Über The Maine
While their peers had their faces buried in textbooks and lab manuals, the teenaged members of the Maine were busy composing tunes that would eventually lead to MySpace stardom. After forming in January, 2007, the band quickly created a stir in their hometown of Tempe, Ariz., creating a buzz that led over 600 people to show up to their very first show. By December of that year, they signed to Fearless Records and released The Way We Talk, a debut EP of catchy power pop influenced by '90s mainstream rockers. During the summer of 2008, the Maine found themselves neck-deep in the music business when they released their first full-length Can't Stop, Won't Stop while simultaneously partaking in the Vans Warped Tour and as openers on The Soundtrack of Your Summer tour.
