Zildjian are delighted to welcome Pete Robertson from the UK band, The Vaccines, to the Worldwide Family of Artists.
The Vaccines, a London based Indie-band formed in 2010, kicked off 2011 as "hotly-tipped ones to watch," they were nominated for an MTV Award for "Best New Band of 2011."
Their debut album, What Did You Expect From The Vaccines? was released in March 2011 and reached #4 in the UK Album Charts. This year will see the band playing over 40 Festivals internationally, including: Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds, Fuji Rock, Lollapolooza, T In The Park, Splendour In the Grass, and Austin City Limits. The band are about to head off to the USA for support dates with Matt Helders and Arctic Monkeys.
Pete says “In my experience, Zildjian are the best company to provide not only the cymbals of the best quality, but also the most variety of sounds to ensure I find the right cymbal for the job.”
