Do any of the members of the band speak foreign languages? I would assume that Rostam speaks Persian and Baio probably knows some Russian, but anything else?

Rostam - Persian, French

Baio - some Russian, a little bit of Spanish

Ezra - some French

CT - ancient language of babeliness (as far as we know, he only speaks English)

It’s been two years since Vampire Weekend debuted New Song #2 (which would go on to be called “Unbelievers”) at their show at the House of Blues in Cleveland, Ohio.

And it’s been a year since the music video for Unbelievers was filmed in Portugal.

Vampire Weekend Tri-Blend Floral Shield Shirt is now available at the official merch store

It appears during ‘Step’ and it’s a version of a wallpaper print called ‘Acanthus’, designed by William Morris (of the English Arts and Crafts Movement) and published in 1875 by Morris & Co.

There’s also another wallpaper print shown during ‘Step’, called ‘Oak Tree’, made by John Henry Dearle in the late 19th century, also for Morris & Co.
