Season’s greetings

On behalf of The Vapors, their management & crew, we would like to wish the band’s fans around the world best wishes for the festive season and a happy and safe 2021. Despite everything else happening in the world this year, 2020 was also the year that finally delivered the band’s long-awaited third album Together, proving well worth the 39 year wait! Live wise, the year was written off after mid March due to the pandemic, forcing the postponement of both some FTJ gigs and the band’s New Clear Days 40th anniversary tour. Hopefully they can restart gigging in May with FTJ ahead of the NCD tour. See you on the road in the new year, stay safe in the meantime… The Vapors website team x

The Vapors on TV!

The band recently took part in some filming for an upcoming online TV series called ‘That Was Then, This Is Now’. Devised by Radio 1 legend Mike Read and producer Mike Stock, the series features many artists from the United DJs’ Heritage Chart who are still making music today. Alongside The Vapors, the series has appearances from Toyah, Paul Young, Kim Wilde and many others. The series consists of five episodes and will be shown online weekly from 7pm Thursday 5th of November (the older amongst us will recognise this as the regular ‘Top Of The Pops’ slot!). The Vapors appear on episode three on 19th November and will be performing two songs. The programme is pay per view and tickets, and other info, can be found here

Waiting For The Weekend @ 40

On this day in 1980, the band released their fourth single ‘Waiting For The Weekend’, the third and final single from ‘New Clear Days’. The single version was a different mix to the album track and featured the inclusion of a brass section. The lyrics described a relationship hindered by the constraints of the working week and the catchy track ‘Billy’ was the b-side. Despite the accompanying video (with the band as mechanics), the single didn’t make the UK chart. Listen to both songs from the single on Spotify here
