The Maccabees have announced they'll be releasing a new album this summer. Marks To Prove It follows 2012's Given To The Wild and is due out on July 31st via Fiction.

The LP was produced by Hugo White, The Maccabees and Laurie Latham, and recorded at Elephant Studios, with the Faraday Memorial on Elephant & Castle roundabout featuring on the album's cover (above).

"One of the things we were clear about for the album was not having too many voices, too many characteristics, so that you could get to know the sounds, the instruments," Orlando Weeks explains. "And then, at the end, that meant we could reintroduce those characters, not in a way that was aping what had gone before but as a familiar force."
