Album Alert: Maximo Park – The National Health

The National Health

Maximo Park are coming back to us (finally) in 2012 with their very much anticipated fourth album, The National Health.  The album is due for release on June 11th.

Paul Smith, lead singer of Maximo Park, took some time out to explain a bit about the album;

We’re in a global recession and everyone is being bombarded with bouncy, happy music”. “The nation is out of control and the record is about taking back control, and being a force for change in your own life. It can’t speak for everybody but it has its eyes and ears all around us…that’s always been a Maximo Park thing: look at yourself. See how you relate to yourself and hopefully someone else will have something in common with it. Our songs are built on empathy. I would hope it’s as vital a music as people would want to hear.
