THE MAINE is an American alternative rock band from Tempe, Arizona formed in 2007.
Their sixth studio album, Lovely Little Lonely has been released this month. This is what Ten Years of solid development sounds like…
Singles taken from the album have already been released this Spring.
The first single from the album — Bad Behavior — is a concoction of irresistible guitars with yearning melody and the kind of zest that makes you sit up and take stock — a super first dip into the record and insight into how the Maine sound has evolved.
John O’Callaghan [lead vocals] says, “If you go back in time and listen to our first record all the way up to where we are now, it is no secret that we stretched ourselves in every direction…”
From the comfortable attraction of Lonely to the besotted jitteriness of I Only Wanna Talk to You and the 1980’s recall of Lost in Nostalgia the album is a ravishing & classy slow-dump into dreamy nostalgiatmosphere.
The Maine are on the road this April for a massive headlining tour with support from The Mowglis and Beach Weather, which will take them over the U.S. and to Singapore, Brazil and the Philippines. [Tour dates below video.]
