Maximo Park Sets Out To Conquer The USA

First off, congratulations are in order to Paul and the rest of the Maximo Park crew as their new single, “Graffiti”, is at #1 on the NME chart this week. Now that that is out of the way, Maximo Park have announced that they are planning on touring North America this summer and hitting some more places other than New York and Los Angeles. The close to month long tour kicks off in Maryland and wraps up in Washington. If you don't see your city listed below then don't freak out yet. Rumor has it there might be one or two more dates added on to the final tour. If you don’t go see them live this time around then you are pretty lame, seriously, as these guys just might be the most fun live band out there today. (Their new record is pretty kick-ass too I might add.)

In addition to the USA touring dates, the guys’ official site has some other news for our friends across the pond in the UK. They are planning on having a special boat party in Newcastle, their hometown, on May 16 (that is the UK release date for their full-length, A Certain Trigger). More info on that can be found here.
