Vampire Weekend – “Cousins”
Vampire Weekend - Cousins

Everyone’s favorite faux African college prep band (and by everyone, I also mean me) have just announced a string of new tour dates in support of their new record Contra which hits the store shelves on January 12, 2010 via XL Recordings. The local album release shows will take place at the cozy Bowery Ballroom (January 18), the bearable Webster Hall (January 19), and the much larger and much further away United Palace Theater (January 17). Tickets for all the New York shows go on sale November 20 at noon EST.

The second single off of the new album entitled “Cousins” is available for digital download now at iTunes and the 7″ will be in stores on December 15.

More Vampire Weekend tour dates after the jump.
