SIRE/ACTION THEORY RECORDS DEBUT DUE OUT JULY 13 2010
NEW SONG “INSIDE OF YOU” AVAILABLE ON ITUNES TODAY
Burbank, CA – Sire/Action Theory Records artists The Maine have announced the release of their new album Black & White. Their major label debut is the follow-up to Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop, the band’s acclaimed first album, which came out on Fearless Records in 2008. The Howard Benson-produced release will hit stores on July 13, 2010.
Black & White is a departure for the band. “We’re trying to go for more of a raw feel – really just a free, loose record,” explains front man John O’Callahan. Inspired by the classic sounds of American rock-n-roll, the album is a collection of songs with universal, relatable themes that retain the sense of youthfulness and fun that is distinctly The Maine. A new song from the album, “Inside of You” is available exclusively on iTunes starting today, May 4th.
Hailing from Tempe, AZ, The Maine have been writing and recording and touring nonstop since they were barely out of high school. Their songs have garnered a collective 77 million plays on MySpace and they have sold 113k albums, 674k digital singles and racked up 1.5 million views on YouTube. The five-piece has been a part of four consecutive sold out tours and spent last summer as a marquee artist on the entire length of the 2009 Van’s Warped Tour. They will hit the road this summer on a nationwide headlining run.
As a gift to fans, The Maine is launching an exclusive Black & White pre-order campaign on May 13, 2010. Upon pre-ordering the album, buyers will instantly receive the video for “Inside of You,” along with two acoustic bonus tracks a week before release.
