Maximo Park have brewed their own signature beer.

The ale - called Maxïmo No. 5 - has been made in conjunction with Newcastle's Mordue Brewery to celebrate the release of the band's fifth album, 'Too Much Information', which is due out February 3. Bottles of the beer will be available on the band's March tour of the UK and from select pubs on draft throughout the tour. The ale is described as a "unique Maximo Park amber/red beer" and is 5% ABV. For more information visit Morduebrewery.com.

Maximo Park's Paul Smith recently revealed that 'Too Much Information' is "moodier" than the band's previous efforts. Speaking to NME, Smith described the album as a "pot pourri of influences", explaining how the record began life as an experimental EP recorded with Field Music's David and Peter Brewis.

"The songs were just too good," says Smith on why an EP became a full-length album. "These songs all felt really strong, and in the end we decided we wanted to make a full-length record out of them."

Discussing the album, Smith continued: "This album's a bit moodier in places. Our early stuff felt like it was about escaping where we were from, but nowadays it's like going back. And if you're not doing something new, then what's the point?"
