'Leave This Island' gets re-worked
Maximo Park

Mogwai have stepped in to remix Maximo Park's new single 'Leave This Island'.

Maximo Park are in the mood for risks. Completing work on their upcoming album, new single 'This Island' is a dark, neo-industrial track which harks back to their post-punk roots.

Handing the stems to Mogwai, the band were seemingly invited to do whatever the hell they like. Responding in kind, the Rock Action group stripped 'Leave This Island' apart and re-built it as a savage piece of electronics.

Entirely instrumental, the remix harks back to that minimal wave / dark wave sound whilst retaining the contagious, leg-splitting rhythms of the original.

Listen to it below.

Maximo Park will release new album 'Too Much Information' on March 3rd. The band have confirmed the following shows:

6 Portsmouth Pyramids
7 Bristol 02 Academy
8 Glasgow Academy
10 Liverpool 02 Academy
11 Nottingham Rock City
13 Leeds 02 Academy
14 Birmingham Institute
15 Manchester Academy
17 Norwich UEA
19 Oxford O2 Academy
20 London Forum
21 Newcastle O2 Academy
