With One Direction Taking A Long Break, Which Boy Band Will Replace Them?
The Vamps – “Somebody To You” broke em, but they are still at the selling out 3000 seaters level. Formed in 2012 and signed to Mercury, they look it , act it and sound it, and given the right push now for the next year, given the right songs, this Brit Band hit me as serious contenders for the next big thing.

Did this break Stateside? it sounds like the Lumineers meets 1D in the best way imaginable, a ridiculously catchy hook laden chorus built for singing along to; stomp your feet and join in. It must have broken here.. but nope, it stiffed – A-
US Top 10 Albums 8-23-14
what the hell are the Vamps doing here? Did I miss that meeting? I am telling you, it is a golden age for Boy Bands. The lead song on the EP, with Demi Lovato, is a real winner. The Vamps are to the Wanted what 5SOS is to 1D only they are a little better than the Wanted, and 5sos are not as good as 1D. So who will be th last band standing???

Guest stars join in on this lovely and loving tribute to the late pianist. ALBUM OF THE WEEK – A-
UK Top 10 Singles 4-19-14
This is a good chart, nice mix of stuff and best of all is the battle to be the next One Direction. I thought it was a shoo in for 5 Seconds Of Summer, but maybe The Vamps will beat em to it. Certainly “Last Night” is the best boy band song since “Kiss You”.
UK Top 10 Singles 10-12-13
The Vamps are boy band youtube sensation and this song is going down very well with the tweens but less traction with older demos is my bet. Chase & Status are ready to break in the States, this is a terrific r&b single that should do well if it ever gets here.
