Indie rock band The Vaccines have revealed that they will complete their third album within the next eight or nine months.

This third album will follow up on 2011’s ‘What Did You Expect From The Vaccines?’ and 2012’s ‘Come of Age’. The band also spoke about how this new album won’t consist of “three-chord pop punk”.

The Vaccines first formed in 2010 in the West of London. Their debut album ‘What Did You Expect From The Vaccines?’ was released in 2011 and reached number four in the UK Album Chart. The album also got the title of the best selling album of 2011.


Their second album ‘Come of Age’ reached number one in the UK Album Chart after it was released on the 3rd of September 2012.

While the band themselves have only been around for a short time they have opened for and toured with some pretty big names including The Rolling Stones, Muse, Mumford & Sons, Arctic Monkeys, The Stone Roses, Red Hot Chili Peppers and many more!

Frontman Justin Young spoke with Australian radio station Triple J about the upcoming album.

“I don’t think we’re going to come out with a third record of three-chord pop punk.”

The Vaccines frontman also spoke about their current EP ‘Melody Calling’ and how that was the bridge between ‘Come of Age’ and the new album.


“I think we just sort of felt like we didn’t want to be churning out the same stuff album after album… We tried to take a turn on the second record, but it was perhaps slightly premature.”

“I like surprises – not everyone does – but we felt like the EP was a good way to bridge the gap.”

The ‘Melody Calling’ EP was released earlier in the month and The Vaccines are currently on tour across the United States with the UK’s own Mumford and Sons.
