+ #15 Top 200
+ #33 Billboard Top 200
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.
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.
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.
