The Vaccines have announced a huge concert at London's iconic Alexandra Palace next year

The Vaccines are set to perform at London's iconic Alexandra Palace.

The 'If You Wanna' hitmakers - who previously played at the entertainment venue -

are currently wrapping up writing their follow-up to 2015's 'English Graffiti' and have announced a huge gig at the north London facility on April 14 next year.

The announcement comes just days after the band said they were still putting the final touches on their album but admitted it's all about "sex and love".

Asked what has been inspiring the lyrics, frontman Justin Hayward-Young: "Sex and love, and love lost. I really I became very self-aware a couple of years ago.

"I was insecure about the fact that all I sung about was sex and love. I realised its all I care about. So I've kind of come to terms with that."

The band - also comprised of Freddie Cowan and Anri Arnason - have been working hard every day since their drummer Pete Robertson quit the group in June last year.

He said: "We're really far along, that's what we're doing all day everyday at the moment. I mean we're not recording it yet, but we're writing a lot - and I mean we have a lot. There are a few songs we're really excited about."

Being in studio has brought Justin and his band mates Freddie Cowan and Anri Arnatson closer together as they felt with their last record they'd stopped being a band.

He added: "We're in the studio every day playing together, so it feels a lot more like a band again, which maybe 'English Graffiti' stopped slightly. I guess it replenishes some of that spirit and that energy of the first record."
