Arizona indie-rockers The Maine are back with their third independent album, 'American Candy' released via 8123 on March 31st 2015.
Along with the release date announcement, the band are teasing fans with an audio taste of the record - in the form of their first single, 'English Girls'. CLICK BELOW to watch the video for the infectious new single and find out more about the album...
Vocalist John O’Callaghan says the decision to launch this as their first single was strategic. “‘English Girls’ represents the overall groove of the album. The track is light and is a good indication of what listeners can expect from the accompanying tracks,” he says. “A sort of innocence resounds throughout it that to me is reminiscent of our headspace in years past.”
American Candy is the product of time spent in the studio working with producer Colby Wedgeworth (The Maine’s 2011 release, Pioneer). Not a band to get caught making the same album twice, O’Callaghan states, “the sheer fact that we recorded it with Colby Wedgeworth creates the easy sonic comparison to Pioneer, but we've learned so much about our approach and tastes that I believe it stands alone in our catalog just like all the rest.”
American Candy is currently available for advanced fan pre-order and set to release on March 31st.
The first single, “English Girls” is on iTunes worldwide. The band will support the release with a headlining US Tour (dates below).
