Hi! Me and my friends are seeing The Maine at all their UK tour dates next month and making a road trip out of it. We'll be updating this blog with all different content related to the tour, including a possible interview with the band themselves. Do you mind posting this ask publicly so that any of your followers might want to check it out? Thanks in advance :) x
Where have you been?! You haven't update in forever!!!!! Hope all is well! :)
Sorry, I’ve basically abandoned the blog. I work full time, and I just don’t have the time or interest for it anymore. I’m planning to keep the old posts up so people can still look through them, but I don’t have plans to update anymore
I have a question. I'm sorry if this is bothersome. Can you ask if anyone is going to the NC date to see The Maine and Mayday Parade that lives in South Carolina? I've been wanting to see them for years. If someone could befriend me and give me a ride i would love you until the end of time. I NEED TO GO! please and thanks.
I think for us doing a documentary at this time is really important because so many things happened leading up to the release of this album that we have not been able to talk about in full. The process of recording/releasing “Pioneer” had so many ups and downs and we want everyone to hear the story directly from us. Garrett had been following us around with his camera the entire time and we ended up with so much footage we figured why not put it all together so we have something to look back on when we are old.
I think looking back at all the footage and remembering how much of a struggle everything was has been a positive thing for us. We are proud that we stood our ground and did what we felt was the right thing to do regardless of what anyone else had to say about it. That is the biggest pice of the story for me, it is not that a record label did not agree with our songs it is that we believed in something so much that we did not stop at any cost.
The other main feature on the DVD will be our live concert from Sao Paulo, Brazil on the Pioneer World Tour. We are very excited for everyone to finally be able to have a live concert to watch whenever they want. I am also excited about people having good quality versions of some reworked/unreleased material.
I have learned a lot about myself individually and us as a group during this process. I think we are stronger and have a better gage on where we see ourselves going in the future. I have never felt more proud than when the album was finally available for our fans to hear, and I hope they feel as proud as I do because we owe it all to them.
Our first ever DVD entitled “Anthem For A Dying Breed” featuring a live concert/documentary will be available for Pre-Order on the 11th of September and you will receive “Good Love” The Pioneer B-Sides EP as a free download with your order. The DVD will officially be released on October 16th! Get more info plus a new interview with John here
Hey I don't know if you can help me, but I'm trying to find an interview I read a while back. It was with John and kind of a long written interview. John talked in detail about how they got signed to Warner Bros and he mentioned this talk they had with some guy before signing and then that guy resigned from WB after or something like that. I know this is really vague but yeah...
have you checked the “interview” tag? if it’s not there, maybe someone will submit it and i’ll post it for you.
