The Vamps made a whirlwind stop in Sydney over the weekend for their one-off show at Allphones Arena (read fan Montana’s review HERE).
Now in South-East Asia drumming up support there, the boys have just dropped the video for their latest single ‘Kung Fu Fighting’. And yes, it’s that ‘Kung Fu Fighting’.
Fear not, however… the band hasn’t just descended into being a covers act just for the sake of it. The song is featured as part of the soundtrack to ‘Kung Fu Panda 3′, which is due in Australian cinemas at the end of March.
It also follows on from CeeLo Green and Jack Black’s cover, used in the original 2008 film.
As such, there’s plenty of footage from the film featured in the video, while the boys do their very best to tit about kung-fu style.
Will it win them any new fans? Probably not. Is it a good cover version? Probably not. But The Vamps’ cover of ‘Kung Fu Fighting’ will certainly help raise the band’s profile and put bums on seats at their shows.
