Whether you like it or not, Vampire Weekend is all the hype again. The Brooklyn indie sensation is back with a new album (Contra — due out next week) and they’re about to embark on a soon-to-be-sold-out tour, as well. So, that’s enough of a reason to hit up the late-night circuit, right? Of course.

Just moments ago, Ezra Koenig donned his winter best, rounded up his hipper than thou bandmates, and returned to the Late Show with David Letterman. He frowned, he held his stature, and he snuck in a few devilish smiles, too. While short, the band’s live rendition of new single “Cousins” hit all the right notes and came out generously sweet. The highlight? When Letterman joined the guys and announced the album would be out today, only to be swiftly corrected by a nearby Koenig (who gave a nice hand signal, too). What a goof!

Missed ’em? We got ya covered…
