The Vaccines reveal ‘punk EP’ plan at Noisey London launch show

Justin Young says he wants new band material out soon

The Vaccines frontman Justin Young has chatted to NME about how he wants the band to release “touring EPs” in between full album releases.

The singer said he wants to make the move to freshen their limited setlist up, having only their 12-song debut album ‘What Did You expect From The Vaccines?’ plus a few b-sides to pick from so far.

“I think when you’re a musician you’re always looking for new things to do,” he said. “I want us to do some EPs in-between records and do some touring EPs and stuff. We’ve started working on some stuff and I’d really like to be more prolific as a band. People can be easily pigeonholed, especially when you only have one album of work.”

The frontman added that he’d like to gear up their current brand of indie rock into something more punky for the new material. “I’ve got a couple of punk rock songs,” he said. “I’d really like to put out a punk EP. I love early ’80s DC hardcore.”

Young was speaking at the launch event of new video site Noisey at London‘s Old Blue Last venue. The site showcases bands and music scenes from various different countries – see Noisey.com for details.
