More on The Maine:
Hailing from Tempe, Arizona, The Maine has matured both personally and sonically from their inception without compromising their integrity or losing their sincerity along the way. Fans have had the unique opportunity to grow up alongside the band, made possible by the band’s adamant insistence on meeting every single fan for free after each show on a tour.
With coverage coming from the likes of Billboard, NBC, Nylon, Alt Press, CNN, and more, The Maine’s ability to continuously flex their creativity and make dynamic records while maintaining their DIY mindset and keeping their authenticity has not gone unnoticed.
Over the course of their career, the band has toured and performed at festivals worldwide - including the UK’s acclaimed Reading & Leeds Festivals as well as headlining two of their own sold-out festivals in their hometown totaling over ten thousand tickets sold. At the forefront of what they do as musicians has always been their regard for their fanbase. Whether it’s volunteering planting trees in partnership with nonprofits alongside a group of fans, hosting a 100% free tour, creating immersive concert experiences that go beyond a traditional stage show, or phoning fans who pre-ordered an album from the band, The Maine is perhaps best known for harboring a sense of community and gifting their fans the authentic feeling of belonging.
Now with the upcoming release of what will be the band’s eighth studio album, The Maine is once again setting the stage to exceed expectations. XOXO: From Love And Anxiety In Real Timewill be released worldwide on July 9, 2021 in a partnership between 8123 and Photo Finish Records. The band will steadily be releasing new songs up until the album release, along with live events and engaging with their fans. The first single “Sticky”, is set for release on 3/19 along with a video, and is the first look at what’s to come in 2021.
The new 10-track album, XOXO: From Love And Anxiety In Real Time, showcases the best of The Maine, blending pop and rock in a radio-friendly and exciting way. John O’Callaghan’s powerful and smooth vocals dance through catchy melodies, expertly backed by the rest of the band’s masterful performances. The heartfelt lyrics of The Maine have inspired fans since their inception and XOXO: From Love And Anxiety In Real Time continues the trend of insightful songwriting, touching on the topics of love and mental health while maintaining a positive and infectious sound.
