The Maccabees have announced details of the follow-up to their Mercury Prize nominated record ‘Given To The Wild’.
The new album is titled, ‘Marks To Prove It’ and it was recorded at their own Elephant Studios. Guitarist Felix White explains the concept around the new LP.
“It became about the night time, the inner city stripped-back and about the band dynamic again,”
“One of the things we were clear about for the album, “ adds Orlando Weeks, “was not having too many voices, too many characteristics, so that you could get to know the sounds, the instruments. And then, at the end, that meant we could reintroduce those characters, not in a way that was aping what had gone before but as a familiar force.
The Maccabees will release ‘Marks To Prove It’ on July 31st through Fiction.
