The Vamps to play The Showbox on Saturday, September 15th
The hardest working young band in Britain are back. Yes, already.
Less than a year since the appearance of Night & Day (Night Edition), their third album and a Number One on the Official Albums Chart, The Vamps are poised to release the quicksmart, irresistible follow-up. Night & Day (Day Edition), out July 13th, is not just the second half of the innovative Night and Day project. It’s the sound of the arena-filling fourpiece digging back into their DNA as a melodically sharp, virally loved, guitar-bass-drums pop-rock band.
No matter that electronic anthem All Night, the cornerstone single from the dancefloor-friendly Night, became their most successful track to date – it’s been streamed over 400 million times. No matter, too, that Night saw the band collaborate with DJs/producers like Matoma, Jack & Coke and Frank E, creating a whole new sonic palette for their songwriting.
True to adventurous form, for their fourth album The Vamps were determined to change things up all over again.
“It’s good as a musician to do that, to experiment,” thinks singer Brad Simpson. “It satisfies other aspects of your song writing. But to be honest, the electronic direction was quite unexpected, even for us – we didn’t start out fully with that intention.”
