The Vaccines have announced a three date Irish tour to coincide with the release of their debut album 'What Did You Expect From The Vaccines?'

The London-based band recently featured on the BBC Sound of 2011 shortlist and narrowly lost out on the Brits Critic's Choice award to Jessie J.

After the album is released on March 18th, The Vaccines will play the following dates:

March 25th – The Academy, Dublin
March 26th – Speakeasy, Belfast
March 27th – Roisín Dubh, Galway

The Vaccines were recently forced to cancel a number of shows, including their scheduled appearance at Eurosonic, when lead singer Justin Young needed surgery on his throat. He is currently on doctor's orders to recuperate for a week, but should be right as rain by the time the Irish shows roll around.
