Same Suit, Different Tie
You may remember this song if you caught The Maine on their last tour stop in Salt Lake. This track comes off their latest, highly-acclaimed album American Candy. Glistening with 90s pop-rock sounds similar to those of Third Eye Blind & Matchbox Twenty, The Maine seem construct their own rock version of Macklemore’s “Thrift Shop.” The Maine are still touring to support this new release, so you can expect them to play a few numbers off this album, hopefully this song. Richie sat down with The Maine to discuss their new album before their last show here. Watch the Interview here.
Love & Drugs
Off of the slower, more melodramatic release Forever Halloween. This is a song you could either rock out to in a live show, or let spin on your record player as you wind down. During their 2013 co-headling show w/ Anberlin, John prefaced this song by saying “ this song is about not doing bad things.”
Their third album, Pioneer, serves as a more overall energetic and rambunctious release. Take “My Heroine” for example, the song is led by loud hard-rocking guitars, a steady drum beat, and John’s crooning lyrics about his “Heroine.” Turn you speakers or headphones and rock out to this old fashioned Rock N’ Roll tune.
We can expect to hear a few songs from their second LP, Black & White, being their most commercially successful album peaking on the Billboard Top 200 at #16.
Into Your Arms
A fan-favorite and perhaps their most notable song in their discography. They have been known to play a stripped-down acoustic version of this song during their live shows, featuring John playing solo on the piano.
Bonus: Wolf – Beach Weather
Here is the latest single from the opener, Beach Weather.
