    On May 31st, Columbia Records will release The Vaccines debut album What Did You Expect From The Vaccines? On the back of a huge UK buzz, The Vaccines are now setting their sights on the US. Due to popular demand, the band will be back in our fair country this month with a slew of dates at SXSW.

    Last October, The Vaccines played the show that would ultimately dictate the next few months of their career. As 200 eager fans packed inside the London venue Flowerpot, outside 200 more fans were being turned away. Earlier that summer the band had released their first track "If You Wanna" a track that The Independent called "three minutes of vintage, brash, no-messing, rock'n'roll." This track and the power packed, 80-second track "Wreckin Bar (Ra Ra Ra)" in combination with the infamous Flowerpot gig would catapult the band into becoming 2011's most exciting new act according to NME, MTV, BBC Radio 1, Elle, Vogue, Spin Magazine and many more!

    This summer The Vaccines will make their way back to the states for a full U.S. tour. The band was also invited to play with rock luminaries Arcade Fire and Arctic Monkeys this summer. The band will support each act at Hype Park and Don Valley Stadium this summer.

    The Vaccines are Justin Young (vocals/guitar), Arni Arnason (bass), Freddie Cowan (guitar/vocals) and Pete Robertson (drums.)
