What Do You Expect From The Vaccines?, the debut LP from UK buzz band The Vaccines dropped in the US today (May 31) via Sony/Columbia. If you’re a fan of The Ramones then I expect you will either, a) love this record because it sounds like one of your favorite bands, or b) hate this record because it sounds like a cheap imitation of The Ramones. “Post Breakup Sex” (the song) is pretty good, and I’ve got “Blow It Up” stuck on repeat, but despite its bright spots, I’m pretty sure WDYEFTV won’t make my year end top 10. If you’re interested in hearing/judging for yourself, you can stream the new album from The Vaccines at Spinner.com for the rest of the week.

The Vaccines have a pretty heavy summer tour schedule ahead of them, but they’ll mostly be playing dates in Europe and the UK. The band will return to NY this summer to play the Escape To New York in the Southhampton, NY on Aug 6. Check out all The Vaccines upcoming tour dates and more pictures from their opening set for Arctic Monkeys at the Rumsey Playfield after the jump.
