New Music Friday
Here are our highlights from today's release schedule.
The Vamps, comprising Brad Simpson, James McVey, Connor Ball and Tristan Evans, will be touring the UK in April and May 2018 in support of their Night & Day double album release. The band to date have released the Night edition, with the Day edition to follow in the near future.
The four-piece will launch their tour in Sheffield on Saturday 14 April, running through to the Manchester Arena on the 5 May 2018. The Vamps will play a show at London’s The O2 as part of the run.
They have also revealed that they will be joined by young pop sensation Jacob Sartorius, and previous support act and label mates New Hope Club on all dates.
We chatted to The Vamps back at Virgin V Festival to find out more about playing live shows, and the forthcoming release of Night & Day: Day Edition. Watch our interview below:
Support act Jacob Sartorius rose to fame through social media, following some high profile lip sync videos. He released his first EP The Last Text in January, and his follow-up Left Me Hangin’ in October, both preparing for his debut album.
New Hope Club released their debut EP Welcome to the Club earlier this year, and have joined The Vamps on both their 2016 and 2017 tours.
The trio visited the Ticketmaster UK offices earlier this year to tell us more. Watch our chat with New Hope Club below:
