Maxïmo Park are today announcing details of a singles-only tour and one-off 7-inch single, featuring brand-new song ‘Great Art’.

As a band well-known for their album craft but equally beloved for their stand-out big-hitters, the Sïngular Tour is a rare chance to hear Maxïmo Park press play on the jukebox they’ve been meticulously curating over the last 18 years. Celebrating the art of the single, the band will perform the likes of ‘Apply Some Pressure’ and ‘Going Missing’ from their breakthrough debut album A Certain Trigger, to ‘All Of Me’ from their latest album Nature Always Wins, via whirlwind fan-favourites like ‘The National Health’ and ‘Our Velocity’. It will be a show unlike any they have presented before.

See the band on the Sïngular Tour at the following venues. Tickets are on general sale from March 31st.

Maxïmo Park are also sharing a brand-new single, ‘Great Art’ – their first new music since the release of their acclaimed 2021 album Nature Always Wins, which peaked at #2 on the Official UK Albums Chart. It is a song that distils the frustrations felt by a decade-plus of right-wing rule that has decimated communities, generational and international relations – and notably the arts world. Maxïmo Park have always worn their politics well, and ‘Great Art’ makes for yet another hook-filled, thoughtful – and scathing – addition to the canon of singles that have helped to define their extraordinary reputation as alt-pop hit-makers. Singer Paul Smith comments on the new single:

“The song is about the insidious nature of Conservative ideology, and a response to people who say, “at least we’ll get some great art out of it!” We’re excited to have new material to play alongside our other singles on the Sïngular tour – we’ve always written songs crammed full of hooks, so that’s our ideal medium in some ways.”
