Warp Records’ new indie darlings, Maximo Park are making quite a buzz. This week alone their UK single “Apply Some Pressure” came out #14 on the UK singles chart and when the band showed up at their hometown HMV a riot broke out. Still don’t know what all the fuss is about? You can preview their album at one of these listening parties hosted throughout the states. I would advice on going to check them out. You can also view their new updated site here, where there are videos, free ringtones, and more. Finally, if you want to see them live then you can check them out at SXSW on March 19 when they play the Pecan Street Ale House (with The Cribs, Read Yellow, The Love Scene, Iain Archer, and Unbusted).
Here are the dates for the listening parties:
02.23.05 Los Angeles, CA (Star Shoes)
02.23.05 Atlanta, GA (MJQ)
02.24.05 Miami, FL (SpiderPussy)
02.24.05 Seattle, WA (Bad JuJu Lounge)
02.25.05 Phoenix, AZ (Hot Pink)
