Not long after The Maccabees split, frontman Orlando Weeks announced his return with a new hardback book and accompanying soundtrack album.
Although best known for music, Weeks was first drawn to art. He studied Fine Arts at the Camberwell College of Arts before pursuing a degree in Illustration at the University of Brighton.
Weeks rediscovered his passion for illustration and storytelling during downtime as The Maccabees toured in support of their chart-topping final album ‘Marks To Prove It’. When the band disbanded, Weeks’ three creative endeavours (songwriting, storytelling and illustration) converged as he developed the story of The Gritterman.
Orlando Weeks tour dates listed on Ents24.com since Oct 2017.
