Biography

Leicestershire, UK (2005 – present)

Maybeshewill are an instrumental band based in Leicestershire, UK where they were formed in 2005. They are James Collins (drums), Matt Daly (keyboards) , John Helps (guitar), Robin Southby (guitar) and Jamie Ward (bass). They’ve worked tirelessly over the last five years through endless touring and three full-length albums to build a loyal and enthusiastic following across the world. Sticking to steadfastly DIY ethics, the band have self recorded all their material to date and aspire to be as self-sufficient as possible.

The band released their debut four-track EP entitled ‘Japanese Spy Transcript‘ on their own label, Robot Needs Home Records in early 2006 which was later picked up by Japan’s XTAL Recordings (Caspian, Yndi Halda) and released in an extend form in August of the same year.

Nottingham’s Field Records released the bands self-recorded debut album ‘Not For Want Of Trying‘ in May 2008. The record was Huw Stephen’s album of the week on his radio 1 show in its week of release and received glowing reviews from RockSound (8/10), Kerrang (4/5) and Drowned In Sound (8/10), amongst many others. After touring the release extensively around the UK with friends Fight Fire With Water, Worriedaboutsatan and And So I Watch You From Afar, they quickly began working on their second full-length.

A year later, in June 2009, ‘Sing The Word Hope In Four-Part Harmony‘ was released, once again through Field Records.

    I wish I liked "Fair Youth" more than I do. Just really hard to get into for me, which breaks my heart, because MSW is easily a favorite of mine

    What a beautiful music! I loved all the 4 albums, every one is kind of special. A solid inspired post-rock.

    Absolutely love their album cover artwork for "I was here for a moment..." Unfold the booklet and regret your decision to just order one piece of it!

    "Fair Youth" is a nice post-rock album, but an underwhelming and underachieving Maybeshewill one. Yes, it's only my personal opinion on it, so please keep the flames to yourselves. I saw them live last week, despite them being a band I've never truly been that much into. But, thankfully, the show was great and they're quite powerful on stage, to the point of even making the tasteless "Fair Youth" tracks entertaining. Though they emanate a sheer lot of energy while performing, they're rather humble on stage, something that somehow caught me by surprise. Things I learned from their gig: Jamie is fond of doing little scissor kicks while Robin enjoys kicking the air with his knee. A lot.

    they hopefully play a well balanced mixture of all their stuff on their concerts because "fair youth" doesn't rock at all so far, it's almost cosy to listen to :( glorious were those times when he filmed the clouds while paris hilton had sex with ghosts..

    Whatever you think of the album as a whole you have to admit In Amber is an incredible track
