Today’s song is “Marks To Prove It” by The Maccabees. This is the title track from their fourth full-length album out now. In support of the album, the band will be embarking on a North American headlining tour that starts at Austin City Limits on October 2nd (see dates below).
Later this month you can also catch the band in NYC headlining at the CMJ High Road Touring Showcase at Mercury Lounge on Thursday, October 15th. Tickets are available here.
In other news, the award-winning British band will also be releasing “Elephant Days,” a fascinating feature length documentary film about Elephant and Castle, an underappreciated area of London where the likes of Charlie Chaplin and Michael Caine came from and which also houses their studio, inspiring their fourth album, the Number 1 selling “Marks To Prove It.”
“Elephant Days” will have its global premiere as part of BFI London Film Festival on October 12th. Click here for more information on the film’s directors and editors.
Watch the video below and for more information check out the band’s official website, Facebook, and Twitter pages.
