April 26, 2022 BY Jason Currell
Australian band Vacations are excited to announce their viral single “Young” has been certified Gold in the US, Canada, and Poland. The single has stayed on Spotify’s Weekly Top 200 Song Chart for 10 weeks in a row and counting and they have racked up over 500 million+ streams globally. The band is fresh off their sold-out debut 32-date U.S. tour which culminated with over 14,000 + tickets sold, multiple shows added, and venue upgrades.
A DIY affair from the get-go, the band Vacations formed in 2016 primarily as a songwriting vehicle for Campbell Burns along with band members Jake Johnson, Nate Delizzotti, and Joseph Van Lier. The group released their 2020 record, Forever In Bloom, as 2016’s “Young” went viral for the first of several times on TikTok. The song has now amassed over 275 million streams and continues to break its own streaming records each week. To celebrate their arrival home to Newcastle, Vacations announced their first headlining Australian tour in over three years. Dates can be found at www.vacationsband.com.
