British rockers Maximo Park will play five gigs in a single day to celebrate the release of their new album.
The Apply Some Pressure hitmakers will perform a string of shows in independent music stores across the north-east of England on Saturday (16Jun12) to promote their fourth studio record, The National Health, which hit shelves on Monday (11Jun12).
A post on the band's website reads, "All of us are regular record buyers and we prefer to indulge this passion at the shops of independent retailers who have a genuine love of music and knowledgeable, friendly staff.
"With that in mind we've decided to try and play at five north-east independent record shops in one day to celebrate the release of The National Health - an organisational nightmare and quite possibly foolhardy, but we like to stretch our boundaries occasionally."
The group will perform in shops in Stockton, Sunderland and Newcastle.
