Vampire Weekend have released a brand new live EP as a reminder for fans of their vibrant on-stage performance.
The record, titled Live in Florida, was recorded during two shows at St. Augustine Amphitheatre and at the James L. Knight Center in Miami, respectively.
The new album is a bouncing reminder of the power and purpose of the band performing live. “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.
“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.”
Live in Florida is only available to stream or purchase on Amazon Prime Music, and is an Amazon Original EP.
