The Vaccines played their biggest headline show to date last night (May 2), headlining the O2 Arena in London.

Justin Young and co, supported by Temples, Toy and The Walkmen, played one unreleased song at the show, a new track named 'Melody Calling' that featured Smiths-esque chords and lyrics. Chatting to NME before showtime, Young said that he wasn’t phased by the size of the venue.

"With anything in life, the more you achieve the more you want to achieve," he said. "I guess your ambitions grow with your success. Having said that, we play different sized rooms all over the world… I’m happy we’re here but it wasn’t ever a goal. And it’s not a goal to come back next year and do two or three nights at the venue. It’s not something I think about. We find ourselves in these situations, I get excited by it and I enjoy it, but it certainly wasn’t an ambition."

Get the next issue of NME, out May 8, for an in-depth report from the show, a new interview with the band and exclusive new pictures.
