The Maine hails from Tempe, AZ and was started in 2007 when the band members were still in High School. Shortly after they started they signed with Fearless Records after the president of Fearless Records had taken note of their first show on Southern California.

In 2015 The Maine (8123 Records) went on a 13 date Tour called The Free For ALL Tour. This was a chance for them to give back to all the fans for supporting The Maine (8123 Records) for so many years. There was no cost to the fans and The Maine (8123 Records) only asked that they help donate to cover the costs of touring.

Singer John O’Callaghan had this to say about why they wanted they came up with this unique tour idea
“Our necessity to push ourselves creatively when it comes to the tour experience and the desire to deliver a unique “thank you” to the profoundly dedicated folks that have been seeing us for almost nine years now both inspired us to construct the Free For All Tour” – Quote courtesy of Tune Core Blog

The Maine (8123 Records) have continued to tour constantly, record new music, and continually connect with as many of their fans as they can. They’re in it for the long haul and don’t plan on quitting anytime soon.
