After a three-year hiatus, their fourth bears witness to an explosive return, with brash, bold, rock 'n' roll songs that mix melancholy with euphoria; these are high octane summer tunes perfect for loud & proud driving with the top down.

Revisiting their roots, the record ranges from pure Vaccines rattle and shout through to power-pop. this album is perfectly suited to fans of The Strokes and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

The infectious London-based indie rock outfit formed in the late 2000s around the talents of Justin Young (vocals, guitar), Árni Arnason (bass), Freddie Cowan (guitar), and Pete Robertson (drums). The quartet, which has drawn comparisons to everyone from Surfer Blood and the Drums to the Jesus and Mary Chain, released its debut single, 'Post Break-Up Sex,' on Columbia in 2011 (you remember that one, right?) their debut album, 'What Did You Expect from the Vaccines?', appeared shortly afterwards, as did their perennial single 'Wrecking Bar.'

Released in 2012, 'Come of Age', the band's sophomore outing, was produced by Ethan Johns and recorded at ICP Studios in Brussels, Belgium and the Distillery in Bath, England. For their third studio album, the Vaccines opted for a change of pace: they traveled to America to record 2015's 'English Graffiti' with producer Dave Fridmann (who previously worked with the Flaming Lips and Mercury Rev), with experimental hip-hop producer Cole M. Greif-Neill also taking part in the sessions. 'English Graffiti' appeared in 2015. Now The Vaccines are back.
