The Vamps Love Taylor Swift, Shawn Mendes and Turkey

Have you met The Vamps? Because they want to meet you. 

The UK-based pop act is starting to make a name for itself–they've toured with Taylor Swift and Austin Mahone this year, and their debut full-length album, Meet The Vamps, was released in the U.S. on November 4. The quartet stopped by Trending 10 today–you can watch their interview from the show above!

With such a whirlwind year coming to an end, lead guitarist James McVey had a mixed answer when asked about his highlight from the band's young career. "The album coming out has been really important," McVey begins seriously, before adding: "And meeting Taylor Swift was a nice moment for me. I didn't speak for about two hours afterwards."

Shell-shocking celebrity encounters aside, The Vamps are beginning to fit right into the mix of fresh new pop groups. They toured with Shawn Mendes and Fifth Harmony, and developed a quick relationship with Mendes. He appeared on a new version of their single "Oh Cecilia (Breaking My Heart)," an adaptation of Simon & Garfunkel's "Cecilia"–nice throwback, guys! 

Watch the full interview above to get the complete scoop on what's going on with The Vamps, including an explanation of how the Mendes collabo came about from drummer Tristan Evans and some deets on their upcoming performance at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
