+ #4 Current Alternative Albums
+ #15 Top 200

+ #7 Independent Artist

Massive cult alternative act, The Maine’s Lovely Little Lonely has been topping charts and racking in millions of streams since its release on April 7th, 2017. In addition, the record has garnered rave reviews from the likes of NYLON, Billboard, People Magazine and more; and in its first week hit #4 in the Current Alternative Albums, #15 in the Top 200, #33 in the Billboard Top 200 and #7 Independent Artist

Lovely Little Lonely marks the sixth studio release for the band, who also recently celebrated their 10 year anniversary by throwing their own festival, 8123 Fest. The record is also the first that they have released entirely independently, and was recorded in an Airbnb in Gualala, California that the band converted into a recording studio. In celebration of the release, the band partnered with independent record stores, music venues, and coffee shops to carry limited edition physical copies of the album on release day. The band also hosted a full pop up shop with merchandise in Los Angeles and San Francisco during release week, where they were in attendance.

First single from the album, “Bad Behavior” 
blends infectious guitar with wistful melodies and an energy that is impossible to ignore – a fitting first look into the record and insight into how the Maine has evolved. O’Callaghan notes, “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. Through all of those twists and turns, however, our fans kept showing up. They kept buying albums, kept interacting online, kept growing the 8123 family, and most importantly, they kept listening. This helped us discover who we truly are as a band.” 
The track has garnered over a million streams since its release in January, and is still creeping up the alternative radio charts alongside “Black Butterflies and Deja Vu,” which was released shortly after.

the-maine-02From the slow burning “Lonely” to the lovestruck restlessness of “I Only Wanna Talk To You” and the 80’s tinged “Lost In Nostalgia”, and every moment in between, Lovely Little Lonely is a stunning achievement from a band who have a clear perception of where they want to go, without forgetting where they are from. “Familiar guitar tones and upbeat drums are a surefire trigger for nostalgia, but with a fresh new reason to fall in love all over again,” notes NYLON.

When they’re not playing sold out shows across the country, the Phoenix-based act are jet setting across the globe, taking their electric live show to sold out audiences and festivals internationally.  In their ten years together as a band, they’ve sold half a million records and 3 million songs collectively, as well as playing a completely free tour and holding free meet and greets in the spirit of staying true to their massive engaged fanbase. They currently sit at around 800k likes on Facebook, 118k followers on Instagram, and enigmatic frontman, John O’Callaghan has around 586k followers on Twitter. 

Since the release of Lovely Little Lonely, The Maine have been on the road tirelessly as a headliner with support from The Mowglis and Beach Weather, which is bringing them all over the States as well as to Singapore, Brazil and the Philippines.
