Maximo Park are gearing up to release their much anticipated new album "The National Health" today, and to celebrate, they will be attempting to break the world record for playing the most instores in one day, by playing no less than five special instores in the northeast, in Stockton, Sunderland and Newcastle on Saturday, June 16th.
Paul Smith himself says:
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. Join us!
These are sure to be entirely unique, enthralling shows so be sure not to miss out!
