Returning indie stars Maximo Park have announced an eight-date UK tour, taking place in November 2012. Tickets go on sale Friday, 1 June, 2012.
The band announce their winter dates ahead of the release of their new album, 'The National Health', which is released 11 June, 2012. The new tour will be the band's first in three years.
Maximo Park frontman Paul Smith recently spoke to Gigwise about the 'dangerous' cuts to arts funding made by David Cameron's coalition government.
"Creative people are in the minority. You only have to look at the cabinet to see that. the language that comes from the government is very dangerous," said Smith. "You end up feeling marginalised. Obviously, a lot of arts stuff is not seen as important as getting the country back on track economically but if we live in a country without brave pop music and films then we'll be in a society that is poorer and squeezed in the most fundamental way. Without art I think society is poorer and impoverished."
