Back in December, The Vaccines confirmed that they have finished mixing their fifth album, the follow-up to 2018’s ‘Combat Sports’. Last month, they shared an update on it, calling it the best record they’ve ever made.

“I really truly believe it’s the best record we’ve ever made,” frontman Justin Young told Rock Neto radio station in a recent interview. “I think for a long time we’ve maybe threatened to make a record that’s good but we haven’t quite managed it.







“It’s heavier in places, but it’s poppier in others, it’s a lot more kind of, I think well rounded like sonically and musically and lyrically. I don’t know I think it’s such a great record.”

Earlier this month, The Vaccines released a covers EP called ‘Cosy Karaoke, Vol.1’.
