Last month, The Vaccines‘ frontman Justin Young told NME that the band were eager “not to make the same record again” as they began writing material for their second album.

“Guitar bands in particular seem to get in the habit of making the same record over and over again, and I think we’re really keen to avoid that,” he said. “It’s the natural thing to do, isn’t it? ‘What did people find attractive in us first time round? Oh, better not lose that then’.”
