The Vaccines

The Vaccines Biography

The Vaccines

When The Vaccines first emerged in 2010, their guitar-led, uniquely British pop songs were a welcome change to the surge of electronica and raucous pop that was dominating the airwaves.

Fronted by Justin Young, who had served time as singer-songwriter Jay Jay Pistolet, the band featured Freddie Cowan on guitar, Arni Arnason on bass and Pete Robertson on drums.

Their debut, What Did You Expect From The Vaccines?, was a mainstream success and the band went on to support almost every big act on the planet, from The Rolling Stones to Muse to The Stone Roses at their Heaton Park shows. 

Norgaard, Post Break-Up Sex, and If You Wanna were good old-fashioned rock songs that adopted a quirky lyrical point of view. Their second album, The Vaccines Come Of Age went straight to Number One in the UK charts, making them one of the most successful bands of recent years.
