The Vaccines Collaborate with Albert Hammond Jr. of The Strokes

Music / August 30, 2011

Emerging from the success of their debut album “What Did You Expect From The Vaccines”, The Vaccines have just been tapped by Albert Hammond Jr. of The Strokes to collaborate.

Upon hearing of Hammond’s interest, the quartet readily accepted and 48 hours later “Tiger Blood” was born.

The British newbies have garnered a lot of hype with their loud tongue-in-cheek style that is reminiscent of the Ramones and the Arctic Monkeys.

Despite their achievements, this collaboration could be that added boost to help solidify their place in the industry.

Frontman Justin Young recently opened up to NME on the collaboration and the bands vision for the future.

“We’re in a place now where we’re trying to think about what we wanna do for the next record. We really like the idea of working with other creative people and obviously, being a massive fan of The Strokes, it wasn’t something we were gonna say no to.”

Not many people would.

A date for the release has not yet been set, but in the meantime, check out The Vaccines performing Katie Perry’s “Last Friday Night” on BBC radio.
