MAXIMO PARK RETURN: FIRST TOUR IN 5 YEARS

MAXIMO PARK RETURN: FIRST TOUR IN 5 YEARS

NEW ALBUM "THE NATIONAL HEALTH" OUT SUMMER 2012

The UK’s maestros of all that is catchy, Maxïmo Park will be returning to the US for their first tour since 2007 in support of their upcoming album “The National Health.”

Since taking the world by storm in 2005 with their critically acclaimed opus “A Certain Trigger,” followed by “Our Earthly Pleasures” (2007) and “Quicken the Heart” (2009) and selling over two million records world wide to date, Newcastle’s mavens of jittery, slick pop will be embarking on a US trek of select cities this fall in support of their upcoming brainchild “The National Health,” a joint venture between the band’s own Daylighting Records label and brand new North American label Straight To The Sun, a part of the Musebox Label Group.
 

"We’ve been waiting for a few years to make our return to North America and now, with “The National Health” under our belts, we’re pleased to announce some new dates! The new album is a crowd-pleasing blockbuster (in our not so humble opinion!) so spread the word and let’s make these shows special. We assure our American friends we’ll make it up to them with a dose of pure, melodic, ROCK!!!”
– Paul Smith/Maximo Park
 

You can stream the full album on the band’s website. A video for their first single, “Hips And Lips” is out now. Be sure to catch Maximo Park in a city near you…

What The Press Are Saying

“Maxïmo Park live at the crossroads of
Joy Division, Franz Ferdinand and early Joe Jackson…”
– Rolling Stone
“They don’t dance around the point or pause to consider how to set themselves in the coolest light, they just go “Well, we’re in a massive global recession, the government’s stripping back public services, everything’s terrible. Let’s write an angry album called ‘The National Health’.” Brilliant.”
– NME
“…jaunty, precise power pop with punk’s antipathies, exuding a tentative cool.”
– Pitchfork
“In a field crowded with dangerously aloof players, Maxïmo Park sets itself apart by embracing the often-ignored warm-blooded side of the post-punk rebirth.”
– The AV Club
