The Vamps have chosen to partner with Help Refugees/Choose Love and 10% of the profits from VIP ticket sales will go to the organisation.

In July The Vamps returned to the music scene with the single Married In Vegas, as they moved away from the boyband territory where they started to becoming a fully-fledged pop band.

Having been on the treadmill of album, tour, album-recorded-on-tour, another tour, they fell back into the old routine and wrote half an album quickly 18 months ago.

Some proper time off was needed however, so they indulged in that rare thing of space away from the band.

Then, last summer, unhappy with the results of those early sessions, they booked some AirBnbs and just hung out and started jamming.“We ended scrapping all of the first batch of songs and starting again,” James McVey said.

This time gave the band the space to meticulously plan exactly what they wanted the album to be and what they wanted to say.

The title Cherry Blossom is a reflection of the theme of rebirth that runs throughout the album, say the band.
