The Vamps Debut Album “Meet The Vamps” is Out Now!

The Vamps highly anticipated debut album “Meet The Vamps” is out now in the UK and Europe!  We have heard snippets of all of the songs and we have to say, this album is going to be huge.

When we saw The Vamps in NYC at Gramercy Theatre, they blew us away with their new songs featured on the album.  Watch “Girls On TV” Live from Gramercy Theatre below!

We are still waiting on a US release date for the album, but we’re hoping it will be sometime this summer to go along with The Vamps tour with Austin Mahone!   The album will be out April 25th in Australia and New Zealand, and May 21st in Japan.

To celebrate “Meet the Vamps” release, the band will be having several meet & greets, performances and signings around Europe.  Check here for details on how you can Meet The Vamps!

Check out the brand new lyric video for “Somebody To You” below.

Artist to Watch: The Strypes

You never know where you’ll find you new favorite band: it could be on YouTube, from a commercial you looked up on Shazam, busking in a park, opening for your favorite artist.   In this case, it was reading an ad for BBM in Rolling Stone that led us to The Strypes.

Ross Farrelly, Josh McClorey, Pete O’Hanlon and Evan Walsh make up the quartet, hailing from Cavan, Ireland.  Their debut album, Snapshot, was released last month in the US.  It’s hard to believe they are only 16-18 years old, as they have a sound way beyond their years, drawing influences from The Yardbirds, The Rolling Stones and The Animals.   They also remind us of more contemporary acts like The Vines and Arctic Monkeys.

They just wrapped up a US tour, which included a sold out stop at NYC’s Bowery Ballroom, a performance on The Late Show with David Letterman, and a rave review from Rolling Stone.  We unfortunately missed seeing them this time around, so we’re hoping they’ll be back stateside soon!

The Strypes will be performing all over Europe through the Spring and Summer, check out the dates below!

Austin Mahone to Release Debut Album “The Secret” May 27th, Heading Out on Summer Tour with The Vamps!

It may be Austin Mahone’s 18th birthday today, but he surprised everyone by giving US a present!  Austin called into Elvis Duran to share the news that his debut album will finally be released on May 27th!!   The album, titled “The Secret,”is one of our most anticipated of the year.  We love all of Austin’s singles, and his 90s pop influences, so we can’t wait to hear it!

As if that wasn’t enough, Austin also announced that he will be heading out on a summer tour!  We caught the one-man boy band at Hammerstein Ballroom on the MTV Artist To Watch Tour back in March, and were majorly impressed.  It’s hard to believe that he’s going from small venues to arenas in such a short time!

Even more exciting?  Austin’s bringing The Vamps, one of our favorite new bands, on tour with him!

Tickets go on sale next week!  Members of Austin’s fanclub, Mahomie High, can access an exclusive pre-sale starting on Tuesday, April 8th at 10am.  Join now if you haven’t already!  (We are usually against fan names, but Mahomies is just awesome).  He’ll also be having VIP packages, so stay tuned for details on how you can meet Austin!  Check out our fangirl handbook for advice on how to make the most of your meet & greet.

But wait, there’s more!  All concert goers will get a copy of Austin’s album, “The Secret,” with every ticket order!

Backstreet Boys Announce Summer 2014 North American Tour on GMA

We’re so glad we made the switch from The Today Show to Good Morning America recently – GMA seems to get all of the important fangirl announcements.  Like this morning, when Backstreet Boys revealed they will be heading back out on a North American tour this summer!   We were getting majorly concerned that it was already March and we had no boyband tours to look forward to this year (We even made a list of forgotten bands who could reunite) so we are so excited that Backstreet’s Back in 2014!  This will be their second North American tour since Kevin Richardson rejoined the group last year, just in time for BSB’s 20th Anniversary.   Avril Lavigne will be joining the tour as well, so get ready for a night of early 2000s nostalgia.

Tickets go on sale to the general public Friday, March 21st 2014 at 10am local time.  Be sure to visit BackstreetBoys.com for info about fan club pre-sales, VIP packages, upgrades and after parties!
