The Vaccines - Pick-Up Full Of Pink Carnations


This product is available on pre order with a limited discounted price.


Torchbearers for British guitar music, The Vaccines - Justin Young (lead vocals, guitars), Árni Árnason (bass, vocals), Timothy Lanham (guitars, keys, vocals) and Yoann Intonti (drums) - are back with their sixth studio album Pick-Up Full of Pink Carnations.


The title comes from a misheard lyric from Don McClean's "American Pie," a song that, for Young, fittingly evokes the death of innocence and the American Dream. After he moved to Los Angeles, Young wrestled with the disillusionment that comes when expectations, dreams, and reality don't quite meet. Though Pick-Up Full of Pink Carnations is an album about reconciling with loss, it's also filled with gratitude for the people and places we once loved. "Pink carnations symbolise gratitude and tell a person they’ll never be forgotten," says Young. "So whether it's the loss of a lover, or a friend, or even just a dream, the record is a reminder that they’ll live on in whatever capacity the mind allows them to. And it's a reminder to keep on dreaming.”


Produced by Andrew Wells (Halsey, Phoebe Bridgers) with Mixing from Dave Fridmann (Tame Impala, The Flaming Lips), Pick-Up Full of Pink Carnations is an immediately anthemic addition to the band's discography. 


Available in limited indies-only translucent pink colour vinyl.
