The promo clip features This Is England actor Thomas Turgoose as a Maximo Park superfan. Frontman Paul Smith also makes a cameo in the video.

The band release their fourth album, 'The National Health', on June 11. It was recorded with Pixies and Foo Fighters producer Gil Norton.

Speaking about the album, frontman Paul Smith said: "We're in a global recession and everyone is being bombarded with bouncy, happy music. The nation is out of control and the record is about taking back control, and being a force for change in your own life."

They also play Stoke Sugarmill tonight (May 8) and York's The Duchess tomorrow (May 9), as well as a number of festival dates including Newcastle's Revolution festival and Kendal Calling.
