Maccabees at MHOW in 2009 (more by Leia Jospe)
The Maccabees have been spending most of 2012 touring behind their new atmospheric rock record, Given to the Wild, which dropped at the beginning of this year. The UK press have been loving it. The American press, not so much. Maybe that's partly why their dates have all been overseas so far. But for those in the US who do want to see the band, they've just announced their first North American show of 2012, which goes down in NYC on June 13 at Webster Hall. Tickets are on AmEx presale now and go on sale to the general public on Friday (3/30) at noon.
