Vamps is the debut album by Vamps, released on June 10, 2009. The limited edition includes a DVD with the music videos for the album's three singles: "Love Addict", "I Gotta Kick Start Now", and "Evanescent",[1] as well as the video for "Trouble" (the B-side of "I Gotta Kick Start Now"), which features Anza.[2]

The album reached number on 3 the Oricon chart and received generally positive reviews.[3] Time magazine praised the album's "chugging three-chord rock", and said "all the hallmarks of classic Japanese rock are here, but amped up and hardened for a more streetwise generation." [4]
