Dave & Dan Acoustic Track

Following last night’s band/fan Q&A over on Facebook, we were treated to a special acoustic lockdown treat from the Fenton’s front room. They dusted off the legendary song ‘Red Flag’ for the acoustic treatment, it was a track which was originally planned for single release after Jimmie Jones. Until now, it had been consigned to history and very few people had ever heard it. So, after nearly 40 years’ wait, here’s Dave & Dan’s acoustic version of Red Flag…

Online Q&A and acoustic track

This coming Friday, the 24th of April, between 2000 & 2200 GMT, there will be a special live online Q&A with members of the band and crew on ‘The Vapors Fan Group’ over on Facebook.

On Friday evening, a post will be created on the page which the band and crew will be following and you can ask any Vapors related question which someone will answer it in real time.

After the Q&A, there will also be a video premiere of a special acoustic track performed by Dave & Dan. To join in with the Q&A, make sure that you follow ‘The Vapors Fan Group’ page here and we’ll see you on Friday night. Get your thinking caps on…

Mods Mayday postponed

Due to the ongoing COVID19 pandemic, this year’s Mods Mayday has been postponed until Saturday 3rd October. The event has also been paired down to a single day and, sadly, The Vapors will not now be appearing as they are playing their own headline gig in Glasgow that night. Apologies for any inconvenience.

Amazing early photos

Early fan and former Barbed Wire fanzine writer Alan Fred Pipes has uploaded a brilliant set of photos from 1979 to Flickr. The photos capture the band at various live gigs, from small local shows around Guildford to larger venues whilst supporting The Jam on the Setting Sons tour in the autumn. There are also some shots in the studio taken during the Turning Japanese session as well as ones in a car park with a Morris 1000! They’re a unique set of pictures and we’d like to thank Alan for posting them. Check out the photos here

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
