OUT NOW! Wampire - Bazaar // Announces UK & Euro Tour
Posted 10/07/2014

Happiest of release days to Wampire! Their sophomore album, Bazaar, is out now and can be found at our E-store if you'd lik to pick a copy on CD, LP, cassette, or MP3. You can also support your fav local record store by picking up any of those formats there.

The album is also available through all digital retailers today! Check it out on iTunes / Amazon Music / Spotify/ Rdio and wherever else digital music is sold.

As with their previous full-length Curiosity, Wampire recorded Bazaar with trusted producer Jacob Portrait (of Unknown Mortal Orchestra), though this time around the sessions took place at The Museum, a studio in Brooklyn's Greenpoint neighborhood, and were done directly to tape.

Far from home once again, Tinder and Phipps used the city to their advantage -- writing lyrics on the 40-minute bus ride to and from their temporary residence in Bed-Stuy and rushing to a shop down the street to buy a guitar -- one that looked and felt like it had been buried in dust for decades and had just the right analog sound -- as their allotted studio time was winding down.

Another important change was the addition of touring drummer Thomas Hoganson to the recording and songwriting process. Though Tinder and Phipps had previously sought to minimize distractions in the studio by just working with each other, Hoganson's diverse musical abilities (in addition to drums, he also plays piano and saxophone on Bazaar) made him an ideal collaborator.

Wampire is currently touring with TOPS across North America, and also just announced a UK / Euro tour for the winter. Find tix to shows at our TOUR PAGE, and peruse the full show listing below.
