Newcastle indie rock band Maximo Park have album announced the release of their seventh studio album 'Nature Always Wins'.
The follow-up to 2017's Risk to Exist, was produced by Grammy-winning producer Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Deerhunter), and recorded during lockdown in Newcastle, Liverpool and Atlanta. It will be out on 26th February 2021. Pre-order your copy here.
Nature Always Wins arrives as something of an examination, zeroing in on the notion of the self, identity as a band, and that of humanity as a whole.
The title nods to the famous Nature vs Nurture debate. Discussing whether change is capable under the influence of time, perspective, environment or if we are destined to be bound by our own genetics, it asks, “who are we, and who do we want to be, and do we have any control over it?”.
