In preparation for their slot on May 10th at the Great Escape Festival in Brighton, Maximo Park will play two intimate warm-up shows.

The first will be at the Sugarmill in Stoke on the 8th May (tickets) and The Duchess in York on the following night (tickets). The band are promising to showcase some new material from their fourth studio album due out later this year as well as favourites from the previous three albums.
