Maccabees 2012

The Maccabees are on course for number one in the album chart this weekend.

They're expected to knock Adele off the top spot with new release Given to the Wild according to the midweek sales figures.

Speaking to Radio X last night Hugo and Felix from the band told us they started working on the new album straight after finishing their last one.

"We're proud of Wall of Arms, really happy with it and glad of where it got us but we knew immediately as soon as we finished it that we could do more," Felix confessed to Radio X's John Kennedy.

"There are a few songs on the record that I think the rest of the record might not have matched."
