Vampire Weekend is an indie rock band from New York City signed to XL Recordings. Despite the band members' occasionally preppy style, they are influenced by both African popular music and Western Classical Music. They describe their genre of music as "Upper West Side Soweto", performing such songs as "Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa," which references Congolese soukous music.
The members of the band -- Ezra Koenig, Rostam Batmanglij, Chris Tomson, and Chris Baio -- met while attending Columbia University.
Queens of the Stone Age:
This hard rock band started out jammin' in the California desert before hitting it big, first in the United Kingdom, and then in the United States with their hit, "No One Knows." Queens of the Stone Age tour dates are booked internationally, so don't miss out on the chance to catch them in your area.
Frontman, Josh Homme, started QOTSA in 1996 under the moniker "Gamma Ray." After a lawsuit from a German metal band with the same name, they decided to change their name after their producer, Chris Goss, joked that they were like "Queens of the Stone Age." The name stuck and the band released their self-titled debut in 1998 on Loose Groove records. While it received a silver certification in the United Kingdom and four stars from Rolling Stone, the album failed commercially in the United States. It is slated for a re-release in 2011, hopefully this time around, American fans will listen.
QOTSA returned to the studio and recorded their sophomore set, "Rated R", which was released in 2000. This album proved to be more successful than its predecessor, with the band charting a single on the US Modern Rock survey, "The Lost Art of Keeping a Secret," which was also featured on the HBO series, Entourage. With this mild success, Queens of the Stone Age tour dates were booked as the opening act for the Smashing Pumpkins, The Foo Fighters, and Hole. The Queens of the Stone Age concert schedule also featured a spot at the annual rock festival, Ozzfest, in 2000.
Their breakout success occurred with their third effort, "Songs for the Deaf." While on tour with the Foo Fighters, the band befriended Dave Grohl who joined the recording sessions and played drums on the album. Grohl even toured with them on the US portion of the 2002 Queens of the Stone Age Tour. The album was released in 2002, with the hit singles, "No One Knows," and "Go With the Flow," propelling the album to platinum status and becoming their highest performing album to date. Critics loved the album's schizophrenic sound and were especially praiseworthy of Grohl's legendary contribution on drums. The album's songs, "No One Knows" and "Go With the Flow," were respectfully nominated for Best Hard Rock Performance at the 2003 and 2004 Grammy Awards.
The band toured extensively in support of the album. The Queens of the Stone Age concert schedule included headlining stints at the Coachella Valley Music Festival and an international headlining tour in 2004-2005. The band returned to the studio and released their fourth album, "Lullabies to Paralyze," in 2005. To support the album, the Queens of the Stone Age concert schedule included a performance at Saturday Night Live where they also performed a skit, and the opening spot on the Nine Inch Nails' "With Teeth," tour. The album spawned the hit, "Little Sister," and debuted at #5 on the Billboard 200, their highest charting entry to date.
Following the conclusion of the tour, the future of the band was in limbo following a series of line-up changes, the firing of bass player, Nick Oliveri, and a general slump in the band's cohesiveness. They took a couple of years off but returned in 2007 to release their most recent effort, "Era Vulgaris." which featured the Grammy nominated single, "Sick, Sick, Sick." Since releasing the album, the band has focused solely on touring and other musical side projects. The band is currently in the studio working on their long anticipated sixth album and trying to define the new direction that their sound will gravitate towards. Frontman, Hommes described what they are trying to do as "trancey" and "bluesy." In the meantime, you will just have to catch these guys on the road to hear what they're trying to create in the studio. Queens of the Stone Age tour dates are available, their concert schedule has them touring over forty international dates this 2011.

Cage The Elephant:
Music lovers that haven't heard of Cage the Elephant have probably heard their hit single "Ain't No Rest for the Wicked" on the radio or TV. Those same lovers are probably also missing out on Cage the Elephant's amazing concert dates. This Kentucky band is a group up-and-coming stars who are bringing a much needed kick to mainstream music through their folksy yet rocking beats and frenzied tour dates. Their style is a unique blend of bluegrass, punk, and rock that has been garnering attention from both fans and critics. For those people who have heard and enjoyed "Ain't No Rest for the Wicked", there's good news in the form of tour dates for 2011.
Cage the Elephant was formed by brothers Matthew and Brad Schultz in 2006. Their sound was almost immediately a hit and gained the band a concert date at the 2007 Lollapalooza, immediately following Lady Gaga's breakout performance at the festival. It wasn't until they played at the South By Southwest Festival that Cage the Elephant were signed to UK record label Relentless Records, eventually relocating there. Their debut eponymous album was released in June of 2008 in the UK and almost a year later in the US to positive reviews. Shortly after, the single "Ain't No Rest for the Wicked" began to circulate as a hit single and the band began to play concert dates with a number of UK and US bands, including The Pigeon Detectives and Manchester Orchestra. Cage the Elephant returned to play a tour date at Lollapalooza in 2009 as well as playing the Outside Lands Festival in San Francisco and Bonnaroo in Tennessee.
Cage the Elephant's new album, Thank You Happy Birthday, was released in January of 2011 and has prompted the current 2011 tour dates with superstars The Black Keys. The two bands share a similar bluegrass sound, as well as the energy they both expend on stage. The concert dates will kick off in Cage the Elephant's home away from home of London on March 23, with tour dates in 2011 extending into July. Part of Cage the Elephant's meteoric rise to fame is due to their energetic tour dates, where the band's members visibly play like it's their last night on Earth. While Cage the Elephant won't be opening for The Black Keys on every tour date in 2011, the shows with The Black Keys are selling out fast, so buy tickets soon.
British indie rockers Arctic Monkeys have cultivated a sound that embodies the classic British rock sound that has been hugely popular over the last sixty years. Internet publicity and numerous tour dates definitely helped the band pay their dues, as their first full-length album didn't release until five years after their formation. The momentum necessary to become a mainstream hit has definitely not waned, as evidenced by the anticipation over the release of their new 2011 album, Suck It and See. Fans around the world are also excited about the announcement of 2011 tour dates beginning in May, and tickets for select concert dates are already in danger of selling out.
Arctic Monkeys formed in 2001, all the members being from the High Green suburb of Sheffield. None of the band's members knew how to play any instruments and the assignment of roles in the band is depicted like a game of musical chairs. After releasing a demo CD that spread like wildfire across the internet, Arctic Monkeys released a single, Five Minutes with Arctic Monkeys, in 2005. The band scored a tour date at the Reading and Leeds Festivals, where an unusual amount of people showed up to watch them play.
Arctic Monkeys released two singles -- "I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor" and "When the Sun Goes Down" -- which rocketed to #1 on the UK Singles chart and brought fame to the band's members before a single LP was released. When Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not did release in 2005 it was an instant success, prompting numerous tour dates for fans that had been waiting to see them live. A year later, bassist Andy Nicholson began to feel the pressures of continuous tour dates and decided to leave the band; he was replaced by Nick O'Malley of The Dodgems.
Arctic Monkeys' second album, Favourite Worst Nightmare, was released in 2007 to critical acclaim. As with their previous album, this one shot to #1 on the UK Albums Chart and has since gone double platinum. Arctic Monkeys' third album, Humbug, was released in 2009 and co-produced by one of the band's musical heroes: Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age. The album once again went to the top of the UK charts and was critically praised as a masterful evolution of the band's sound. Having one of the most popular albums in music meant that Arctic Monkeys have some of the most popular tour dates in the world right now.
With Humbug as a sort of cliffhanger in the evolution of Arctic Monkeys, fans can't wait for Suck It and See. The album is set to release on June 6, but not before Arctic Monkeys play concert dates throughout the entire United States. Tour dates in 2011 will begin on May 17 in Washington, D.C., with concert dates set for a handful of major US cities before heading to Sheffield, UK on June 10. Arctic Monkeys will play concert dates at a number of European music festivals before the end of scheduled 2011 tour dates on September 3. Fans in the US should take this opportunity to catch Arctic Monkeys tour dates in 2011, as the group doesn't visit the states for concert dates very often.
