Paul Smith and co will play eight shows across the UK later this year
Maximo Park have announced a full UK tour for later this year.
The band, who release their fourth album ‘The National Health’ on June 11, which they recorded with Pixies and Foo Fighters producer Gil Norton, will play eight dates in November.
The gigs begin at the O2 Academy Liverpool on November 1 and run until November 10, when the band headline Portsmouth Pyramids Centre.
The band will also preview their new material with a short tour next month, playing three intimate UK dates in Manchester, London and Birmingham in the days before the album’s release.
The band, who played an acoustic set in the NME office (check back later in the week to see the set) yesterday (May 28), have previously said that their new album featured “quite a lot of soul-searching”.
Speaking to NME in a video which you can see by scrolling down to the bottom of the screen and clicking, keyboard player Lukas Wooller said: “We spent a lot more time writing this record; we did quite a lot of soul-searching. Having gone through that process and be still talking to each other, I think we’ve realised what makes the songs quintessentially us.”
