The Maine
The Maine
Despite sharing their name with a northeastern state, the Maine formed in 2007 in Tempe, AZ, a collegiate suburb of Phoenix. Most of the bandmembers -- singer John O'Callaghan, guitarists Kennedy Brock and Jared Monaco, bassist Garrett Nickelsen, and drummer Pat Kirch -- were in high school at the time, and the guys wasted little time turning their '90s radio rock band influences into a familiar, infectious pop-punk sound. The Maine signed to Fearless Records and released a five-song concept EP, The Way We Talk, in 2007. After performing on the Vans Warped Tour one year later, the group issued a full-length debut album, Can't Stop Won't Stop, which was produced by emo-pop veteran Matt Squire. The record peaked at number 40 on the Billboard charts and caught the ear of Warner Bros. Records, who signed the Maine to a major-label contract in 2009. After releasing a deluxe version of Can't Stop Won't Stop later that year, the group returned to the studio, eventually emerging in 2010 with the sophomore album Black & White.

DREAMERS(members of Motive) is a unique brand of grunge that is nostalgic for a space somewhere between art-school eccentric and the late 1970s punk scene.

Prepare to embark on a journey with DREAMERS, with their unique brand of grunge that is nostalgic for a space somewhere between art-school eccentric and the late 1970s punk scene. Drawing inspiration from the likes of John Lennon and David Lynch, DREAMERS are ready to send their kaleidoscopic sound out into the universe. Their colorfully passionate music tugs at heartstrings and will have you dancing around the room all in one fell swoop, with their debut release EP.

Currently wandering amidst the streets of Brooklyn, DREAMERS is comprised of Nick Wold (vocals, guitar), Chris Bagamery (drums, backup vocals), and Nelson (bass, backup vocals). Having arisen in Seattle and Maryland, they each found a contemplative solace in music, and first met in another life as part of four-piece band, Motive. After catching the attention of the likes of MTV2 and New York Times as well as opening slots for the likes of The Vaccines and Bear Hands,Motive eventually parted ways only to reform in this current life as a three-piece outfit, which would become DREAMERS.

DREAMERS' recently released EP, is a psychedelic collection of indie rock tunes that journeys through an array of experiences culminating in the transcendental "This Album Doesn't Exist". The first single, "Wolves", is a more pensive track from the release, and an apt introduction to the band. It speaks of the influence other people can have on us, whether good or bad, and showcases the band's expressive songwriting. "It's a tale about how other people can drag you down, drag you up, or generally affect you, especially if you pay a lot of attention to them," explains Wold.

The band follow with second single, "Waste My Night" - a feel-good nostalgic tale about youthful optimism. The infectious guitar riffs and hypnotic bass is DREAMERS' calls to arms - urging listeners to embrace their carefree side as frontman Wold croons "Let our worries fade, summer moon is here to stay, suddenly I'm not afraid; darling, forget about your sea of troubles."

With each track a mystifying journey and tale in itself, DREAMERS are ultimately here for one purpose - to help you follow your dream, whatever it may be.
