Formed in 2010 in West London the Vaccines first album ‘What Did You Expect from the Vaccines?’ was the best selling debut album of 2011.

Since then the band have released their second album ‘Come of Age’ in 2012 which debuted at No 1 in the UK album chart and ‘English Graffiti’ in 2015, and have toured as special guests to The Rolling Stones, Arcade Fire, Arctic Monkeys, The Stone Roses, Muse and Imagine Dragons.

To date they have sold over one million records.

The Vaccines returned to their roots in 2018 with their 4th studio album ‘Combat Sports’ featuring the single ‘I Can’t Quit’ which was named Radio One’s ‘Hottest Record in the World’.

With influences from Dylan, The Ramones, Tom Petty and the Jesus and Mary Chain, The Vaccines songwriting is getting to a whole new level with Combat Sports, which many regard as their best album to date.

Says main man Justin Young “We lost sight of who we were and why we were there.

"When you’re as insecure and self-aware as me, there’s a constant process of second-guessing everything you do. I’ve brought the Vaccines into my heart again now.”

"Huge thanks to Friars member Paul Hutton of Crosstown Concerts for inviting us to co-promote this date. It marks an exciting return to how Friars used to be….operating on the cutting edge of contemporary live music.

"This one’s going to be special."
