ImageThe Maccabees have announced details of a 2012 headline UK tour. The run of dates begins in Glasgow, before stopping off here in the North East at Newcastle's O2 Academy on January 23rd, and then heading Brixton, Birmingham and Manchester. The announcement of these much anticipated live dates comes in the wake of a recent sold out low key tour, in which the band played intimate venues to fervent audiences in order to showcase their new material
This will be the third time the band have headlined Brixton Academy, having previously performed two sold out shows at the iconic London venue in 2009.
The five-piece from London - Orlando Weeks, Hugo White, Felix White, Rupert Jarvis and Sam Doyle - also recently confirmed a release date of January 9th for their highly anticipated third studio album ‘Given ToThe Wild'.

Taking sonic inspiration from a disparate collection of musical peers such as The Stone Roses, Kate Bush and David Bowie, ‘Given To The Wild' finds the band ascending to new heights, both sonically and lyrically.
The UK dates for the January 2012 tour are as follows: -
23rd - Glasgow QMU
24th - Newcastle Academy
26th - Brixton Academy
27th - Birmingham Institute
28th - Manchester Ritz
