Wake Up music video

Music Video

The Vamps release a music video for their single Wake Up. The video features The Vamps performing on the roof of a high rise radio tower and includes a cameo from Beckham.

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

Single Release

Wake Up Single Cover ArtThe Vamps release their single Wake Up. This track is featured on their album with the same title. The song is a collaboration between The Vamps and producer Steve Mac.

Wake Up is the first song off our second album. And, it’s the first song we ever did for the second album. That’s kinda how we got the whole sound of the next album. It’s about being there for a girl, and supporting through hard times. And, then wanting to kinda see the gratification for it, and just wanting to be appreciated. Not in a weird way. Just knowing that you are there for them, sort of thing. It kinda links in well because we haven’t released music for about a year. So, it’s kinda like Wake Up is probably a good statement for us to be back and releasing music.

Single Release

Last_Night_The_VampsThe Vamps release their third single Last Night. The song is featured on their upcoming album Meet The Vamps and was written by Wayne Hector, Tom Barnes, Pete Kelleher, Ben Kohn and Ayak Thiik. Connor Ball:

I think for the single we aren’t as worried, because we’ve done it twice before, but the album—we have no idea—I’m quite scared actually. We don’t know what’s gonna happen, but we’re excited, very excited.

It’s really hard because we never stop writing, so we never feel like we’re done.

The Vamps interview


Seacrest interviews The Vamps during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions them about what Taylor Swift taught them about the entertainment business.

First of all she was really confident when she was speaking to the audience. Second, her stage bond was also amazing, I think we strive to be that together on stage and thirdly, her crew was so friendly and welcoming. So, Taylor taught us a lot.

Wild Heart

Single Release

The_Vamps_Wild_HeartThe Vamps release their second single Wild Heart. The single was a collaboration between all four band members. James McVey:

We really enjoyed making (their previous single) Can We Dance, but with Wild Heart we kind of experimented more with musical genre in the sense that we added a banjo and mandolin. We like to try and push ourselves into directions to try new things really and we’ve gone for more of a folky vibe so we hope people like it. We like to think it’s a feel good song I guess.

Can We Dance

The Vamps release their debut single Can We Dance. The track was a collaboration between writers Karl Michael, Bruno Mars, Philip Lawrence, Timz Aluo and Espionage. Connor Ball:

Well, our first single Can We Dance was co-written with Bruno, but it’s not going to be on the album actually. But yeah he’s another person we’ve done some writing with, which we really enjoyed. But otherwise on the album there are no collaborations really.
