Introducing 2013’s Punk Nation Band Of The Year… The Maine!

"We work with a lot of incredible bands, so deciding on Band Of The Year 2013 was no small feat. As difficult as the decision was, we’re sure we made the right one. Introducing the 2013 Punk Nation Band Of The Year… The Maine! The Arizona band has been together since 2007, and every year they keep getting better. How they do it, we don’t know, but this year was no exception. 2013 held a lot of accomplishments for the band - like the release of their latest full length Forever Halloween. We can’t express how amazing the album is, it’s something you have to hear for yourself. It’s a collection that will be held in high regard for as long music exists. On top of FH, the band also put out an acoustic EP this year, titled Imaginary Numbers that we’re anxious to hear live. And speaking of their live performances, we caught a show this fall on the band’s tour with Anberlin and we can say, with complete and total honesty, The Maine are even better live. We know, we didn’t think it was possible either. The band’s busy tour schedule is another thing we admire about them, we have so much respect for how hard they work. All these factors and more played into the outcome, and that’s why The Maine is our Band Of The Year!!”
