Originally from Tempe, Arizona, The Maine is celebrating its 10th anniversary as a band this year. The group first formed in 2007, and its first album Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop was released in 2008. The Main has since released five more albums, the most recent being Lovely Little Lonely, which launched in April 2017.
In 2010, The Maine won three AP Readers Awards for Best Live Band, Album of the Year for Black and White and Best Song for Inside of You. Additionally, the band started and headlined its own festival in Phoenix called 8213 Fest to celebrate its 10th anniversary. The sold out festival was made up of more than 3,000 fans from all over the world.
