Bio

Despite sharing their name with a northeastern state, the Maine formed in 2007 in Tempe, Arizona, a collegiate suburb of Phoenix. Most of the bandmembers -- singer John O'Callaghan, guitarists Kennedy Brock and Jared Monaco, bassist Garrett Nickelsen, and drummer Pat Kirch -- were in high school at the time, and the guys wasted little time turning their '90s radio rock band influences into a familiar, infectious pop-punk sound. The Maine signed to Fearless Records and released a five-song concept EP, The Way We Talk, in 2007. After performing on the Vans Warped Tour one year later, the group issued a full-length debut album, Can't Stop Won't Stop, which was produced by emo-pop veteran Matt Squire (Simple Plan, Sum 41). The record peaked at number 40 on the Billboard charts and caught the ear of Warner Bros. Records, who signed the Maine to a major-label contract in 2009. After releasing a deluxe version of Can't Stop Won't Stop later that year, the group returned to the studio, eventually emerging in 2010 with the sophomore album Black & White. That year also marked some new developments for the band: their first headlining tour, and Album of the Year accolades for Black & White from Alternative Press. The Maine offered the full-length Pioneer in December 2011, their first after parting ways with Warner. The album was reissued a year later, packaged along with the six-track EP Good Love. Their fourth effort, Forever Halloween, arrived in June 2013, debuting in the Billboard Top 40. Produced by Brendan Benson of the Raconteurs, the album was the second to be released without major-label help. Months later, the Maine released their seventh EP, the five-song acoustic Imaginary Numbers. By 2015, the band began to sound more like the 1975 than the rest of the bands on the Warped Tour, as evidenced by their fifth album, American Candy. Featuring the hit "English Girls," the album debuted in the Top Ten of the Billboard independent, alternative, and rock charts. Further following that melodic pop path, they released a two-part covers EP titled Covers: Side A included their takes on late-'90s hits by New Radicals, Len, and Backstreet Boys, while Side B featured contemporary hits by Drake, Justin Bieber, and Rihanna. ~ Steve Leggett & Neil Z.
