Fan Focus – Par Engstrom

For many fans of the band, their first online discovery about The Vapors was the legendary website ‘Secret Noise’ run by a long-term fan called Par Engstrom from Sweden. It featured interviews, a detailed worldwide discography, lyrics, photos and a guestbook which was often frequented by actual band members! In those pre-Facebook days, it was amazing to actually interact with any of those guys, or other fans around the world, even if it was only in the virtual world. So, thanks to Par for his foresight setting up his website. Let’s hear about his history with the band…

Together download single

Ahead of the release of the band’s third album Together, the title track is now available as a download only single here. Like the download single Crazy before it, the track Together is another Vapors anthem, featuring all the hallmarks of the band’s sound that we all love…

Also, as with Crazy, for all the collectors out there, available below is a free downloadable picture sleeve for the Together single which you can print out at home. So, if you burn your download of the track onto a CD, you can enclose it in the picture sleeve giving you a physical copy of the single.


Album release delayed

In light of the current global situation we all find ourselves in, we’ve unfortunately had to delay the album release date until mid May.
We’re really sorry but we want the album to be available via as many sources as possible. At the moment, because of delays in the supply chain due to lockdown and self isolation, we find ourselves with little choice but to postpone temporarily.
We are obviously sad about this and share your frustration but please bear with us and know that we will keep new music coming your way as soon as possible.
To soften the blow a little, we will share a second download single with you tomorrow that we hope you enjoy…
Stay safe
The Vapors


FTJ rescheduled gigs

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, it should come as no surprise that more of the remaining From The Jam Setting Sons 40th Anniversary tour gigs have been postponed until the summer. Sadly, with The Vapors’ commitments on the Lost 80s Live tour in the USA, they are not able to appear as special guests on some of the new dates. Details of the shows that The Vapors will be appearing at will be shown in the gig listing on the left hand column. Apologies if you are attending one of the shows that the band can no longer play…


FTJ gig update

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak, next week’s Loughborough show with From The Jam has been postponed until Wednesday 23rd September. The Vapors will be special guests At the rescheduled date.


FTJ Scottish shows postponed

We have just heard this from From The Jam about this weekend’s Scottish dates:

It is with much regret the decision has been made to postpone the shows in Scotland planned for this week. Other gigs may follow suit.
With the current health situation we have been advised to reschedule them for later in the year.

This decision has not been taken lightly as it affects a lot of livelihoods and all of the team hates cancelling as we know the disappointment and inconvenience it causes. We are working on getting new dates and the team will announce these once confirmed.

At this time of global uncertainty we hope you will understand why the decision been taken, everyone’s health and wellbeing had to take priority.

In the meantime, stay safe, healthy, happy and be nice to one another.

Thank you for your support and understanding.

Bruce, Russ, Mike and Andy and all the crew & team FTJ xx

We’ll let you know as soon as we hear about the rescheduled dates or any other postponements on the tour.
Updated 19/3- sadly The Vapors are unable to appear at the rescheduled Scottish gigs as they are in the US on Lost 80s Live duties. Apologies for any inconvenience.

Fan Focus – David ‘Docs’ Daniels
