Status updates, tweets, memes, constant communication: seeing through the data smog is harder every day. Through all the neon flash and white noise, however, there are transmissions that slash straight through all the static and cut to the quick. Maximo Park’s fifth album Too Much Information is one such record, that hooks out life’s critical moments from the dizzying ebb and flow and brings them into HD-sharp focus. It’s the work of a band who, despite their compelling development since 2005’s febrile debut A Certain Trigger, have never confused consistency with give-the-people-what-they-want reliability.

“After five records you want to make a statement to the world and say ‘this is us and if you don’t like it, unlucky – we’re not going to change for you,’” says singer Paul Smith.

Maximo Park have announced US tour dates in support of the band's fifth LP, 'Too Much Information', available In The US On April 1st Via Daylighting / [PIAS] America. 

'Too Much Information' was recorded and self-produced  by the band in Newcastle and Sunderland  with additional production duties from The Invisible’s Dave Okumu and from Field Music’s  David and Peter Brewis. The album is the follow-up  to 2012’s  critically acclaimed ‘The National Health’, and sees the band reach new heights in their remarkable songwriting and  sonic experimentation.

From the beautiful weirdness of "Brain Cells", to the poetic "Leave This Island" and "Midnight On The Hill," and the refined rock of "Give, Get ,Take", 'Too Much Information' sees the band keen to challenge the listener  with some of their most adventurous musical and lyrical work to date.
‘Too Much Information’ will be available in the US on vinyl, CD and digitally via all reputable outlets  through Daylighting / [PIAS] America.

Maximo Park are: Tom English (Drums), Duncan Lloyd (Guitar), Paul Smith (Vocals), Archis Tiku (Bass), Lukas Wooller (Keyboards)
