On Tuesday night, Vampire Weekend stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to perform two tracks ahead of the release of their long-awaited new studio album, Father of the Bride.
The rock band teamed up with HAIM—comprised of sisters Este Haim, Danielle Haim, and Alana Haim—for a performance of “This Life”, off of their recently released LP. Danielle Haim, who appears on multiple tracks on Father of the Bride, stayed on stage to perform “Jerusalem, New York, Berlin” with Vampire Weekend as a web-exclusive for The Tonight Show.
Vampire Weekend was in New York City over the weekend celebrating their Father of the Bride release. To celebrate, the popular rock band took up an entire day at the recently-reopened Webster Hall, where they treated their hometown fans to three sets performed throughout the day on Sunday featuring sit-ins from the Haim sisters.
