The Vamps

The Vamps feel a constant pressure to release new music.

The British band – which features Brad Simpson, James McVey, Connor Ball and Tristan Evans – released their debut album ‘Meet the Vamps’ in 2014, and James has revealed their fans are always asking them to make new tunes.

He said: ”We’ve done five tours in five years and four albums in five years. We’re the only band that’s done that. The nature of it is that we have to constantly release stuff.

”There is a feeling from people that we need to constantly be releasing content. I know I get annoyed when my favourite bands take two years to release an album.”

However, Tristan thinks that the rise of music streaming services like Spotify has given them the opportunity to experiment with different sounds.

He explained that streaming services have already changed the industry landscape.

Speaking to the Evening Standard newspaper, he shared: ”The cool thing is you can do so many different things and not be hassled for it now.

”The whole modern Spotify-era allows people to try new music out. For artists it’s inspiring to listen (and make) all these different kinds of music.”

Meanwhile, James revealed the band’s latest release, ‘Night & Day (Day Edition)’, has seen them return to their original sound.

And the singer explained that the move was a very deliberate ploy on the part of the group.

He said: ”On the ‘Night Edition’ (released last year) we did a lot of collaborations with DJs and that unintentionally kind of steered the rest of the album.

”With this one, there’s only one or two collaborations. But the rest of it is back to original Vamps. We wanted to go back to that sound.”
