While they’ve only been a band for two years, The Vamps are quickly making their way into mainstream success. Formed in early 2012, their impressive talents got them a record deal with Mercury Records later that year. Having supported the likes of The Wanted, Demi Lovato and currently with Austin Mahone on tour, it’s safe to say that The Vamps are now starting to shine on their own.
Having reached #2 on the charts in the UK with their infectious single, ‘Can We Dance,’ the band also just recently released their North American EP ‘Somebody To You.’ As they hit our wonderful city of Toronto this Wednesday, it would only make sense for our boys James McVey, Brad Simpson, Tristan Evans and Connor Ball to be our Man Crush Monday.
Don’t know much about these English boys? Be prepared to fall in love.
They’re talented musicians
Besides the fact that each member can sing, they can also all play instruments. James and Brad can rock the guitar while Connor can slap the bass and Tristan can play the drums!
This is incredibly impressive, seeing that none of them are even legal to drink in America! (They’re all between the ages of 19 and 20).
Their YouTube covers are amazing
Like many other well known artists, YouTube is a way to show your talents to the world. By posting their version of Conor Maynard’s Vegas Girl on the website back in 2012, who knew that the cover was going to be the start of something beautiful?!
Seeing that I’m also a big McFly fan, their cover of That Girl was PERFECTION. And to make things even better, was the fact that McFly’s Dougie Poynter and Tom Fletcher’s younger sister Carrie even made a cameo in the video!
Also, for those who may have not known, Connor Ball wasn’t always in The Vamps. Back in March 2013, the boys thought it was a cute idea to ask Connor to be their bassist and film it. The reaction still puts tears in my eyes!
Their sense of humour is adorable
Sure they’re on tour, but that doesn’t mean they can’t have fun while working. Last September, they showed off their talents and senses of humour with some toy instruments. Jimmy Fallon and The Roots, eat your heart out!!
And while they were attending a Claire’s signing in the States, Brad still has time to show off his silly side…
Might we add that even though this was part of their music video ‘Can We Dance’, they still made filling a room with colourful balls look like the funnest time ever!
They’re always down for a challenge
Watching the boys do challenges/games is one of the best ways to keep you entertained during a boring day.
Most recently, the boys did a Balloon Challenge for heat & heatworld, in which they were challenged to stick little poles into a balloon without making it explode. Watching their fearful faces at the thought of a balloon popping is absolutely hilarious!
As well, watching them giggle over innuendos is just the cutest.
And also, we can’t help but love boys who know their Disney movies!!
They’re great on social media
