The Vaccines have kept themselves pretty quiet since the release of 2015 third LP ‘English Graffiti’, but now the chart toppers have re-emerged with a big ‘ol comeback show announcement and a teaser clip hinting at all kinds of new treats.
Here’s what we know for sure: the band will be returning to Alexandra Palace (oh, just that little place…) for a massive show on April 14th. They’re also now swelled to a five piece, with keyboard player Tim Lanham and drummer Yoann Intonti joining the fold following the departure of original drummer Pete Robertson last year.
Currently, the band have only posted an album pre-order link which means, y’know, there’s a record coming soon but they’re not telling you any more info yet. However, there are a few possible hints in the teaser clip that it wouldn’t take a detective to read into: a woman stitching “Combat Sports” onto a varsity jacket (a Vaccines staple) and a really rather exciting snippet of music that hints that the band could be going heavier than ever on Album Four.
