The Maccabees video interview at Leeds Festival 2009
Its fair to say that 2009 has been something of a successful year for the Brighton five-piece The Maccabees, not least due to the critical acclaim heaped on second album 'Wall Of Arms'. No longer viewed as just a standard run-of-the-mill indie band, the record elevated them into the bracket as a serious musical force to be reckoned with, while their live show continues to grow from strength to strength in the process.
At this year's Leeds Festival, Contactmusic spoke to guitarist Felix White about the year they've had, their plans for the future and revitalising old favourites in the process.
