We haven’t heard too much from Maxïmo Park since the release of their seventh album ‘Nature Always Wins’ in 2021, but something tells us it’s not going to stay that way for long - this morning, the band announced a run of live dates around the UK and Europe (due to take place later this year), as well as sharing their first new music in over 18 months.

New single ‘Favourite Songs’ is a feel-good, pop-indebted number, of which vocalist Paul Smith has said: “Our aim was to create a peppy yet powerful ode to the consolation of music and companionship in the face of other people’s preconceptions.”

Their Autumn shows will kick off in Dublin on 8th October, and they’ll play 20 dates around the continent before concluding the tour in Karlsruhe, Germany, on 14th November. Ticket pre-sale will open at 10:00am GMT tomorrow (Wednesday 27th March), before general sale starts at 10:00am this Thursday, 28th March.
