Maxïmo Park have announced that they have started recording the follow-up to last year’s UK Top Five album ‘Our Earthly Pleasures’.
The as-yet untitled new record is due for release in spring 2009.
Speaking about the forthcoming offering, singer Paul Smith said in a statement: “The whole affair is going to be quite stripped down compared to the last album because we don’t like to repeat ourselves.
“Our producer Nick thinks it’s a dance record, and who are we to disagree? Don’t be alarmed though, we won’t be donning face masks and Gore-Tex like Altern 8, or dancing like electric monkeys. Apart from Lukas [Wooller, keyboards].”
The band have posted in-the-studio pictures and blogs at Maximopark.com.
