UPDATE: RockNess 2013
This coming Summer, The Maccabees will be hitting the festival circuit in Europe and one of their first confirmations, in addition to their already confirmed appearance at this year's Isle of Wight festival, was revealed earlier in the week. The festival appearances will come after a late Winter tour of North America this year, hitting the U.S., Canada and Mexico (see below).
Tickets for the festival are on sale now via the festival's website (link above).
Handsome English indie-rock band, The Maccabees, have just announced their 2013 USA, Canada & Mexico tour. The tour kicks off Feb 8th in the Midwest at the Varsity Theater in Minneapolis, followed by a show at Lincoln Hall in Chicago .They will then head up to Canada to play two shows in Montreal and Toronto. Back to the states, the band will be making appearances at The Bowery Ballroom in Manhattan and The Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn just in time for Valentine's Day. They are then scheduled to head south, hitting up major cities on the way to Texas (Yee-Haw) and then finally, Mexico City!
The Maccabees, hailing from South London, England, have released three albums to date. They released their debut album Colour It In in 2007, followed by Wall of Arms in May of 2009. Their most recent album, Given to the Wild, was released January 9, 2012, to favorable reviews. The album debuted at No. 4 on the UK album chart, the highest of any release thus far, and was certified gold in the UK in October.In 2010, the band was picked to be one of the headliners for the Shockwaves NME Awards Tour alongside fellow indie-rock bands Bombay Bicycle Club, The Drums and The Big Pink. Given to the Wild has been nominated for the Mercury Prize award in September of 2012, as well as Best Album at the Q Awards in 2012. Tickets for the 2013 tour have gone on sale this week, so now would be a great time plan ahead for a fun night out with friends or a romantic date with your lady/gentleman in February!
