From posting videos in 2012 on YouTube that brought the band together to multiple arena tours and number one albums, It’s been a whirlwind decade for The Vamps, who are celebrating their remarkable decade with ’10 Years Of The Vamps’ – a campaign which will see them perform a ‘Greatest Hits’ tour in the UK and Ireland in November and December and release a special anniversary fanzine on October 14.
“It’s crazy to think what started in our bedrooms and Tristan’s parent’s garage led to us headlining arenas all around the world”, the band said in a statement. “The past 10 years have been an incredible journey but what makes it even more special is that it has felt like a shared one between us and our fans. The Vamps have taken us across all five continents and given us the privilege of playing in front of millions of people. These five albums are chapters in our lives and moments we are hugely proud of. This last year has been one of reflection for us and as four best friends who’ve had the chance to live out our dreams we now can’t wait to celebrate these memories with you all.”
’10 Years Of The Vamps’ is a special edition fanzine produced as a collaboration between the band and the fans that will be released on 14 October. After an overwhelming response from the fans to a band shout out asking for their own personal Vamps memories, this collection is something personal between fan and band. As well as these photos, it includes limited edition merchandise such as art cards and a CD containing previously unreleased recordings all housed in a zine book that documents the bands journey over the last ten years. There are unreleased photographs, photographs of memorabilia from the band’s personal archives, an exclusive interview with the band, plus QR linked bonus content exclusive to the zine.
