weekend in 2008, which produced the singles "Mansard Roof", "A-Punk", "Oxford Comma", and "Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa". The band's most recent album, Contra, was released in 2010.
Interesting fact: The name of the girl on the Contra album artwork is Kirsten Kennis. She used to be a high-fashion model in the early 1980s. Kennis sued Vampire Weekend's label XL Recording, as well as the photographer (Tod Brody), who took the photo for 2 million dollars. The case is still pending after Tod Brody disappeared.
