Vampire Weekend Lands First No. 1 Album
Stephan Brahms

Vampire Weekend, whose last LP "Contra" hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200, have announced their anticipated third LP will drop May 7 via XL Recordings.

So far, that's about all that's been confirmed in regards to the Brooklyn indie rockers' latest offering. "LP3 COMPLETE" reads the intro on the band's official website, which bears the tiny letters "MVOTC" in the bottom left corner.

There's been no title or album art announced yet, though the record will most likely include "Unbelievers," a new track debuted last October on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"

2010's "Contra" spent 41 weeks on the Billboard 200 and sold 124,000 copies during its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
