Album title AND tour dates! Turns out the new album is not going to be called Martha’s Vineyard on the Cape as previously thought because this morning, Vampire Weekend told fans they should look to the classified section of this morning’s New York Times. There is an entry in the “Lost and Found” column advertising, “Modern Vampires of the City, May 7, 2013.” Check out the tracklist and tour dates below (SXSW! CAN’T WAIT *Bart Scott Voice*) and make special note of those shows with Tanlines and Of Monsters and Men – so jealous of your cities.

Modern Vampires of the City is out May 7th via XL Recordings.
