Alternative pop experts Maximo Park appear at Cambridge Junction on a UK tour supporting their new album 'Risk To Exist' (releases 21st April).
Bringing together their trademark hook-laden melodies and sense of urgency with off-kilter rock, soulful grooves and pop sensibilities, ‘Risk To Exist’ is a vital record for our times, raging against the dire state of world affairs in 2016 and crumbling political systems. These are pop songs that talk about big issues without talking down to the listener; an album where the political is also the personal.
‘Risk To Exist’ was co-produced by Tom Schick (Wilco, Beck, White Denim) and Maximo Park. Keen for the inspiration of unfamiliar surroundings after writing the album in their native North-East, the band decamped to Wilco’s studio, The Loft in Chicago, in Autumn 2016. Recorded completely live, the recording represents another bold stylistic step for the band after 2014’s Top 10 ‘Too Much Information’. Maximo Park have also enlisted Mimi Parker from acclaimed US band Low for the record, whose voice lends its inimitable warmth to five album tracks, including lead single ‘Risk To Exist’.
With 1,500,000 albums and four UK Top 10 albums under their belt to date, Maximo Park have once again shifted seamlessly into a higher gear. They have expertly crafted an infec-tious pop album for our time, confronting the crucial issues track by track, one monstrous hook at a time.
