The Maccabees announce new album 'Marks To Prove It'

Following on from their Mercury Prize nominated release ‘Given To The Wild’ in 2012, The Maccabees return with the announcement of their forthcoming album.

The band's fourth studio release 'Marks To Prove It' was recorded at their own Elephant Studios and aims to encapsulate the urban feel of their local neighbourhood.

“It became about the night time, the inner city stripped-back and about the band dynamic again,” says guitarist Felix White.

“One of the things we were clear about for the album, “ adds frontman 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.”

'Marks To Prove It' will be available from the 31st July via Fiction Records and you can listen again to the album's title track and lead single and see the album's full tracklist below.

‘Marks To Prove It’ Tracklisting:
1. Marks To Prove It
2. Kamakura
3. Ribbon Road
4. Spit It Out
5. Silence
6. River Song
7. Slow Sun
8. Something Like Happiness
9. WW1 Portraits
