Maybeshewill is spelt with a capital M and no spaces - It's one word, not three. Maybeshewill like the way the name sounds, not the meanings of its constituent parts.

Maybeshewill don't really like the way the music 'industry' works and so they try to do as much as they can themselves. They record, mix and master their records themselves, book their own shows and run their own label which releases music by bands that they think deserve more attention.

In the past three years Maybeshewill has...
Released an EP, two albums, a single, split 7" and split 12" in the UK, Europe and Japan, toured the UK with Fight Fire With Water, Worriedaboutsatan and And So I Watch You From Afar (though not at the same time), toured Japan with Ovum, been Huw Stephens' album of the week, played with the likes of Foals, Johnny Truant, This Will Destroy You, 65daysofstatic, Oceansize, Crippled Black Phoenix and Amusement Parks On Fire (as well as several hundred others), started their own record label, played the Dot To Dot, Truck, Hockley Hustle, Summer Sundae and Brainwash Festivals and been very bored in vans and on aeroplanes for a large proportion of their lives.

There are more plans afoot, but then there always is...


"They’ve the potential to become a domestic instrumental act that truly matters over the next twelve months." - Drowned In Sound

"All of this is incredibly easy on the ear, positioning Maybeshewill as a poppy alternative to post-rock bands that make you work your bollocks off just to be rewarded with a single nugget of prettiness or meaty riffage. We’ve all been there; we’ve all been impatient. Here, everything’s laid out for easy access and instant enjoyment, and you’ll be constantly coming back for more. This full-length introduction to what Maybeshewill can do signals the arrival of a compelling, fascinating talent." - Drowned In Sound (8/10)

"Most bands couldn't juggle the collective noise of Mogwai and Glassjaw without exploding... These songs are extremely quick to kick your teeth in when you least expect it" - Kerrang (KKKK)

"Full of sound and fury, signifying nothing - but that's exactly the point" - RockSound (8/10)
