Ahead of the release of The Vamps’ debut album Meet the Vamps – which goes on sale on April 14 – we’ve been chatting to hot drummer and singer Tristan Evans, and naturellment, we quizzed him about the group’s relationship with US pop star Taylor Swift, and about being compared to bands such as The Wanted and One Direction.
However, while we had him in our vice-like grip, we couldn’t resist asking him to choose which of the One Direction lads – who are of course Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson – he’d Snog, Marry or Avoid…
Having given it not inconsiderable thought, Tristan replied, “I’d avoid Zayn because he’s engaged to Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards, which is a beautiful thing, so I’d avoid that so as not to cause any drama…”
How sweet is he? Awwwwwww.
“I’d snog Liam because he played a show with James [McVey my Vamps band mate] and I’d marry Niall, because he’s funny and he’s blonde.
“And he’s just a great dude, so yeah, I’d so marry Niall.”
So, rejection there for Harry and Louis then, but hey, maybe they could hook up with some of Tristan’s band mates, in a Snog, Marry, Avoid kind of a way at any rate.
The Vamps have been pretty major news this year, having toured with The Wanted AND Taylor Swift. It’s all going on.
We wanted to know what their hopes are for the rest of 2014 and for the band, it’s all about the album.
“Well we mostly want to get the album released and hope it gets as far up the charts as we hope it will…,” Tristan confessed.
“We want as many eyes and ears on it as possible; we just really want people to hear it.”
“And we’re really looking forward to our tour in September, that’s going to be great.
“Other than that, we want to release more singles and just have a great time to be honest!”
Some of those great times will no doubt be had when The Vamps go on tour in the USA with Austin Mahone and Fifth Harmony. They’ll be on the road from Friday July 25, kicking off in San Antonio, and will tour until Thursday August 21, when they’ll play for the last time in Philadelphia.
The band will post more details of dates and venues – and how to get hold of tickets if you happen to be Stateside – soon, so check out their website for more details.
Back at home, on 23rd September The Vamps’ UK tour kicks off in Sheffield City Hall and the young hunks will also visit Glasgow, Newcastle, Manchester and Liverpool over their month long travels.
We have LOADS more gossip from our chat with Tristan, so check back tomorrow for some more exclusive insider news. For now, here’s a look at The Vamps hits on YouTube…
