Being a person who’s into music, North East born and someone who speaks to people from lots of different backgrounds thanks to being at Uni, I’m often asked about regional bands that are worth checking out. High on that list, along with Sam Fender and Richard Dawson, is Maxïmo Park.

The indie rockers hit the mainstream with their killer debut A Certain Trigger back in 2005, as the Tyneside band blended garage rock with the new wave of indie that was blooming. Nearly two decades later the band have continued to develop, as their latest album Nature Always Wins brings a lighter and synth-heavy twist on that iconic Maxïmo Park sound.

The band will be utilising that two decades back catalogue for a greatest hits show at Newcastle’s O2 City Hall on Friday 14th October. Labelled as the Singular Tour, there’ll be a focus on all the hits from their seven studio albums and they’ve described it as ‘a show like no other’.

Joining them on the night will be Pip Blom, a Dutch indie pop quartet known for their guitar-led, fun melodies. They’re a rising band on the indie scene, with the energy they bring to their live shows being praised for its danceability.

Maxïmo Park and Pip Blom play O2 City Hall, Newcastle on Friday 14th October.
