Last month, the band confirmed that they’ve finished mixing their forthcoming fifth album, the follow-up to 2018’s ‘Combat Sports’.
Posting on Twitter, they wrote “mixed” alongside a picture that reveals the record will feature 13 songs and runs for 47 minutes.
While details remain scant on when it will arrive, the band claimed previously online that their next record will be their “best x10000”.
“The new Vaccines album is heavier than anything we’ve ever done and it’s quite brutal in places,” he told NME. “I’m sure that’s a consequence of having made a pretty record.”
So far, the song has only been made available on the ‘Songs For The National Health Service’ compilation that was released last year.
