The Vaccines have aired the first track to be taken from their second album, 'The Vaccines Come Of Age', which is set for release on September 3.

The song, entitled 'No Hope', received its premiere on Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show earlier this evening (May 28). Scroll down to listen to the song and read our review. Lowe spoke to the band's frontman Justin Young about the upbeat, melodic song. "We all felt it was a really good bridge between the first record and the second record," said Young in the interview, before going on to explain that the song's vocals were recorded completely live. Lowe then revealed that the band will play Radio 1's Hackney Weekend (June 23-24) next month.

"You can progress without getting too weird," said Young of the direction of the follow-up to their 2011 debut album, 'What Did You Expect From the Vaccines?' Young said that the band were currently in a studio outside of Bath, "just putting the finishing touches" to the album.

Last month, Young told NME that the band's new album is sounding "more intimate" than their debut. He also praised the positive influence of producer Ethan Johns, who has previously worked on albums by the likes of Kings Of Leon, Laura Marling and Tom Jones.

Young said it was a "dream come true" to work with Johns, commenting: "He mixes it live so everything is very organic. He says that when the hairs on his arms stand up he knows it's time to stop." The frontman continued: “The record is a lot more intimate and close than the first record, whether you're a fan of the music or not, it sounds brilliant.”

The Vaccines will perform at this weekend's Field Day festival in London's Victoria Park alongside the likes of Franz Ferdinand, Metronomy and Beirut.
