The Vaccines have unveiled a video for their track ’20/20′.

The album, their third, was produced by the band themselves, Dave Fridmann and Cole MGN, who has also produced records for Ariel Pink and Beck.

Speaking to NME, the band’s frontman Justin Young said the band would be releasing new music “sooner rather than later”.

The singer continued: “I think that we really needed that break after two or five years, well, three or four years of constant touring, and two records and an EP. I certainly don’t feel like I need that break any time soon again.”

Bandmate Freddie Cowan agreed with Young and suggested that the band might revert back to the music industry’s old method of releasing multiple records in a year.

“I think there’s this feeling these days that there’s such a long gap between each record, that each creative period gets one record, whereas I think it used to be one or two records a year, back in the ’60s. Each creative period would get two or three records, and I feel like we’ve actually got more to come from this chapter,” Cowan said.

Cowan added: “I don’t like this idea of, ‘Let’s make a record and three years later we’ll come back with something else’. I find those gaps too long!”
