After announcing a May 6th release date for their upcoming third LP, Vampire Weekend took the Metro Theatre stage in Sydney, Australia with some new ideas to get off their chests. Fan site Team Vampire Weekend shares the latest snippet of what to expect this May with a track entitled “Arms”. The song follows in the band’s previously established signature sound with syncopated percussion and shining strings surrounding Ezra Koenig’s croon.
