The Vamps are officially back! After announcing their new single, album, fan-fests and arena tour last month, today they treated fans again with the premiere of Wake Up! The single launched at radio globally this morning, and the band also revealed that the video will follow this coming Monday and features an extra special guest star!
The Vamps filmed the Wake Up video in Los Angeles with their good friend, and fellow Brit, Brooklyn Beckham. In the video, Brooklyn leads The Vamps revolution and fans can see the full video when it premieres on YouTube on Monday.
Speaking of the video, The Vamps said: “Making the music video for Wake Up was something we were super excited about! It has been a year since we did our last shoot, and we were eager to get involved in a new one! This video was something we had never done before; we performed on top of a radio tower, 100 feet in the air. It was pretty scary, but absolutely awesome. We were lucky enough to have Brooklyn Beckham in the video, he’s a super nice guy and crazy talented.”
Wake Up, the single, is out now around the world (see buy links below), and the album follows on the 27th November.
Despite no one having heard a second, within minutes of the single pre-order going live last month, the EP was at #1 on the UK iTunes Album Chart. Wake Up, the album, will include 18 songs and a very special free concert DVD from The Vamps recent sold out, headline shows at the O2 Arena. The DVD will only be available for the first 4 weeks, while stocks last, so fans should snap up a copy quickly.
In addition to the forthcoming, highly anticipated new music, The Vamps are also treating their fans to a number of intimate, fan rally shows in the Autumn, followed by arena dates in Asia, UK and South America, with more dates to be announced soon in Europe and the USA. The fan-fests will kick off in Madrid on the 14th October, and culminate with a show in Berlin on the 9th November.
This will be the first moment for fans to hear some of the new tracks, and The Vamps will also host a Q&A where they can discuss the making of Wake Up, and answer any burning questions the fans have. Tickets for all of these dates will be available from www.thevamps.net on Saturday 10th October at 10am.
