vampweekskope2 Almost a year after their self-titled debut, Vampire Weekend will be releasing their much anticipated sophomore release, titled Contra.

If you take a visit to band’s website today, you will be greeted with a large splash announcing the new album. However, if you were hoping for it come out sometime this year, sorry to say that it will be released VERY early next year, on January 12, 2010. No real explanation for the album’s name, wether if it’s related to the video game series or not, but whatever it means in this context, Vamp Weekend thinks “Ur a Contra”.
