English Graffiti is the third studio album by English indie rock band The Vaccines. It was produced by Dave Fridmann, with co-production from Cole M. Greif-Neill at Fridmann's New York studio.[1] The album was released on 25 May 2015 through Columbia Records.[2] The album marks the band's first release in two years, following the Melody Calling EP, and their first full studio album release in three, following Come of Age in 2012. Young stated that Fridmann was chosen due to both his track record in making "consistently fantastic records", and because the band wished to replicated the sound of Sleater-Kinney's The Woods,[3] which was also produced by Fridmann.
