Days ahead of their forthcoming Modern Vampires of the City, Vampire Weekend stopped by BBC Radio 1 to promote the new project. But they didn't come empty-handed. The band performed six songs off the long-awaited new record, some of which they have previously performed. The set included: “Everlasting Arms,” "Obvious Bicycle," "Ya Hey," “Step," “Unbelievers” and “Diane Young."
