Listen to The Vaccines' New Single, "No Hope"


The first single off English-bred The Vaccines’ forthcoming sophomore album, The Vaccines Come of Age, was released yesterday. The track, titled “No Hope,” made its debut on BBC Radio 1 yesterday evening and is one of the band’s longest songs to date, clocking in at just over four minutes.

“I think we’ve always from day one wanted to write pop songs, write the kind of songs we listen to,” frontman Justin Young told NME earlier this year. “Pop seems to be a dirty word, but we don’t think it should be.”

The album is a close follow-up to their debut, What Did You Expect From the Vaccines?, and according to Young will be “more intimate and close” than their first.

The new album, set to be released Sept. 3 through Columbia, was produced by Ethan Johns, who has worked with artists such as Ryan Adams, Ray Lamontagne, and Crosby, Stills and Nash. “No Hope” is now available for pre-order through the Vaccines’ SoundCloud, out July 9.
