Big Thief performed an unreleased track on Colbert back in March. Now, the beloved quartet have announced the song's official release.

"Vampire Empire," which the band have been playing live for the past several months, will see its recorded release on July 19.

UPDATE (7/19, 9:30 a.m. ET): Big Thief have released the hard-hitting roots rocker "Vampire Empire." Take a listen below.

Always saving the lack of brevity for their albums, the band simply stated the news on Twitter, mincing no words.
This marks the band's first new music since 2022's immaculate Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe in You — one of the year's best albums. Big Thief are currently on tour, with a stop in Vancouver scheduled for next month.
