Today, The Maccabees began their highly anticipated North American tour which includes dates with Mumford and Sons for their Gentlemen on the Road Stopover Festival, alongside select headlining shows on the east coast and mid-west. The band's forthcoming full-length titled "Marks To Prove It" also became officially available for pre-order today in the US on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon and Spotify.
The critically acclaimed, award winning British five-piece start their tour tonight at the MCU Park in Coney Island, Brooklyn NY (with Mumford and Sons), and will be returning to New York next week for their headlining show at Le Poisson Rouge on June 9th. Tickets are available here.
Written by The Maccabees - Orlando Weeks, Hugo White, Felix White, Rupert Jarvis and Sam Doyle - "Marks To Prove It" features eleven magnificent tracks that veer from the anthemic "Spit It Out", to the majestic next single "Something Like Happiness", the mournful lilt of "Kamakura" and the raw, explosive joy of the title track, first single "Marks To Prove It".
Produced by Hugo White, The Maccabees and Laurie Latham, "Marks To Prove It" is the work of a band in their prime. Drawing from their previous albums and experiences, the new songs are not just fuelled by a new found confidence, directness and power but also infused with emotion, highlighted by the addition of female vocals to bring the songs to new emotive heights.
Recorded at their own Elephant Studios, the album encapsulates the urban feel of their local neighbourhood. The artwork, a striking photograph of the Faraday Memorial on Elephant & Castle roundabout taken by David Busfield, provides the perfect visual extension of the album’s intended association with the area in which it was made.
“It became about the night time, the inner city stripped-back and about the band dynamic again,” says Felix White.
“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.”
What has gone before are three albums that have seen The Maccabees grow into one of this country’s best and most original bands. This album will not only be adored by their growing legion of fans but will also attract a whole new audience. Quite simply, "Marks To Prove It" betters their best and is nothing short of remarkable.
