Alternative-Rock vets, The Maine, today release “April 7th”, their brand new song and the second single from their upcoming eighth studio LP, XOXO: From Love And Anxiety In Real Time via Photo Finish Records in partnership with their own 8123 imprint.
“April 7th” is a love song, through and through, but it is deeper than just “puppy love”, lead singer John O’Callaghan explains, “This song is about the first time you see someone. I mean truly, see them with all their vulnerabilities, all their flaws, all their beauty. April 7th was the day she let down her walls and allowed me in to see the side that so few get to.”
To add to the excitement and fun of the new song, The Maine will be releasing the video for “April 7th” on Friday, April 9 at 9am PT/Noon ET on their YouTube channel. Rian Dawson from All Time Low will join for a live chat as they countdown to the release. The Maine will tour this summer with All Time Low for Sad Summer Fest beginning July 9, the same day as the release of their new LP.
“April 7th” follows the release of “Sticky” and is another example of The Maine’s ability to craft an infectiously catchy song, while using insightful and thoughtful lyrics.
When “Sticky” was released, The Maine performed a free live-streamed concert via their YouTube channel. The performance has already been viewed over 50K times by fans and features “Sticky” as well as a full set of fan favorites. The concert was streamed HERE and is still viewable.
Aside from their incredible music, The Maine is perhaps best known for harboring a sense of community and giving their fans the authentic feeling of belonging. The Maine is John O’Callaghan (Lead Vocals, Piano, Rhythm Guitar), Kennedy Brock (Guitar, Back-up Vocals), Jared Monaco (Lead Guitar), Garrett Nickelsen (Bass), and Pat Kirch (Drums, Percussion).
