Maxïmo Park are an indie rock band, signed to Warp Records, who formed in Newcastle, North East England in April 2003. They consist of Paul Smith (vocals), Duncan Lloyd (guitar), Archis Tiku (bass guitar), Lukas Wooller (keyboards) and Tom English (drums).
Drawing comparisons to Pulp and Franz Ferdinand, Maxïmo Park were, along with cohorts The Futureheads, North-East England's response to the post-punk revival of the 2000s. Drummer Tom English is also in the band Field Music, but his contributions are becoming scarce as Maxïmo Park continue their expansion.
In July 2005 their debut album, A Certain Trigger, was nominated for the Mercury Prize. They also contributed a song to the War Child compilation Help: A Day in the Life. In 2005 they have swiftly risen to indie fame and their debut album, A Certain Trigger, hailed by some critics as one of the best releases of the year, has led to an increasing devoted fanbase in the United Kingdom, re-enforced by a series of increasingly large tours and a support slot to the Kaiser Chiefs on the NME Rock & Roll Riot Tour.
