Maximo Park, England's sensational indie rock artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Brighton Music Hall!
.Maximo Park was formed in Newcastle upon Tyne (England) in 2001 by guitarist Duncan Lloyd, bassist Archis Tiku, keyboardist Lukas Wooller, and drummer Tom English. They recruited vocalist Paul Smith and named themselves after a meeting place in Cuba for communists. Their musical style is best described as a blend of indie rock (a genre of alternative rock that originated in the United States and the United Kingdom in the 1980s, encapsulating the genres chamber pop, indie pop, lo fi, math rock, neo psychedelia, post punk revival, sadcore, and shoegaze), new wave (a genre of rock music that moved away from smooth blues and rock and roll sounds to create pop music that incorporated electronic and experimental music, mod, and disco), and post punk revival (genre of alternative rock and indie rock that developed in the late 1990s and early 2000s, inspired by the original sounds and aesthetics of garage rock of the 1960s and new wave and post-punk of the 1980s). They’ve had a stellar career with 6 studio albums (all of which were top 15 hits on the UK Albums chart), 2 compilation albums, 23 music videos, 1 extended play, and 23 singles.
Don’t miss your chance to see these artists add a unique touch to indie rock, post punk revival, and new wave music!
