The last week has seen Maxïmo Park thrust into the headlines as their triumphant new album "Nature Always Wins" took centre stage in a battle for the Official UK #1 album. Eventually landing just short at #2, it is a landmark record for the band who, after a much-praised live-stream show across last weekend, are eager to bring these new songs to life in a live environment. Unfortunately, but unsurprisingly, the band's June headline UK tour will be moving to October. "For obvious reasons, we have to reschedule our UK June tour to October. We can’t wait to play again! All previous tickets remain valid." - Paul Smith Full dates below Sat 2nd Oct - Boilerroom, Newcastle Sun 3rd Oct - The Mill, Birmingham Tuesday 5th Oct - The Leadmill, Sheffield Wed 6th Oct - EartH Theatre, London Thur 7th Oct - Trinity, Bristol Sat 9th Oct - EartH Theatre, London Sun 10th Oct - O2 Ritz, Manchester Mon 11th Oct - Saint Luke’s, Glasgow Tickets are on sale HERE
