Black Butterflies & Déjà Vu (Lyric Video) // .@themaine


The Maine debut new track:
"black butterflies & déjà vu" on NYLON
taken from the new record "Lovely Little Lonely"
available independently April 7, 2017
+ headlining world tour this Spring 

"The upbeat song kicks off with a loud roar of guitar riffs that will instantly give you a rush while the soothing vocals chime in to ease your mind." - NYLON 

Massive cult act, The Maine are gearing up to release their highly anticipated record, "Lovely Little Lonely" April 7, 2017. Today, the band release the next track from the record, "black butterflies & déjà vu" exclusively on NYLON

"Black Butterflies" is an expansive and thoughtful soundscape - teamed with an underlying sense of urgency, it's the quieter moments of the song that make the biggest statement.  Band frontman, John O'Callaghan explains: "This song is for the moments, places, or persons that somehow turn your tongue to stone. Those times when words truly do not possess the power to adequately paint the subject. For me, this was written for an instance when the world was made clear to me for only an instant. When trouble faded into wonder, and I had absolutely no use for the 26 letters I know."

When they're not playing sold out shows across the country, the Phoenix based act are jet setting across the globe, taking their electric live show to sold out audiences and festivals internationally.  In their ten-year tenure as a band, they've sold half a million records and 3 million songs collectively, amassing an incredibly engaged fanbase. Their socials sit at around 800k on Facebook, 113k on Instagram, and with enigmatic band frontman, John O'Callaghan at around 586k followers. 

"Lovely Little Lonely" marks the sixth studio release for the band who celebrated their 10 year aniversary the only way they know how - by throwing their own festival, "8123 Fest". The record is also first that they are releasing entirely independently.

First single from the album, "Bad Behavior" blends infectious guitar with wistful melodies and an energy that is impossible to ignore - a fitting first look into the record and insight into how the Maine has evolved. The track has garnered half a million streams since it's release in January, and is currently creeping up the alternative radio charts and has been added to KXNA, KPOI, KYRK, KNOB, KUCD, KRAB and KDKB with additional spins across the country.  

The band complimented the track with a fitting video, releasing visuals that features live footage from "8123 Fest" and a behind the scenes look into the world that the band has created over the last decade that feels both intimate all inclusive.

From the slow burning "Lonely" to the lovestruck restlessness of "I Only Wanna Talk To You" and the 80's tinged "Lost In Nostalgia", and every moment in between,  Lovely Little Lonely is a stunning achievement from a band who have a clear perception of where they want to go, without forgetting where they are from. 
 
The Maine are hitting the road this April for a massive world headlining tour with support from The Mowglis and Beach Weather, which will bring them all over the States as well as to Singapore, Brazil and the Philippines

Centuries ago, a ship carrying the world’s finest black spiced rum was rumoured to suffer a disastrous fate at the tentacles of the Kraken, a bizarre and fierce sea beast kno…
