Having made their debut in 2010 with the 84 second long indie anthem 'Wrecking Bar', The Vaccines have revealed they have no plans to start writing longer, more epic songs.
The band are set to release their second album The Vaccines Come Of Age on 3 September 2012, and fans can expect another collection of punchy, to-the-point guitar anthems, with frontman Justin Young revealing his own short attention span is to thank for the band's snappy approach to music.
"It's pretty unlikely," says Young in an interview with Gigwise. "I feel like i'm a child of the iPod generation. I've always had a really short attention span. I pick up and put down books really quickly, if i'm not in the cinema I find it very hard to get through films. I really write songs that I want to listen to, which I suppose is the point.
"Our new record in particular is a collection of stand-alone songs as opposed to an album. I have such a short attention span, even though I put love and care into what we do, I have a short, sharp, snappy approach to everything which comes out in the music."
He also reveals he is no fan of sprawling albums featuring additional remixes, bonus tracks and b-sides, adding that artists should have a little more quality control when it comes to their albums.
"You know that not all of those songs are going to be brilliant, well, you can make an educated guess," he adds, talking about over-long albums.
