When we said we wanted to do a warm up show, I’m not sure we meant quite that warm. Thank you so much Leicester and thanks to The Cookie and &U&I. Tomorrow we play Robert Smith’s Meltdown at London’s Southbank Centre with iLiKETRAiNS and accompanied by some incredible friends on strings and brass. There are a handful of tickets left if you’d like to join us: https://www.southbankcentre.co.uk/whats-on/129162-maybeshewill-2018

We’ve begun rehearsals for our show at Robert Smith’s Meltdown Festival this June. It’s the first time we’ve all been in the same room since Koko and it feels good. We’re absolutely delighted to be bringing some phenomenally talented friends to accompany us on strings and brass for the show. There are very limited tickets still available which you can get here: https://www.southbankcentre.co.uk/whats-on/129162-maybeshewill-2018
Ten years ago today we put our first album, Not For Want of Trying, out in to the world. If we're honest we didn't think anyone would ever listen to it. Everything that has happened since was a relentless series of incredible suprises. We decided we wanted to comemorate the releases anniversary in some small way, so James, John and Robin got together with bassist at the time Andrew Jackson to talk with our long time friend and supporter Remfry Dedman about how the record came together, how it was recorded, how we feel about it in hindsight and how it fits in to Maybeshewill history.

We are pleased to announce that we will be playing a special, one off show in the Queen Elizabeth Hall at London’s Southbank Centre as part of Robert Smith's Meltdown on the 24th June. We were incredibly flattered that Robert asked us to join the line-up and once the shock wore off we decided that, honestly, It’s not the sort of invitation you turn down. As rehearsals get underway we’ll be able to tell you a bit more about what we have planned, but we’re delighted to be joined for the show by our friends iLiKETRAiNS. On-sale to Southbank Centre members: 13th of April - 10 am (GMT) On-sale to the general public: 16th of April - 10 am (GMT)
Bandcamp users! We thought it would be a brilliant an idea to move our music to an individual artist page with The Robot Needs Home Collective, rather than just on their label page, but in the process of doing so didn't consider how it would affect people who wanted the music in their collections, or who's primary method of listening to our music was in the Bandcamp app. We're in the process of figuring out how to fix this with Bandcamp, but if you're affected please feel free to message us through here in the interim.
Hello friends. It's been a while. This message is important. Dan Wild-Beesley of the incredible (and sadly departed) UK band Cleft is in need of help. He has been recommend a treatment for his Cancer, which has an 80% success rate, but it's incredibly expensive. Last week the band put the call out to musicians to help him raise the money he needs, and we wanted to do a little bit to try and help. We're selling this completely unique piece of Maybeshewill history. A 3m x 3m fabric backdrop we had made for our Fair Youth tour. It's beautiful and has been hanging in our old rehearsal room since the tour. We'd rather someone who liked the band had it, and we'd rather the money went to a good cause. Alternatively head over to the bands Facebook page where you'll find some great things from great bands and musicians going up over the coming weeks. https://www.facebook.com/cleftband/
The last twelve months have gone unbelievably fast. It's been a year since our last shows, and they remain one of the most incredible experiences of our lives. At the end of last year we released the film of the final show at Koko, and thanks to so many of you downloading it and donating a little money, we’re now able to donate over £1000 to Friends of the Earth, which will hopefully go a little way towards paying our debt for all the miles in vans and on planes over the decade or so we were a band. It’s not too late to help us do even better - if you want a copy of the film to keep, you can download it here, with a pay-what-you-want donation: http://www.robotneedshome.com/product/maybeshewill-live-at-koko/ Or you can just stream it here for free: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gi1B8lZNHbI&t=4501s So what’s everyone up to a year on? James is playing drums with Sœur, who have just put out a new EP and are touring relentlessly Jamie is releasing music as Dark Dark Horse, who also just released an EP. He’s also still producing records - including the new Gallops album which is out shortly. Matt its playing with Dark Dark Horse, Charlotte Carpenter and Magique, all of whom you should dedicate some time to get to know. Robin is actively making music for film, tv and games, as well as some other projects that I'm sure you'll hear about soon. John is not currently making music, but is still putting out records and promoting shows under the names The Robot Needs Home Collective and runs Leicester's Handmade Festival which is a matter of weeks away, and at which James, Jamie and Matt are all performing with their various projects.
