Maximo Park: New Single & Tour Details

2014 is going to be a busy year for Maximo Park. With a new album 'Too Much Information' due for release on February 3rd, the band have confirmed the release of their single 'Leave This Island' on 24th January.
The song is at a slower pace than some of their earlier work, but non of the energy that made the band famous has been lost. Starting off with a simple drum beat and ripple of synths, the track lifts as it progresses and carries you through. In the track we clearly hear a band that knows what they're doing, without having to shout to be heard.
For the music video the band worked with artist Matt Stokes to create a short that looks at the life of a real 'Urban Hermit' living in East London. 'Leave this Island' compliments the short perfectly and becomes a soundtrack to the uncompromising promo video.
You can watch the track on the link below (hopefully will be on this site soon).
