The Maccabees

Story by Jack Foley

THE Maccabees have finished work on their new album and, as a taster, are giving away a new track hot from the studio… in addition to playing an extensive UK tour.

No Kind Words will be available to download from themaccabees.co.uk following its debut play on Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 show on Monday, February 9 at 7.30pm.

The five-piece play their first live dates of 2009 with two club shows in London in February and an Xfm Presents at the Barfly on March 5 prior to their headline tour.

They will play London’s Electric Ballroom, their first London headline since the triumphant sold-out Roundhouse show at the end of the Colour It In tour in 2007.
