They also reveal tense arguments over shaker usage.

In a recent interview with the NME, the Maccabees talk about their forthcoming album, which is so far (for the procrastinators among us) a highly commendable "year and a half late". The album will come as the follow up to their critically-acclaimed 2012 LP Given To The Wild.

They also gave the interview doing their best attempt at reading the NME.

Sort of weirdly, they'll be working on the album "on Christmas Day and Boxing Day", and they say that it will be "much more stripped back -honest sounding - compared to Given To The Wild."

Here's the full interview.
