The Maccabees have announced their new album is titled 'Given To The Wild' and will be released in January.

The London band worked on the 12-track album, their third, at Rockfield Studios with Tim Goldsworthy and Bruno Ellingham (LCD Soundsystem, Massive Attack) over the past 12 months.

They also worked on large parts of the record at their rehearsal space in the capital's Elephant And Castle district, before decamping to Suffolk to finish the record.

The band have said they took inspiration from "disparate musical peers" such as The Stone Roses, Kate Bush and David Bowie during the recording of the LP, which is the follow-up to 2009's 'Wall Of Arms'.

The tracklisting of the album, which is scheduled to be released on January 9, is:

'Child'
'Pelican'
'Feel To Follow'
'Ayla'
'Glimmer'
'Forever I've Known'
'Heave'
'Go'
'Unknow'
'Went Away'
'Slowly One'
'Grew Up At Midnight'

The Maccabees are also set to hit the road to showcase new material on a UK tour later this month – the jaunt is due to kick off at Gloucester Guildhall on October 21.
