With Orlando Weeks having just announced a new book and companion album, it looks like the members of The Maccabees are already moving on after their emotional split earlier in the year.
Maccabees fans have another reason to be cheerful though: all of their back-catalogue is being released on vinyl! ‘The Complete Collection’ comes out on 20th October via Fiction Records, and will celebrate all fourteen years of the band’s career. The box set will contain all four of their albums, as well as a bonus disc of rare material. It’ll also contain a DVD of the feature-length documentary ‘Elephant Days’, which features an original soundtrack by the band and follows a cast of colourful characters around the Elephant and Castle.
Before The Maccabees split up, we talked to a bunch of bands about why they meant so much. Catch up with the feature here.
