The London five-piece are set to headline Latitude Festival this summer, which will be their first ever festival headline slot.
In preparation for taking to the stage, The Maccabees have confirmed two intimate shows. The Maccabees will play Cardiff University on 13 July and Liverpool’s O2 Academy on 14 July.
The Maccabees' Latitude Festival performance will capture the crowd. They took over the main stage at Leeds and Reading Festival 2015 and were voted the best live act by NME readers.
The Maccabees are an incredible live act, with Orlando Weeks’ chilling vocals and endearing stage presence, Hugo and Felix White’s intricate guitar riffs, Rupert Jarvis’ bass and Sam Doyle’s skilful drumming.
About The Maccabees
Releasing their first album in 2007, Colour It In, The Maccabees established their selves as an indie-rock band with a difference. They followed the release with 2009’s Wall Of Arms and 2012’s Given To The Wild.
The group’s honest and emotional lyrics meant tracks such as Precious Time, First Love, Wall Of Arms and Love You Better resonated with their audience and kept fans interested in what the London-formed five-piece would deliver next.
In 2015 Marks To Prove It was released. The album was the group’s first chart-topping hit. It included a number of incredible tracks, such as Something Like Happiness and Ribbon Road.
