While most artists who have made their way to the top on their own tend to knock talent shows such as The X Factor, The Vaccines have actually defend the concept. Frontman Justin Young claims that he does not have a problem with it, as it is the only way for some people to get noticed.

Young told BBC News, “I actually think the talent shows hark back to the '50s, '60s era of variety stuff. I think they're the old fashioned way. People expect us to turn our noses up at these shows, but I think that for a lot of people it's the only opportunity they're going to get and I think it's as valid as going out playing show after show every night.”
Meanwhile, bandmate Freddie Crown addressed their own rise to stardom, which happened superfast considering The Vaccines only formed in 2009. He added, “We played Alexandra Palace at the weekend and that was the biggest show we've done so far. That was the first moment where I thought 'this is real'. It takes a long time to sink in.”

It was recently rumoured that The Vaccines were planning to head to America to attempt to crack the US market but the band have since denied these reports. The Vaccines are set to head off on a UK Arena Tour in May 2013.
