Published Mar 13, 2009Warp's resident post-punk revivalists Maximo Park have lined up a third full-length. The Brits are calling this one Quicken the Heart and are releasing it in the UK on May 11 (presumably May 12 in North America) via their 20th anniversary-celebrating label home. As is the norm, it will come in CD, LP and digital download formats, along with a special CD/DVD package up for grabs that includes a 65-minute tour doc.
Maximo Park recorded this follow-up to 2007's Our Earthly Pleasures in L.A. with producer Nick Launay (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Talking Heads, Nick Cave) and are currently giving a taste of the album with teaser track "Wraithlike," which you can download here.
