The ‘OR’ Game with… The Maine

When our Brumoters complete interviews with some of the amazing artists around, we like to play a little game called ‘OR!’

The basic rules are to give the artists two separate options and have them choose the one they like the most… For example, Pepsi or Coca Cola!

This particular game of ‘OR’ was completed with The Maine’s bassist Garrett Nickelsen and lead guitarist Jared Monaco!

Don’t give up on The Maine!

Last night, The Maine returned to the UK and impressed their highly dedicated fans at their show at the O2 Academy2 in Birmingham with an incredible performance!

The American band from Arizona came to Birmingham as part of the UK leg of the 8123 tour and two of our Brumoters got the chance to catch up with The Maine’s bassist Garrett Nickelsen and lead guitarist Jared Monaco, the interview for which will be available on October 13th!

The group consisting of Pat Kirch, Kennedy Brock, John O’Callaghan, Jared Monaco and Garrett Nickelsen (Left to Right) entertained all the fans that had packed themselves into the venue, with a range of old and new tracks, including ‘Misery’ and ‘Kiss and Sell.’

But before the lads graced the stage with their amazing performance, Nick Santino (ex-frontman for A Rocket to the Moon) and Lydia wowed the crowd with their support sets.

Although it was his first ever tour in the UK, Nick Santino had no nerves seeming to hold him back as his incredible stage presence held the audience’s attention throughout the entirety of his acoustic performance.

Lydia took the stage next, bringing with them an unbelievable amount of energy that left the crowd wanting more as they made sure to sing the lyrics back to the ecstatic group.

Then came the moment everybody had been waiting for, The Maine finally took to the stage causing the venue to erupt into cheers, obviously excited to see the lads pop across the pond once again as they broke out into a number of old and new tracks.

The lads’ energetic set featured a number of fan favourites and the only time the group slowed down was to interact and chat to their ecstatic and loud fans (though many ‘accent’ issues arose, like when lead singer John O’Callaghan mistook the words “Pretty Good” as “Grand Canyon” when speaking about their home state).

The highly talented band made sure to perform their hearts out and ensured that all those attending the event were thoroughly entertained, which rang true when the lads began to discuss a potential album release next year!

The Maine rounded off their incredible performance with a track from their first studio album in 2008: ‘We’ll All Be’, for which, both Nick Santino and Lydia graced the stage once again to help The Maine out and end the show with a bang!

We definitely recommend going to see The Maine live as they have the talent and an impressive setlist, which should have another few hits joining in as the lads are set to hit the recording studio next month! We have no doubts, that like they did last night, the group will keep you thoroughly entertained and leave you wanting more!
