The nostalgia of wishing you appreciated the beauty while it lasted is captured in the moody soundscape, tranquil guitars and hushed vocals.

    “The Maine” Are Entering A New Era With Self-Titled Album

    When I gave this album a listen I got reminded of my love for Pop Punk and how I listened to The Maine’s previous albums religiously when I was 17. The Maine has brought out their self titled record and define the bands new sound in 10 tracks. Just like the album cover art the atmosphere is dark, moody and electric.
