Maximo Park: New Album and Tour

After a 3 year hiatus, Maximo Park have returned with a fantastic new album 'The National Health' and are following it with a tour of North America.

Amongst a sea of bands, all trying to do something different and unheard of, 'The National Health' is refreshingly familiar. Maximo Park have taken their talent of producing contagiously catchy indie rock and made great tracks such as 'Hips and Lips' 'Undercurrents' 'Waves of Fear' and 'This Is What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted'.

Hopefully this album means Maximo Park will stick around for a while; I think it would be a shame if we had to wait another 3 years to hear more of their music.

If any stateside readers would like to see Maximo Park live, you can catch them at the following dates and venues.

9-10: Middle East Downstairs – Boston, MA 
9-12: World Café Live Downstairs – Philadelphia, PA
9-13: Webster Hall – New York, NY
9-15: U Street Music Hall – Washington, DC 
9-17 Lincoln Hall – Chicago, IL 
9-20 Slim’s – San Francisco, CA 
9-21 El Rey Theatre – Los Angeles, CA
Hips and Lips - Maximo Park
