Vampire Weekend have been slowly but surely reestablishing themselves as everyone's favourite summertime indie band ahead of the release of their new album Father of the Bride. They've shared four new tracks from the record, which is due for release on 3 May, and yesterday, the band released a video for one of those new tracks Sunflower. Jonah Hill, fresh from his directorial debut Mid90s, directed the video which features a smiling-but-superfluous cameo from Jerry Seinfeld. Watch the video in the player below (click here if it's not displaying correctly). 

The band's latest move is to announce a quartet of headline shows across Scotland and England this November – the band will kick off at the Usher Hall in Edinburgh on 7 Nov before gigs in Manchester, Birmingham and London. Tickets for the shows go on sale on Friday 22 March at 10am; get full details of Vampire Weekend's UK tour schedule for November below.

The band play a trio of sold-out shows in London next week, and they're also on the bill for Radio 1's Big Weekend in Middlesborough in May alongside a grab-bag of acts including Stormzy, Miley Cyrus, Future, Sigrid and Sean Paul.

Father of the Bride is released on 3 May via Colombia Records.
