The Maccabees have revealed their brand new video for new single ‘Marks To Prove It’, which is released on May 11.
Directed by Joseph Connor, the video intersperses time-lapse clips of London streets, Underground trains and construction sites with footage of the band playing in a rehearsal room.
Last month (February 18) at the NME Awards 2015 with Austin, Texas, Felix White said the three year gap between new material was to ensure quality. “It just had to be good enough. We thought it was going to be finished a year ago, but it just wasn’t quite there and now I think it’s magic, so it’s done.” In a new statement about the album, Hugo White said: “These new songs are a reminder of why we started the band. With the enthusiasm to play music that’s exciting and makes us excited.”
The band have also announced plans for a short UK tour in May. They will play intimate shows in Birmingham, Glasgow, Manchester and London.
The Maccabees will play:
Birmingham Institute (11 May)
Glasgow ABC (12)
Manchester The Ritz (13)
London Coronet (14)
