The Maccabees @ Knitting Factory in 2007 (more)
The Maccabees

No prizes for guessing which band have been hogging the Maccabees' stereo. Wall of Arms makes use of epic production, eerie chants and the general feeling that Orlando Weeks is singing like the world's about to end tomorrow (which, of course, it may well be). If this all sounds a bit Arcade Fire, note that production credits go to Markus Dravs, who worked on Neon Bible. [Guardian UK]
That's a review of the latest record from UK band the Maccabees, out now on Fiction Records. The band has extensive tour dates scheduled for Europe, in both May/June and again in the fall.

The band comes stateside in June. So far the only public date is a Brooklyn show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg on Saturday, June 20th. Tickets go on sale Wednesday, May 6th at noon. Stay tuned for more announcements.

All tour dates with a video for new song "Love You Better" and a BBC doc on the Maccabees, below...

They are currently touring the UK, saw them last week, pretty good.

Unfortunately for them, they have Mumford and Sons opening for them who are pretty much the best thing ever. Ever.

mumford sons are so ehhhh, like cliche and cheesy. especially when you compare them to their british folk brethren.

Maccabees are so qt! their debut was really great, but took a little while to get into. i suspect this record is the same. i'm so there for the MHOW show.

paris, brooklyn, hamburg? they must be vacationing to the US or something.

I took my first loan when I was 25 and this aided my family a lot. Nevertheless, I need the car loan as well.

Thank you, it's very wonderfull information it might be very kind for students. For example last year when I had a difficult of time at the end of semester with a continuous flow of academic assignments and drill, I had a brilliant idea to buy it somewhere and than use plagiarism checker. I was so exhausted that I did not care for what can appear when my academic work was written by flipside person. To my awesome surprise, research paper was estimable the price I paid for it. I was so contented with the quality and now everytime i use this service.
