Watch The Vaccines Play New Songs In Radio X's Session Studio
1 July 2018, 09:00
The band unveil tracks from their brand new album Combat Sports... and unleash a classic tune in the comfort of the Radio X session studio.
The Vaccines returned in 2018, brasher and bolder than ever with a brand new album Combat Sports. The long-awaited follow-up to their 2015 album, English Graffiti, the new LP was given a healthy kick start with the Radio X favourite I Can’t Quit.
You can see the band perform the song live and raw in the Radio X session studio.
Frontman Justin Hayward-Young told Radio X's John Kennedy: “We put it down and didn’t do anything with it for a long time. It ended up being one of the last songs that we considered for the record. Once we knew what the album was gonna sound like, it kind of re-framed the song for us and helped us see the good in it.
“Because it’s so straightforward, we were uncomfortable with it for a while. It was always there, but it wasn’t at the forefront of our minds.”
Guitarist Freddie Cowan added: I actually actively disliked it, for a long time…”
The Vaccines also performed a version of the new track Nightclub, which is taken from Combat Sports.
And, if that’s not whetted your appetite for the new Vaccines LP, how about a classic track to get you in the mood for their UK tour, which kicks off in April?
