Maccabees

The Maccabees are coming to the US for what at this point is just a two-night NYC run. For that, the band's previously announced Music Hall of Williamsburg show on June 20th will be followed by a Monday, June 22nd gig at Mercury Lounge. Tickets are on sale.

Both show will feature Swedish trio Miike Snow. That band was to make its North American debut at Santos in May, and then again at Studio B earlier in June. Both of those shows were canceled, so these Maccabees dates will be Miike Snow's first NYC appearance (no longer their first overseas shows as they played KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic on June 9th, and will play tonight, June 10th, in Costa Mesa).

The Maccabees' new disc, Wall of Arms, is out now on Fiction Records. Miike Snow's self-titled debut is out as well, on Downtown.

The Maccabees playing "Love You Better," off that album, and the video for their new single "Can You Give It," are posted below, with all updated Maccabees and Miike Snow tour dates...

I'm set for the Mercury lounge show, but I have two extra tickets (below face)for MHOW show on the 20th. Click my link and message me if interested. I'm looking forward to some good guitar sounds from the Maccabees definitely.
