The Maine shared on social media, “There is so much we could say but to keep it short… 5 friends from Arizona started a band 14 years ago and have been able to make the music they love and travel the world because of YOU. We put everything into this new album that you can call “XOXO”. It's not ours anymore, it belongs to each and every one of you. We can't thank you enough and without further ado, we are proud to present our 8th studio album streaming worldwide NOW!”
- The new album showcases their knack for combining pop and rock without losing any danceability. The Maine's roots in DIY remain strong on this record as the band effortlessly boasts their homemade anthemic and revelatory lyrics on each track. Their songwriting on this collection includes their consistently thoughtful lyrics touching on the topics of love and mental health while holding onto their positive radio friendly sound.
John O'Callaghan said “I suppose it's mostly for you to decide what 'XOXO' means. But to me, it's the highest of highs, and the lowest of lows, and every last little feeling in between. So without dirtying it all up with words, please sit back and with an open head and heart and allow us to bring you our 8th studio album, XOXO FROM LOVE & ANXIETY IN REAL TIME.”
