Maximo Park announce new album ‘Risk To Exist’ with the spiky title track

The Geordie indie-kings will drop their sixth album on April 21st
After spending the majority of the last two years celebrating the anniversary of their 2005’ debut ‘A Certain Trigger’, Maximo Park are back with new album ‘Risk To Exist’.

Revealed with the bristling title track itself, ‘Risk To Exist’ will be the band’s sixth studio album and first since 2014’s ‘Too Much Information’.

Speaking about the album, frontman Paul Smith explained that “The album is, ultimately, about empathy. Some songs are simple messages of solidarity and others are fuelled by anger at the elitist, established order of British society. There’s a questioning of power throughout and a feeling that there must be a different way of structuring our society in order to alleviate inequality. Musically, the songs reflect more soulful and groove-based influences, allowing more space in the arrangements than ever before. The central idea is to align great pop melodies with songs that reflect the state of the nation.”

So expect some bonafide indie-stormers, which we bloody love the sound of. You can delve into ‘Risk To Exist’ below, which features Mimi Parker from Low chiming in with a collaboration that stems across the album itself.
