One of the most enduring English rock bands of the last decade, The Vaccines are back on Australian shores a new album and a new collection of catchy-as-hell festival ready favourites in tow. Combat Sports is the bands fourth record and has signaled a slight change in direction for the London natives. Influenced by the best of 70’s and 80’s rock (think Big Star, T-Rex and Guided By Voices), it nestles sweetly next to other Vaccines albums like 2011’s What Did You Expect From The Vaccines and 2015’s English Graffiti. A band both of their time and forged from a deep love of the masters that came before them, The Vaccines are in permanent red hot form.
