The Maccabees spoke with The Guardian about their mayhem filled Brighton Concorde gig six years ago, feeling the “landfill indie” tag was undeserved, recording with the Dodworth Colliery Band, recording with Roots Manuva, and more.
“We wanted him to play with us at Brixton Academy,” guitarist Felix White said about the Roots Manuva collaboration, but the British hip hop artist wasn’t receptive. “He said, ‘Brixton? Last time I was there I saw the Police’. I said ‘That must have been a while back?’ He said, ‘No, the Metropolitan Police’.”
The Maccabees are out with the video to their new single ‘No Kind Words’, off the London, England indie rock group’s second studio album ‘Wall of Arms’, out soon on Fiction Records. Watch it below.
The Maccabees checked in with fans on their blog at MySpace (@themaccabees) on Tuesday (December 23). The Brighton, England indie rock group tell readers:
We hope you all have a great Christmas. Thank you very much to everyone for responding to our blog, we appreciate you letting us know that you’re excited to hear the record. Thanks too for everybody’s kind messages throughout this comparatively quiet year, which we spent writing and recording our second album. It’ll be great to come out and see you all from early next year.
