Maximo Park second album plans revealed

Recording will start after Xmas

Maximo Park plan to start their second album before the end of the year.

Speaking as the band play the final dates on the O2 NME Rock ‘N Roll Riot Tour, singer Paul Smith said that once these dates were done, the focus will be on the follow-up to ‘A Certain Trigger’.

He told XFM: “We’ll be focussing on the second album after Christmas. We’ve written a few tracks and we now just need to get into a room get back to being a band that’s creating music, ready to go out on tour and play for another year or so.

“We might play one of our new tracks in December which we’ll be honing during the soundchecks in Europe and I’m just really excited about playing the new stuff. I just want to give more and more decent music to people.”

The band joined headliners Kaiser Chiefs and The Cribs on the first of three nights at the London Carling Brixton Academy last night (October 25). The tour ends with two dates at the Glasgow Academy on October 29-30.
