The Vaccines previewed a sizeable chunk of their forthcoming second album ‘The Vaccines Come Of Age‘ during an intimate gig at a London pub venue last night (June 22nd).
Having announced the ticket-less show on Twitter a day earlier as a warm-up for their hectic summer festival schedule, the band performed at The Sebright Arms with support being provided by Frankie & The Heartstrings.
The new track ‘Ghost Town‘ was given its live debut during the show, while three other new tracks due to feature on their second album – ‘Teenage Icon‘, ‘Weirdo‘ and ‘Bad News‘ – were also aired along side the album’s first single ‘No Hope‘.
“We made a conscious decision to play the songs from the album that would make sense within our live set so people can dance around,” frontman Justin Young told NME after the gig. “Last time we were playing venues this size people certainly weren’t reacting like that to songs from the first record, but I feel confident in all the songs we played tonight – there’s no reason why people won’t be singing them in six months time.”Just Published:
