What to expect from The Vaccines' new March/ April 2011 dates: 'Post Break-Up Sex' and some riot pop
The future looks bright for The Vaccines, having formed about eight months ago and already made waves on 'Planet Sound', being dubbed the savers of great British guitar music in NME recently and ranking at third place in the BBC Sound of 2011 poll.
The gang of four are fronted by Justin Young (formerly known as singer-songwriter Jay Jay Pistolet), who describes their music as a mixture of [deep breath - Ed] "'50s rock 'n' roll, '60s garage and girl groups, '70s punk, '80s American hardcore, C86 and good pop music". The band released their debut single, the very Ramones-esque 'Wreckin'Bar (Ra Ra Ra)' in November 2010, and only yesterday, released their second single, 'Post Break- Up Sex' which strangely echoes Glasvegas' 'Geraldine'... All good comparisons to draw, let it be said.
And this comes in anticipation of their debut LP, 'What did You Expect from The Vaccines' due out on 21 March 2011.
Before that, the quartet will take part in a one-off London "NME Awards Show" at King's College SU [now sold-out - Ed], then head-off on another NME shindig - the NME Awards Tour alongside Crystal Castles, Magnetic Man and Everything Everything between 3rd and 19th February - tickets for which are now scarce (London, Norwich, Bristol and the first Manchester date - 4th February - are now sold-out).
They then play a couple of dates in March in Inverness and Belfast (which went on sale today, before their biggest headline gig to date at the Electric Ballroom in Camden on 7th April. The, on 30th June, Hyde Park beckons where they will support the mighty Arcade Fire alongside Mumford and Sons and Beirut.
Tickets for their newly-added Belfast date are on sale now, priced at £11.75, with the Electric Ballroom gig going on sale tomorrow morning (Weds 26th Jan) at 9am, costing £12.50. Tickets for their Hyde Park - Arcade Fire support slot go on sale this Friday at 9am, costing £48. [Phew - I think I need a sit down after that! - Ed]
