From a little EP in 2007 to traveling the world in 2012, The Maine are in the middle of a very busy year. As the fourth stop on the North American leg of their “Pioneer World Tour”, The Maine arrived at Vinyl Music Hall to share their adventure with their Pensacola, Florida fans.

Pocketing a tour with Taking Back Sunday and New Found Glory earlier this year, The Maine (John O’ Callaghan (vocals), Kennedy Brock (guitar), Jared Monaco (guitar) Garrett Nickelsen (bass) and Pat Kirch (drums) were one month away from their slot on The Bamboozle Festival and five years removed from the Fearless Records EP “The Way We Talk” that started it all.

From the looks of the band, the fans, and the night they shared, it doesn’t look like the Tempe, Arizona band will slow down their rock n’ rollercoaster anytime soon.
