The Vamps Release First Album In 2 Years, Listen To 'Cherry Blossom' Here!

The Vamps are finally back with their brand new album Cherry Blossom!

The guys – Connor Ball, Tristan Evans, James McVey and Bradley Simpson – debuted their first album in over two years on Friday (October 16).

The Vamps‘ last release was the Day Edition of their Night & Day album, which came out in July 2018.

“We had a lot of time to soul search, but also as musicians we had time to go and listen to a variety of different albums and just enjoy music,” James said of the album. “We ended scrapping all of the first batch of songs and starting again.”

“When you’re on tour it’s very reactive and you’re in the moment, so you’re not necessarily really deep-diving into your relationships as a band,” Brad said. “We got to a point where we needed to stop so that we knew what we wanted to do next. Every crossroads that we’d come to –the end of a tour or the end of an album cycle –it was like ‘what are we going to do next?’”

“Fans want more context to music now, they want more subtext to it,” Bradley continued. “You’re doing them a disservice not to evolve. To not be authentic. The idea is to bring them on a journey with us, as they grow up too. We’re writing about stuff we haven’t necessarily touched on before.”

“We’d be lying if we said we didn’t want it to go out into the world and be received positively,” he added about their hopes for the album. “But ultimately, we love it so much, and that feeling of self-fulfillment is so exciting. These are songs that really touch on parts of our lives.”

The Vamps are giving fans another taste of their upcoming album Cherry Blossom!

The guys – Tristan Evans, Connor Ball, James McVey and Bradley Simpson – dropped the new track “Chemicals,” their second release from the LP.

“The love on Married In Vegas so far has been amazing, we wanted to share a bit more of Cherry Blossom with you. Chemicals from Cherry Blossom available from midnight 🌸,” they wrote on Instagram earlier in the week.

“‘Chemicals’ is a really important track for us, it’s essentially the DNA of the album and so a real indicator of what the Cherry Blossom sound is,” Bradley said in a statement. “The response to ‘Married in Vegas‘ has been incredible so far, we can’t wait to share more of this chapter of the band with you all ahead of the album’s release in October.”

Would it be any of his The Vamps band mates Brad Simpson, Tristan Evans or Connor Ball? Spoiler – it’s ALL of them!

“Over the moon to reveal the least surprising news ever: today, I asked Brad, Con and Tris to be my best men,” James shared with fans on Instagram.

He added, “In a world of frequent bulls***, these three guys are who I trust and value the most. I’m luck that they have my back and I’ll always have theirs. Honoured to share the most important day of my life with them.”

Earlier in the year, James avoided answering a question about which of the guys would be his best man, saying that they’d be ushers.
