The Maccabees (Formed 2004) The Maccabees are a London based indie rock band, consisting of the members Orlando Weeks, Hugo White, Felix White, Rupert Jarvis, Sam Doyle, and Will White. They are better known for their singles, "Toothpaste Kisses" and "Pelican".
Formation: The Maccabees were formed around the vocalist Orlando Weeks, guitarists Hugo and Felix White, bassist Rupert Jarvis, and drummer Robert Dylan Thomas. In 2008, Robert Dylan Thomas left the band, to be replaced by current drummer, Sam Doyle. Music Career In November 2005, the band released their debut single "X-Ray".
It was released through Promise Records, and the London radio station, xfm, played their release. It wasn't until 6 months later that the band received any significant exposure, due to their second single release, "Latchmere", released on Fierce Panda Records in April 2006.
Their music video was produced by Hugh Frost and Samuel Bebbington, and received a very positive response on YouTube. The band then signed to Fiction Records, releasing their debut album in May 2007, "Colour It In". The UK top 40 included their single "First Love", and following that was their single, "About Your Dress", which got to number 33. After the success of this album, the band toured the USA with Bloc Party.
In October 2007, the band went on a UK tour, which sold out at the Roundhouse venue in London. In May 2009, the bands album "Wall Of Arms" was released. It got to number 13 in the UK album charts. In 2010, the Maccabees debuted their single "child" in Brighton. In January 2012, the bands new album "Given To The Wild" was released. "Pelican" was the first single from the album, which received best contemporary song at the 58th Ivor Novello awards. The album was nominated for the 2012 Mercury Prize, and was later certified in gold in the UK.
As another addition to their acoustic set, The Maccabees shot this fantastic version of their track 'Spit It Out'. 'Spit It Out' is one of the many highlights from the band's fourth studio album 'Marks to Prove It' which the band released in July 2015 through Communion Records.
The Maccabees returned with their fourth studio album 'Marks to Prove It' on Fiction Records earlier this year, topping UK Album Charts for the first time. Steve Mason has remixed their new song 'Something Like Happiness'.
Kanye's entourage is so massive that a special viewing platform has been built to accommodate them.
With a matter of hours to go before he takes to the stage for his controversial Glastonbury headline show on Saturday night, it seems as if Kanye West is already making his presence felt. He’s bringing such a large entourage to the festival that other bands’ guestlists have had to be restricted.
British indie stars The Maccabees stated to BBC Radio 1’s Newsbeat that they “were told we only had one guest each this time,” according to the band’s guitarist Felix White. “I've not got that many other friends who want to come, but I'm just making a point!”

This year's Parklife has quite possibly one of the most appealing line-ups for a UK festival - especially such a small one - that has been seen for some time. Never mind the main stages - you can pretty much ignore the main headliners (Example and Plan B) altogether - just look at that DJ line-up; it's like a house fan's wet dream. But there's so much more than pop stars and house and dance acts lighting up the line-up as rock, hip hop and more are on offer at the Manchester festival.
High up on the list (and deservedly so) we have the Queen of alternative electro Jessie Ware, proving just how much can change in a year in the music business. The London-based singer/songwriter was practically unknown when she released her seminal debut Devotion last year and now she's rubbing shoulders with the likes of Rita Ora and Johnny Marr. Also towards the top of the list are The Horrors who may even have some new offerings for the crowd when they play the Now Wave stage on Sunday night. The Maccabees, King Krule and Liars should appease those looking for some more forward-thinking indie too. It's a shame to see Toro Y Moi so far down the list, but what better way to get you into the mood for the rest of Sunday than the disco-infused indie pop of Chaz Bundick? If Sunday is going to be a party, Chaz is the man to get everyone in that all-day party mood.
The festival organisers have especially outdone themselves with the selection of hip-hop on offer too, with the newly reformed Jurassic 5 standing out as one of the potential highlights of the weekend. There's a quality selection of new school heroes as well, with New Yorkers Action Bronson and wunderkind Joey Bada$$ looking like tantalising prospects, and don't be surprised if Joey brings some of his Pro Era cohorts with him. Also, one of rap's most electrifying and entertaining stars Danny Brown will have hip-hop heads writhing in anticipation when he brings his brand of alternative hip-hop to the Hudson Mohawke curated stage on Sunday. His first proper album Old comes out soon, and what a better place to show it off than here?
