Artist Bio

A DIY affair from the get-go, the band Vacations formed in 2016 primarily as a songwriting vehicle for Campbell Burns, Burns later adding band members Jake Johnson, Nate Delizzotti, and Joseph Van Lier. Their song “Young” is certified Gold in Canada, Australia, and Poland, and is certified Platinum in the U.S., and their single “Telephones” is also certified Platinum in the US as of December 2023. The band has racked up over 1.5 billion streams worldwide, an average of 65 million streams/month, including over 750 million streams within the last year and over 2.5m Shazam’s. Not just a streaming band, the group has become known for their raucous live shows, doubling venues from 500 capacity to 2,000+ in under two years. They sold out both of their headline US tours since 2022 and their first ever UK run, followed by yet another sold out set of dates with their massive North American fall co-headline tour with Last Dinosaurs that included shows at Webster Hall and The Novo, and have performed at Austin City Limits, All Things Go Festival, The Great Escape, All Points East, and The Sounds Project in Indonesia. They kick off 2024 with performances atLaneway Festival in Australia in February and Treefort Festival in March.

“Home” is not always a literal place. Sometimes, “home” represents inner peace and simply learning to hold space for yourself. This is where Vacations lead singer and guitarist Campbell Burns has arrived as he and bandmates Jake Johnson, Nate Delizzotti, and Joseph Van Lier release their third LP, No Place Like Home. The new project, produced by Campbell and John Velasquez (Zella Day, Broods), follows an intense period of transformation for Campbell, who was forced to cancel all touring commitments due to COVID restrictions and subsequently came down with a severe bout of writer’s block. After seeking therapy, he was eventually diagnosed with Pure OCD, a subtype of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder marked by intrusive, unwanted, and uncontrollable thoughts. “I began to hit a wall, and then another wall,” Campbell elaborates of this time. “I found it extremely difficult to write anything for years. I didn’t know what Vacations’ voice was anymore, or even my own in a day-to-day sense. I had to find a way to fall back in love with music and so much else in my life, or I knew I would simply cease to exist.” As the world began to open up, so did Campbell’s vibrant creative spirit. Vacations hit the road for the first time in two years, selling out The Fonda in LA and playing Austin City Limits Festival in Austin, experiences that partially inform No Place Like Home, which also engages in nuanced discussions around mental health, personal growth, and sexuality.
