Coming of Age

After delighting crowds with their take on multi-generational rock and roll at last year's Reading + Leeds, Justin Young and co are returning to justify the hype that has surrounded them since debut If You Wanna released back in 2010.

Drawing inevitable comparisions with the Ramones, The Strokes and more recently Arcade Fire, the West London lads have created a slice of down and dirty pop rock that has been claimed by fans and critics alike. A legendary early gig at The Flowerpot in London led to hundreds of fans being turned away and cemented their reputation as an exhilarating live band, tipped to launch a new era of guitar music. With new album The Vaccines Come of Age due early October, now is the time to see this musical zeitgeist.

Come of Age

Come of Age

Foursome delivers its second album in 18 months – but why delay when it’s this great?
