Maximo Park

Maximo Park set to bring tour and blockbuster album stateside

The Maxïmo Park drought in the United States is coming to an end. The band has announced its first American tour in five years. The UK princes of all things melodic are poised to champion the highly anticipated release of The National Health, the band’s upcoming fourth album and first since 2009′s Quicken the Heart.

Frontman Paul Smith is calling The National Health a “crowd-pleasing blockbuster,” and Maxïmo Park’s high-energy live sets will undoubtedly capitalize on every ounce of the winning blockbuster appeal. Head over to the band’s website to hear clips of every song from the album before it is released stateside on August 28. If you can’t wait that long, you can purchase the digital release of The National Health on iTunes right now. The National Health is already available in both formats overseas, but all of our friendly UK readers surely know that.

As your excitement for all things Maxïmo Park builds, take a few minutes to enjoy the band’s entertaining superfan with a webcam clip for “Hips and Lips” while perusing tour dates below.
