In other news, congratulations are due to Vampire Weekend and XL Recordings on the band's eponymous debut album being certified Platinum by the RIAA for U.S. sales in excess of 1,000,000. 

Vampire Weekend  was released January 29th, 2008 by XL, and debuted at #17 on the Billboard Top 200 charts. In addition to being newly certified Platinum in the U.S., the album has previously been certified Platinum by the BPI in the UK, and Gold by Music Canada and ARIA in Australia.

The first band to grace the cover of  SPIN  magazine before an album was even released, Koenig, Baio, Tomson and former member Rostam Batmanglij met in 2005 at Columbia University in New York City. “Even without an album, Vampire Weekend has made one of the year’s most impressive debuts,” said  The New York Times  of the band’s earliest recordings.

The accolades continued through the album's release, as Vampire Weekend appeared on 2008 Top 10 lists of  Time, NPR, Rolling Stone, New York  Magazine,  Pitchfork  and countless others, as well as winning the  NME  award for “Best New American Indie/Alternative Band." The band also made its first of three appearances on  Saturday Night Live,  as well as debut performances on  The Late Show with David Letterman  and  Jimmy Kimmel Live!. 

Since their debut, Vampire Weekend have released two additional albums, both of which debuted at #1 and have been certified Gold in the U.S.: 2010’s GRAMMY-nominated  Contra,  and 2013’s  Modern Vampires of the City,  which won that year's GRAMMY for Best Alternative Album.
