It’s announcing-tours time! Next up – the Maccabees. The London indie-poppers will tour from the end of September, starting in Bristol and ending in Leeds, with the band’s first Brixton Academy show in the middle somewhere.
The group’s second record Wall of Arms was a gigantic surprise, and probably marks them as this year’s most improved band. It was a deliciously dark album, the yang to the yin that was their unbearably happy and twee debut.
We liked it a lot and recommend you go see them live. We certainly will be.
Those tour dates in full, then:
30 Bristol, Academy
OCTOBER1 Birmingham, Academy
2 Norwich, UEA
3 London, Brixton Academy
5 Nottingham, Rock City
6 Manchester, Academy
7 Newcastle, Academy
9 Glasgow, ABC
10 Leeds, Academy
