Although only being established for a couple of years The Vaccines have had a meteoric rise in the music world, writes Bishan Davies.
Their first album ‘What Do You Expect From The Vaccines’ was released in 2011 and charted at four.
This year they were voted Best Band in the NME Awards. Now they are back with a full UK tour stopping off at the O2 Academy, Birmingham on November 29.
The four piece band that has spent the summer opening for the likes of Arctic Monkeys and Stone Roses and playing festivals across the world from Seoul to Reading will be showcasing material from their most recent album “Come Of Age” which was released on September 3 and has already received enthusiastic reviews.
The Vaccines seemed to have found the secret in keeping original fans loyal to the band and attract new fans , as they have keep their raw, punchy pop punk sound, simple guitar riffs and anthem like choruses.
From songs such as Wetsuit to Teenage Icon it seems The Vaccines have lost non of their raw, vigorous energy.
Their first single to come from the album was “No Hope” which was dubbed, at the time of release, by Zane Lowe as the “hottest record in the world” and reached its peak position of 37 in the UK singles chart. This tour is for fans that have been there from the start, and also for the people that still yet haven’t discovered the sheer power and passion behind The Vaccines.
The UK tour kicks off in Plymouth, stopping off in Birmingham on November 29. Tickets are available online or from the Box Office at 02 Academy in Birmingham.
