The Vaccines to preview new material at secret London gig this month

Band have been working on new album with producer Dave Fridmann

The Vaccines have announced that they will play new material at an intimate London gig later this month.

The band posted a message on their official Facebook page confirming that they will play a show at an as-yet-unnanounced venue on January 20. “Hello. Long time no speak,” they wrote. “We are playing an intimate show in London this month featuring new songs and old. Hope to see as many of you there as possible, it’s been too long.”

They then posted a link to another website, Myplaydirectcrm.com, promoting the gig and offering fans to chance to enter a draw for tickets. The site’s blurb for the gig also promises that the show will feature “brand new music”. Visit here for more information.

The Vaccines are currently working on their third studio album and previously hinted at several new song titles which might feature on the LP including ‘Dream Lover’, ‘Want You So Bad’ and ‘Denial’.

The group have teamed up with producer Dave Fridmann (Weezer, The Cribs, Tame Impala) on the record. At the end of 2013, frontman Justin Young claimed the band wouldn’t be releasing their third album any time soon, explaining that they had already started writing the follow-up to 2012’s ‘Come Of Age’, but in a “solitary manner”.

The band’s last release, the ‘Melody Calling’ EP, was recorded during their US sessions in March 2013 at Eldorado Studios in Burbank, Los Angeles, with producers John Hill (Rihanna, MIA, Santigold) and Rich Costey (Muse, Franz Ferdinand, Arctic Monkeys).
