INDIE rock band The Vaccines have announced two shows in Sussex.

The UK-wide tour will see the five-piece band play in Brighton and Bexhill.

The Vaccines are due to take to the stage at the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill on Sunday, September 26.

The group will then play at Brighton’s Concorde 2 on Sunday, October 3.

The Vaccines, who shot to fam in 2011 following the release of their debut album What Did You Expect from The Vaccines?, are due to perform a run of intimate shows across England.

The tour coincides with the imminent release of their upcoming album Back In Love City on September 10.

The Vaccines have released four studio albums to date and have sold over two million records worldwide.

Recorded at Sonic Ranch in El Paso, Texas, Back in Love City features 13 songs.

The album was finished early in 2020 and mixed by Andrew Maury with additional production from Fryars.

A band spokesman said the record is a “massive musical leap forward for the band”.

“It’s not a lockdown record, but its theme of escapism in modern life resonates more than ever in the pandemic era,” he said.

“While the trademark surf swagger and Western flourish of The Vaccines sound remains, Back in Love City is their heaviest record so far.”

The Vaccines is made up of Justin Young (vocals, guitar), Freddie Cowan (guitar, vocals), Árni Árnason (bass, vocals), Tim Lanham (keyboards) and Yoann Intoni (drums).

The band formed in West London in 2010.
