Maximo Park 2013 Australian Tour
Previously announced for Falls and Southbound, Maximo Park will also play a headline show in Melbourne early next year.
It’s been seven years since Maximo Park released their critically acclaimed and Mercury Prize nominated debut album A Certain Trigger, alongside with their breakthrough single Apply Some Pressure. Their recently released fourth album The National Health was recorded with the Gil Norton (Pixies, Foo Fighters, Patti Smith).
“We’re in a global recession and everyone is being bombarded with bouncy, happy music,” explains frontman Paul Smith. “The nation is out of control and the record is about taking back control, and being a force for change in your own life. It can’t speak for everybody but it has its eyes and ears all around us… that’s always been a Maximo Park thing: look at yourself. See how you relate to yourself and hopefully someone else will have something in common with it. Our songs are built on empathy. I would hope it’s as vital a music as people would want to hear.”
Support will come from Glass Towers.
Maximo Park play The Corner Hotel on Wednesday January 2. Tickets on sale now through the Corner box office.
