Indie rock band, The Vaccines, are heading to Doncaster for a special gig later this year.

The Vaccines, who formed in West London in 2010, saw their debut album, What Did You Expect from the Vaccines? reach number 4 in the UK Album Chart .

They quickly drew comparisons to the Ramones, The Strokes and The Jesus And Mary Chain. The band, however, talked of influences ranging from “’50s rock ‘n’ roll to 80s American hardcore and good pop music”.

They toured extensively and opened up for the likes of The Walkmen, The Stone Roses, Arctic Monkeys and Arcade Fire and are heading to The Dome, Doncaster on November 23.

Steve Parker, head of commercial activity at The Dome, said: “We are really pleased to be announcing this gig and we know that it will attract scores of fans to the Dome.

“The Vaccines are extremely popular and have had a very busy summer. This will be a fantastic event for us to host.”

The video for their second single from their new ablum, “Teenage Icon”, will be released on September 3. The Vaccines’ second album will be called Come of Age and is also due for release on 3 September 2012 in the UK.

“This gig is for over 14s only and identification will be needed to confirm that guests are old enough to attend. We strongly advise people under the age of 14 not to attempt to buy tickets or try to gain entry to the gig.
