The Vaccines Return to Play Terminal 5 Tomorrow

January 30th, 2013

Just about three years ago, frontman Justin Young, guitarist Freddie Cowan, bassist Árni Hjörvar Árnason and drummer Pete Robertson teamed up in London to form the Vaccines. The quartet quickly became a buzz band—and earned comparisons to the Strokes, the Jesus and Mary Chain, and the Ramones—in the UK, thanks in part to a demo of “If You Wanna” uploaded to YouTube. Sold-out shows soon followed, even before the band (above, playing “If You Wanna” on Later … with Jools Holland) released their debut LP, the acclaimed What Did You Expect from the Vaccines?, in 2011. Not resting on their laurels, the Vaccines put out their second album, the equally well-received The Vaccines Come of Age (stream it below), last summer. And now that they’ve just kicked off another North American tour, you can see the Vaccines tomorrow night at Terminal 5.
