One of The Vamps Reveals 'I Was a Very Lazy Student'

Talk about constantly being on the go.

The Vamps know a thing or two about being on the road as the guys just wrapped their US tour earlier this month. "We're on our way to the airport to San Francisco," lead singer Bradley Simpson told us over the phone, "We've never been, so it should be fun!"

The British boy band, who often got compared to One Direction when they formed in 2012, said their inspiration as a band varies. "We're all different," Bradley said, "For example Tristan is a big Blink-182 fan and James likes country music like Rascal Flatts."
They might have different muses, but the guys all share a common interest in getting kids psyched for school. The boys have partnered up with Walmart to offer a free concert so kids can have some fun getting back to class. "We wanted to help with what we can - getting them all ready for school," the 20-year-old said. To get in on the fun, fans have to visit, search for their school supply list and share it on social media. One lucky city with the most shares will have a free show by The Vamps at the end of September (the winning city will be announced on September 9).

Maybe something like a free concert at school would have helped Bradley get a little more into it, because "I was really lazy," he laughed, "I was a very lazy student."

We thought it'd be uber cool if The Vamps collaborated with another band, but when we asked about any band dream collabs - Bradley went the solo route instead: "We'd like to do something with Ed Sheeran," he quickly said, "That would be really cool and different." Um, yes please.

While we cross our fingers and be on the lookout for that, we're stoked to see if they'll have any collabs on their new album that's dropping November 27!
