maximo park are on the prowl…


Maximo Park. How do I love thee? The band is brilliant. They are smart. They are hip. They are better than you…and me. The new record Quicken The Heart is out in the US on Warp this coming Tuesday and if the first two tracks The Kids Are Sick Again and Wraithlike are a good indication than this third installment of the adventures of Maximo Park should prove to be their most varied and exciting one yet. Do yourself a favour, friends. If you haven’t picked up A Certain Trigger or Our Earthly Pleasures yet, do so at once or risk missing out on one of the more deserving bands England has produced in years.  Once you’ve done that, definitely take an opportunity to see the band live and I just happen to have the tour dates below. I love you, guys!
