The British indie-rock juggernauts released this single Wednesday, the first full cut from the band’s forthcoming fourth studio album, Combat Sports, out on March. 30th. With their last album, 2015’s English Graffiti, the band improved on their sound with a more colorful, expansive record, but Combat Sports is said to be a return to the band’s rock ‘n’ roll roots. “I Can’t Quit” is an anthemic indie-rock track led by Justin Hayward-Young’s rousing lead vocals and peppy guitar riffs, sprinkled with backing vocal “ooh ooh”’s.

A booster shot from Justin Hayward-Young and cohorts has been a while coming, as befits a band on their third album and feeling the need to shake things up a little. They began their journey as scuffed underdogs, blamming out dirty romances like Post Break-Up Sex and Blow It Up with the early support of Zane Lowe (who named their early demo If You Wanna the Hottest Record In The World).

That sound grew steadily more muscular and strong with the arrival of the albums What Did You Expect From The Vaccines? and Come of Age, and they soon started gathering a huge following, climbing the running order of the In New Music We Trust stages of 2011 and 2012’s Big Weekends and graduating from the Other Stage at Glastonbury 2011 to the Pyramid Stage in 2013. And now, with the eventual delivery of that widescreen third album English Graffiti, they’re a highly polished pop machine. Better inoculate than never.
