The Maccabees Team Up With Arcade Fire, Coldplay Producer

December 18, 2008
The Maccabees Team Up With Arcade Fire, Coldplay ProducerThe Maccabees forthcoming second album will feature production from Markus Dravs.

The producer, who has previously worked alongside Arcade Fire and Coldplay, has been working on the project with the band in London and Paris.

Guitarist Felix White praised Dravs' “clarity of a vision” and said he was able to stop them committing "a lot of stupid second record ideas”.

When asked on BBC 6Music what impact Dravs had had on their new music, White replied: “In comparison to the first one, where we just put it down live and it was as it is, we had grander ambitions.

“He definitely helped us realise those. I think more than anything, he just loved the songs and we wanted to do a record with someone who really loved it and was going to be proud of what he did.”

The album, the follow-up to 2007's 'Colour It In', is due to be released next March.
