From a cover feature with NME to entering the UK charts at #4 with What Do You Expect From The Vaccines?, The Vaccines are positioning themselves to be one of the most watched bands this year.

The band, consisting of Justin Young (vocals), Anri Hjorvar (bass), Freddie Cowan (guitar, younger brother of Tom from The Horrors) and Pete Robertson (drums), has drawn caparisons to greats such as The Ramones and The Smiths.

The Star Tribune has described the band's 2011 SXSW performances to be "disciplined, energetic and toweringly melodic…". Furthermore, praise came from the Chicago Tribune which stated, "The Vaccines, delivered the kind of set that should be required by law at music festivals with 2,000 bands clamoring for attention." It's becoming clear The Vaccines are ready to make their mark in the music scene.

In addition, while Stateside, The Vaccines will be making their American network television debut on the Late Show with David Letterman on Tuesday, June 7th.

One Response to The Vaccines release What Do You Expect From The Vaccines? + US tour

    something i like about this album is that it sounds like you are right there in the garage with them during a band practice or jam session. however they recorded it (presumably everything mic'd and played live without much multi-tracking)... it really stitched their music together well. Only 2 songs heard and I really can't wait for the release in just a couple weeks!
