The title track of Maximo Park's sixth album addresses the crisis of dislocated people. Frontman Paul Smith explained to Artist Direct
why the issue is so important to him:
"I'd seen an article in a newspaper in the UK. It was a longread article and so it went a little bit further than just a news story. It gave a little background into what was going on in the Mediterranean and the plight of the refugees, and of economic migrants as well - who find themselves in a very perilous situation when they're cut adrift when they're in the middle of the sea - when the people who have got them there, the smugglers and traffickers, who don't care about the end results of what happens - it's a desperate situation."
