The Maccabees have started to write their new album and will be producing it themselves early next year in time for the end of 2013.
From The InterviewI think we're gonna do it ourselves, The way we made the last record, learning to do it ourselves, no-one knows better how to make our own record than we do. It's gonna have quite a lot of space in it. With the records we're listening to at the moment, there's so much faith in the songs that they're allowed to really breathe and exist on their own grooves.
