The Maine Announce New Album, Release First Single

Formed in Arizona back in 2007, The Maine now release their sixth studio album in their tenth year together as a band. Over the years, the band has been labelled as pop, alternative, rock, emo and everystyle in between. Now, The Maine continue to defy genre stereotypes with their newest album and independent release, Lovely Little Lonely. First single and alt-radio track, “Bad Behavior” dances its way into your head and in true pop fashion, refuses to leave – making an impact with its catchy hooks. The song tethers true to the heart of The Maine’s charm – frontman John O’Callaghan’s writing style – packaging it together as poetic pop. The album pushes into rock boundaries with tracks like “Do You Remember” while the haunting “Black Butterflies & Deja Vu” uses much softer vocals. Cohesively, the album flows together as the perfect natural evolution from their last full length, American Candy. Listen here

The band allowed the fans a unique look into the creation of this record with an online web series following the studio process. The Maine continues to redefine what it means to be a band nowadays, proven when they started the year by hosting their very own music festival. The Maine is John O’Callaghan, Pat Kirch, Jared Monaco, Garrett Nickelsen, and Kennedy Brock.

Earlier today, the band announced the upcoming album with the release of its first single “Bad Behavior”. The single is currently people serviced to alternative radio with an impact date of February 14th 2017. “Bad Behavior” is currently available on iTunes and Spotify.

Lovely Little Lonely will release worldwide April 7th 2017. Fans can pre-order the album now via the band’s website. The band will spend most of the year out on the road with dates worldwide. Today, the band announced their North American tour featuring support from The Mowgli’s and Beach Weather along with dates in the UK, Singapore, the Philippines, and Brazil.
