The Vamps today announce that their new single will be the fan’s favourite Oh Cecilia (Breaking My Heart), which will be released through Virgin EMI Records on 12th October.
The single version, which premiered earlier today at radio and is Radio 1’s Track of the Day, features upcoming Canadian superstar Shawn Mendes. The video to the track also launches today, and has exclusively premiered at the Mail Online. Oh Cecilia (Breaking My Heart) is the fifth single to be taken from Meet The Vamps, the #2 album that’s quickly approaching Platinum sales.
The Vamps have recently returned to our shores after a comprehensive tour of the US with Austin Mahone and Shawn Mendes. Taking America by storm, the British four-piece have had thousands of fans follow their every move, and their debut US release, the Somebody To You EP, peaked at #2 in the iTunes Chart. Elsewhere internationally, they have also just gone Platinum in Australia with Somebody To You.
This month, The Vamps head out on their first headline tour of the UK. Kicking off in Sheffield on 23rd September, the tour includes 16 dates across 13 cities and sold out within minutes.
The Vamps will play two dates at London’s Eventim Apollo on the 14th and 15th October. The past Summer, since releasing their debut album Meet The Vamps, they have played a raft of festivals including British Summer Time at Hyde Park, UK Live in Sunderland, Ipswich and Weston-super-Mare, Radio 1’s Big Weekend, Capital FM’s Summertime Ball and Isle of Wight Festival. They have also announced their first arena tour in April 2015, dates to be revealed soon.
