Maximo Park Bring Earthly Pleasures To Oz

Thursday, March 29, 2007
English quintet Maximo Park has followed an alluring debut with the altogether more accomplished Our Earthly Pleasures, out now on Warp/Inertia. Produced by Gil Norton (Foo Fighters, Pixies), album number two is, as the band says, “not an out and out rock record” - but it is heavier and more immediate. Maximo Park returns to Australia this August after a much-lauded tour in 2005. Share in their earthly pleasures at the Metro Theatre on Wednesday 15 August and the Prince Of Wales, Melbourne, on Friday 17. Tickets go on sale Friday 6 April, and can be picked up in Sydney from Moshtix and in Melbourne from princebandroom.com.au and local retailers.
