Tonight sees Maximo Park back on the road with a mini-tour of record stores to celebrate the 10th Record Store Day and promote their new album, ‘Risk to Exist’.

Louder Than War recently gave the album a huge 9/10 for its musical and political credentials…and it is now available as a digital download or a limited edition signed physical package.

“Risk To Exist’ sees Maximo Park on blistering form, bringing together their trademark hook-laden melodies and sense of urgency with off-kilter rock, soulful grooves and pop sensibilities. Informed by the dire state of world affairs in 2016 and crumbling political systems, their latest body of work is a vital record for our times.”

Then, from 30 April to 19 May the band criss-cross the country to deliver their high-energy live set to no-doubt packed houses from Leeds to London and from Birmingham to Bexill – and all points in between.

This is a precursor to a packed festival season which sees them touch down at events in Germany, Spain and Latvia, before returning to the UK for seven further dates at Pennfest, Truck, Y-Knot, Times Square, Victorious, Bingley, and Beyond the Tracks.

Great track from a great band in a great venue. Shame the crowd haven't yet realised this is your most musical album to date

I was gutted to have missed out on being able to see you in Manchester... But, having listened to this multiple times, I'm kind of glad I didn't go... What happened to our velocity, girls who play guitar, graffiti, apply some pressure? Where's that sound gone? To say this new sound is disappointing is being generous

Studio version does not do this song justice. You guys need to record live and just retake the vocal in the studio. Absolutely unreal songwriting!

Paul must really love that blue suit and Leppard print shirt. Same outfit he wore at Margate in May! ! 😜

Rose-Ann Cullen this was the gig we were at!

Needs to be a live DVD brought out!

Katie Bickerton That's it... If I ever dress as a musician for something I'll be paul smith :L

There's defo a Rog-shaped blur on the balcony!

Love it 😊 Such a good nite we had in sheff xx

Stunning as ever - you were amazing in Berlin boys ❤️❤️

Sorry boys I think you've gone a bit bland.....

Great gig, honestly...I was so happy to be there...wonderful atmosphere

It's good to listen to a band and hear the words x
