The Vaccines singer Justin Young is trying not to get angry to protect his voice.

The ‘If You Wanna’ vocalist has undergone three operations for haemorrhages on his vocal cords in the last year and is attempting to keep his temper in check to protect his voice.

Justin told NME magazine: “I’m just trying to be more mindful of it, not getting in too many shouting matches and stuff. You can do more damage talking; all it takes is just an abrasive little ‘Oi’ and yeah, game over.”

As a result of their hitmaker’s throat problems, ‘The Vaccines’ were forced to cancel shows in North America, Europe and Japan which Justin says was the “lowlight” of his year.

He added: “Just having to cancel and cancel and cancel. You hear about bands who have been going for 10 years, who pride themselves on the fact that they’ve never cancelled a show – so the fact that we’ve had to cancel so many in one year, repeatedly in certain places, it’s horrible.”
