Vampire Weekend incorporated quite a bit of Grateful Dead into their one-time heavily Paul Simon-indebted act with the release of Father of the Bride, and it seems they took in a bit of the band’s road warrior spirit along with the noodling guitars and pastoral vibes.

The band just shared a string of tour dates–dubbed the Father of the Bride tour–that will carry them all the way into next October. Ezra Koenig and company will finish up their first run of North American tour dates with back-to-back shows at Mexico City’s Metropolitan Theater on October 21 and 22 before heading off for tours of Europe and Australia. Fittingly, given the flower-blooming aesthetics of their most-recent album, the band will return to the US in the spring. They’ll start their second run across North America on May 29 at the Maine Savings Pavilion, working their way down the East Coast to a show at Asheville’s Orange Peel.

Vampire Weekend reappears in August at Bend, Oregon’s Les Schwab Amphitheater before touring Canada and dipping down into the US on their way toward a close-out show at Brimingham’s BJCC Concert Hall on October 7.
