The Maccabees are readying to play three shows at Alexandra Palace this June and July.

The five-piece group will perform on June 29-30 and July 1 as part of their Farewell Tour.

The group previously announced their split in August 2016 after 12 years together.

They released a statement on their social media, writing: "The decision has obviously been an incredibly difficult one, given that The Maccabees has been such a huge part of our lives until now."

They went on to say that there "have not been fallings-out and we are grateful to say that we are not leaving the group behind as a divided force".

Their last release of new material was their fourth LP 'Marks to Prove It' back in 2015.

It was released to critical acclaim and reached the number one spot on the UK albums chart.

It followed records 'Given to the Wild', 'Wall of Arms' and debut 'Colour It In', which were all showcased at their first ever headline slot at Latitude Festival in 2016.

They also thanked fans for, "the countless good times that we will never forget", so these farewell shows are going to be a special one.

Are there any tickets left?

Yes, limited tickets are available from Ticketmaster here whilst secondary tickets are available from Twickets at face value or less.
