With their first live dates for a good while just confirmed (they’ll be supporting Kasabian during a tour of the UK and Ireland towards the end of this year), The Maccabees have offered fans another update on the progress of their new album – and it sounds like a release is still some way off.

The Maccabees first entered the studio last year with the intention of having a follow-up to 2012’s ‘Given To The Wild‘ out by now, but studio progress has been much slower than expected.

Indeed, during an interview with NME back in January they claimed to have only completed two songs, and now the latest bit of news states that ‘recording proper’ has yet to start up again.

“These are the first live dates to be announced since the festivals last summer whilst we have been working on our fourth album,” the band have said. “Thanks for all the messages since we’ve been away and for keeping with us, recording proper is due to start very soon. Obviously, more news to follow in the future but in the mean time, take care and love to you all.”

The Maccabees’ support run starts in Glasgow on November 19th.
