The Vamps then released their first single Can We Dance in October 2013 following the first airing of the song on YouTube, which resulted in over a million views in the first two weeks. The single debuted at No.2 on the Official UK Singles Chart.
Their success continued with the release of the singles Wild Heart and Last Night. Both singles became Top Ten hits on the Official UK Singles Chart. The Vamps released their debut album, Meet The Vamps, in April 2014. It debuted at No.2 on the Official UK Albums Chart.
