The (continued) return of Maximo Park


Maximo Park are getting ready to release their third album, Quicken The Heart. (see here for tracklisting) on May 11.

On the basis of what I’ve heard so far -and what I present here for you, it’s going to be another fantastic album from the boys from Newcastle. There is concern in the world (well, NME anyway) that people are tiring of boys with guitars, but I like to think there will always be space for those who can do it well. And that’s the thing with Maximo Park, they do an excellent take on spiky indie guitar rock, rather than trying to turn into a third rate Coldplay.

First up, the video for the single ‘The Kids Are Sick Again.’ (Oh aren’t they just…)

Meanwhile, these two tracks have been made available for free download:

Maximo Park -‘Let’s get clinical.’ mp3

Maximo Park -‘Wraithlike.’ mp3
