The Maine // Announce New UK Tour & Deluxe Edition of Forever Halloween

The Maine have only just wrapped on a UK tour supporting Deaf Havana, but are already planning on another jaunt to the UK. And, this time it's out on a headline run. 
We caught up with the guys a few weeks ago; click below to read the interview and live review and find out where you can catch the guys on their Autumn headline tour...

You spend so much time over here; is the UK your second home?
PAT [Kirch, drums]- Yeah, definitely.
GARRETT [Nickelsen, bass]- Yeah, it’s weird going down a street and knowing where you are; not knowing anything else but knowing the street and “Oh, I’ve been in that Wagamamas ten times” [laughing].
Is Wagamamas your favourite food over here? Loads of bands that come over seem to love that or Nandos
PAT- I’ll take Nandos
GARRETT- I’ll take Wagamamas, definitely
You do have such a big following over here; we’ve seen quite a few The Maine tattoos…
PAT- Yeah, it’s wild.
GARRETT- It’s crazy how a song can mean more to that person than maybe even us
PAT- When we first started, we didn’t even know you could tour outside of America
GARRETT- Yeah, so tattoos was a different universe [laughing].
You have great interaction with the fans and are always hosting online Q&As- do you think that’s important?
PAT- I feel like that’s one of the only reasons that we can still do this; we’ve done it since the beginning and I feel like it’s made us who we are. I think it’s awesome.
