Maximo Park unveil far east tour dates

The band line up two shows next month

Maxïmo Park have announced two shows in the far east next month.

The band will be showcasing songs from their as yet-untitled-second album for the shows at Beijing Star Live on December 7 and Shanghai 4 Live Fabrique on December 9.

Speaking about the dates, singer Paul Smith said: “This band has allowed us to take our music to some far-flung places, as we attempt to connect with people on a mass level. China is beyond our wildest dreams, in terms of playing songs that we wrote in our bedrooms in Newcastle!

“It’ll be interesting to see how people react to the new songs in our set, since no-one will have seen us play any of them before, new or old. We want to cause low-scale chaos with people’s emotions!”

Songs slated to appear on the follow up to ‘A Certain Trigger’ include ‘Russian Literature’, ‘Girls Who Play Guitar’, ‘Books From Boxes’ and live favourites ‘Nosebleed’ and ‘By The Monument’.
