The Vaccines are one of Britain’s biggest and most adored bands of a generation. The band started its career with a bang in 2011 with the year’s bestselling debut album, What Did You Expect from the Vaccines?, the following year saw the release of the equally successful Come of Age, which charted at #1 in the UK, and in 2015 English Graffiti charted at #2. Combined, the band have sold over 1 million records worldwide.
This week the band released its brand new single, I Can’t Quit, which is taken out from The Vaccines forthcoming new album, Combat Sports.
The Vaccines return to their roots with this album, ranging from pure Vaccines rock and roll through to power-pop. It is a combination that has worked for the band in the past, as demonstrated by 15 consecutive A-listed singles at Radio 1, performing on Later…with Jools Holland on four separate occasions and headlining a career affirming show at London’s 02 Arena, all alongside pulling some of the biggest crowds across the summer festival circuits over the last few years.
