Justin Hayward-Young has hinted that his Vaccines' band members may start their own side projects.

The London indie rockers are releasing an new EP on 12 August and hope to have a new album out next year.

But Hayward-Young says before then we may hear some solo offerings from the band.

"I think people want to do different things, I think people have music in them that maybe they can't get out in this band," he said.

"So I feel like there might be some of that going on before we come together and write the third record."

The band released their second album Come of Age in September 2012 and have been writing their third since then.

"I don't see any reason why it can't come out at the end of next year, I feel like it'd be ready by then," said Hayward-Young.

The frontman admits they feel an urgency to put out new music despite the success they have had with the previous two.

"The conveyor belt is moving quicker than ever and you don't want to get off it, I think that's what a lot of people worry about," he said.

"You're always looking forward and wanting to write as much as possible.

"We will stop touring after the summer and really concentrate on the record. We made the last two on the road, I don't think we really want to do that again."

They have already had a packed summer of festivals, opening for The Rolling Stones at Hyde Park in London and playing Glastonbury.

As well as their own slot at Worthy Farm, they were on stage for headliners Mumford and Sons' final song on the Sunday night of the festival.

"Even just to see what it feels like for two minutes closing Glastonbury, see what it must have felt like for them, was an amazing opportunity," he said.

"I don't think you really dare to dream about stuff like that. I think it would be delusional to almost allow yourself to dream of something like that.

"But I do think the more you achieve the more you want to achieve."
