The Vaccines share blistering Combat Sports single "I Can't Quit"

04 January 2018, 10:26 | Written by Laurence Day

The Vaccines have shared "I Can't Quit", the hook-led first taste of upcoming record Combat Sports.

The fiery welcome to Combat Sports debuted as Annie Mac's Hottest Record last night on BBC Radio 1, with vintage oohs and defiantly melodic rock riffery helping make it instantly addictive. It makes us even more excited for the full record

A Daniel Brereton-directed trailer revealed late last year included a snippet of "Nightclub", another track from the band's upcoming follow up to 2015's English Graffiti. Combat Sports is The Vaccines' first album without longtime drummer Pete Robertson, who departed last year and recently returned with solo project Sunan.

The Vaccines' spring tour begins at Bristol's O2 Academy on 3 April and finishes at the Alexandra Palace in London on 14 April. For more info head to the band's website.

A few months ago we spoke to the group's bassist Arní for Talk The Line, our podcast exploring celebrity obsessions. Check out what he had to say about a strange period in Iceland's history known as 'Ástandið' - The Situation.
