The Maine deliver with infectious single "Same Suit, Different Tie" [Premiere]


If you’re reading this right now it’s probably because you felt euphoria and giddiness when you saw The Maine mentioned in the title of this post. You were taken back to summer nights some years ago dancing to some of your favorite tracks like “You Left Me” or “I Must Be Dreaming” from their debut album Can’t Stop Won’t Stop, released in 2008. A younger version of your self rejoiced with triumph and enthusiasm at the possibility of new material from the Maine. Well with great excitement we are happy to announce that on Tuesday March 31st, they will release their fifth studio album, American Candy via 8123. Last week the group released their first single “English Girls,” that is insanely catchy and a refreshing reminder of the songs we held so dear. EARMILK has the pleasure to premiere the next single off the forthcoming record titled “Same Suit, Different Tie.” The single is appropriately titled as they speak on the evolution of their music while still holding that sound at their core that we all gravitated towards. The single is an upbeat alternative record with similarities to indie alternative group Walk The Moon. This single far exceed our expectations and is a hopeful look into a promising new direction. In celebration of the albums release the group will be going on a headlining U.S tour with support from Real Friends, Knuckle Puck, and The Technicolors. Listen to the single below, check out their tour dates and be sure to grab the album when it is released March 31st.

  • I love this song and I love American Candy as a whole, though it definitely had some tough competition after Pioneer and Forever Halloween. I think it's great, and I look forward to what the band brings to the table next!

  • Love the feel of this song. American Candy is somewhat of a change, following Forever Halloween and Pioneer, but it's "typical" The Maine in its own way. Excited to see whether new fans will catch on because this is definitely a dealbreaker. As for the old fans, we know The Maine never disappoints and this songs definitely proves that!!

  • I honestly wasn't sure how I felt about this album when I heard the preview, but after hearing the full thing I have to say it's great. There's a cohesive flow, an overall theme, and great lyrics like those in Same Suit, Different Tie. This just made me 100% certain that I should road trip to their show this summer!

  • It's so different yet still has the same 'maine' vibe going and I love it!! How they can grow so much and still produce awesome music amazes me!

  • This album is changing the game for this band. This song is a breakout song for them and shows the maturity that they have gained over the last seven years. UNREAL.

  • This song is just so damn good. I am continuously amazed with how this band continues to grow and evolve. So many bands in their scene would have fizzed out to nothing or settled on reproducing their most famous record time and time again without much thought. The Maine are so much different than that. They are uncompromising when it comes to the music that they want to make and in a world where the biggest concern is creating the hot track instead of building artistry, it is refreshing to see a band take such pride in their craft.

  • The Maine just manage to get better every time they release an album. Each album has a completely different sound from the last yet it still has that same distinct 'The Maine' feeling. American Candy is so positive and is definitely the album to listen to in summer.

  • This song is great; easily one of my favorites from the album. It's so hard to choose a favorite. The Maine did a great job with this 5th album, so not disappointed at all. I've been listening to American Candy nonstop and it just amazes me that The Maine keeps on stepping it up with every album release.
