They’ve sold out London’s iconic O2 Arena five times, collaborated with pop idols Demi Lovato and Shawn Mendes, launched their own record label and now The Vamps are bringing their Middle Of The Night World Tour to Australia and New Zealand! Frontier Touring, Nova and MTV are thrilled to confirm Britain’s favourite pop-rock quartet will be returning to Australian shores this September and October in celebration of their third studio album Night & Day (out 14 July through EMI Music)
The Vamps are Brad Simpson (lead vocals and guitar), James McVey (lead guitar and vocals), Connor Ball (bass guitar and vocals) and Tristan Evans (drums and vocal).
Bursting onto the scene in 2013, their first three singles ‘Can We Dance’, ‘Wild Heart’ and ‘Last Night’ from multi-platinum debut Meet The Vamps premiered at numbers Two, Three and Two in the UK Singles Chart and gained The Vamps a nomination for World’s Best Album at the 2014 World Music Awards and win MTV Brand New UK the same year.
Their shortly followed sophomore LP Wake Up (2015) featured more of the groups’ exuberant synth and guitar-based pop with an enticingly matured slick sheen. The Vamps embarked on their first World Tour and charmed audiences across the globe.
“Maybe it’s their mischievous, prankster antics, maybe it’s because their genuine sweethearts, or maybe it’s because their music is catchy, light-hearted and addictive.” – Music Insight
“With amazing live shows such as this and more material on the way, they could make it as one of the greatest (boy) bands on the circuit right now.” – Get West London
“They certainly know how to put on a show to capture the attention of all ages and tastes. The passion and energy with which they play, coupled with their charm, is infectious.” – Gigging In
The Vamps highly anticipated forthcoming album Night & Day (EMI) will be released in two parts. The Night Edition will hit stores first on July 14th and features tracks ‘Middle of the Night’ as well as ARIA certified Gold and biggest single to date ‘All Night’ (available for pre-order now). The Day Edition will follow towards the end of the year. Both albums will feature 10 new songs each plus a live DVD / download of The Vamps at their recent London 02 Arena show.
British trio New Hope Club, who were one of the first artist signed to The Vamps label Steady Records will be supporting throughout Australia. Their debut EP Welcome To The Club (out now) features the intensely catchy breakthrough single ‘Perfume’. The EP builds from breezy pop to elements of electronic and R&B, highlighting the bands knack for crafting sing-along melodies with richly textured guitars.
Renowned for their high-energy and enthusiastic performances, fans are encouraged to act quickly in securing their tickets for a fun night with The Vamps. Tickets go on sale Thursday 15 June – don’t miss out!
