The Vaccines 2nd album, The Vaccines Come Of Age, is this week’s number 1 album. Released last Monday, it is one of the biggest selling number 1s of the year so far.
The album follows their platinum selling, Brit nominated and NME award winning debut, What Did You Expect From The Vaccines? which was released in March 2011.
The Vaccines are also set to head out on a U.K. tour in November – many of the dates have already sold-out.
The November tour comes off the back of an exceptionally busy Summer for the band who have played main stages at Field Day, Isle of Wight, T in the Park, supported The Stone Roses in Heaton Park, Manchester, The Red Hot Chilli Peppers in Europe and played shows in Russia, South Korea and Japan over the summer months.
The Vaccines most recently appeared on the main stage at this year’s Reading & Leeds festival weekender, attracting one of the biggest crowds of the weekend.
Tickets for the remaining November dates are available to buy via gigsandtours.com and www.gigsinscotland.com.
