The Vamps continue their domination of Australia & celebrate Australia Day in STYLE

We might just be a TINY bit jealous that The Vamps aren’t in the UK right now, but it’s all okay because not only do their Australian fans get to see them, but they are documenting their every move in a series of videos. We can follow them around, it’s great! MP! HQ has become a mini cinema for the day and we intend to watch through boys on their trip. The latest video (of course) didn’t disappoint as we get to see the boys celebrating Australia Day in true Vamps style.

As always, we are very eagle eyed here at MP! and we have noted a few points about the video above…

  • Tris and Connor have a fight over Haribos (don’t blame them)
  • There is a little bit of an episode involving a 10 foot python. Just watch and see.
  • Connor does an excellent impression of a python.
  • Tris got engaged with a fan.
  • James’s fashion attempts are…questionable.
  • There is a LOT of slow motion head swinging.

Whilst we wait for the next video we might as well watch all their old videos, because, why not?


What do Stereo Kicks get up to before they head on stage?

We had a little chinwag with the Stereo Kicks lads before their headline show at the O2 Academy Islington and had one burning question in particular… How do they get pumped for the show?!

They gave us a little demonstration of what they get up to.

How many ginger beers was that lads? @stereokicks

Welll, we can’t say we were expecting that, but we love it! We could listen to it all day to be honest. If you haven’t already, go have a look right here at what the boys had to say for themselves when we had a little pre-show, dressing room chit-chat.

The best 1D songs written by Liam and Louis – #TEAMLILO

You know how hard it is for us to pick our favourite 1D member- it’s basically impossible! But we can easily show a lot of love for Liam and Louis AKA the dream team of songwriting.

We’ve always loved every song the lads have released- from ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ right up to ‘No Control’, but the songs written by Payno and Tommo are so good that it can be hard to function when we listen to them. Here are our top songs by #TEAMLILO.

1. Change Your TicketChange Your Ticket

Just how much have the boys matured here? They’ve gone from wanting to stay up all night and breaking tables to wanting their lover to sneakily stay in the hotel with them for that extra bit longer. We wonder why… probably to break more tables, actually.

2. Better Than WordsBetter Than Words

Besides the fact that this song is cleverly made up of other song titles because there’s no words to describe their love for someone, this song gave us the beautiful Niall crotch move on the Where We Are Tour and destroyed our ovaries good and proper. Thank you, boys. We actually mean that. Continue reading The best 1D songs written by Liam and Louis – #TEAMLILO
