If you listened to All Time Low or Mayday Parade back in 2008, chances are you probably also listened to Tempe, Arizona’s The Maine, an alternative rock band with a dash of pop-punk and the gorgeous hair and musicianship to match.

The band formed in 2007 and soon after released their first EP Stay Up, Get Down. With their powerful vocals from lead singer John O’Callaghan and a quick fan base, it wasn’t long before they ended up touring with bands such as Good Charlotte and All Time Low.

The Maine released their first LP, Can’t Stop Won’t Stop, in 2008, followed by countless singles, including a cover of Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself” in 2016 and their albums Black & White (2010), Pioneer (2011), Good Love (The Pioneer B Sides) EP (2012), Forever Halloween (2013), American Candy (2015) and their most recent album Lovely Little Lonely, released April 7.

Their ability to put out a constant stream of music has proven them as an incredibly talented force.

The Maine began their Lovely, Little, Lonely World Tour in March to promote their new album with support from The Mowgli’s and Beach Weather.

You can still buy tickets to their show at 9:30 Club on May 3 here.
