A week after announcing plans to release a new album later this spring, the Maine have decided it’s time to head out on their own headlining tour to support the new record. On Monday (Jan. 21), the Arizona-founded band took to social media to unveil plans for a short, springtime trek.
Set to take place in May, “The Maine Are Back on Tour & You Are OK” excursion will find the group performing at venues across the country with stops in Austin, Nashville, Charleston, Richmond, Iowa City, St. Louis, and more. The 15-stop jaunt will begin on May 9 at 191 Toole in Tucson and conclude a couple of weeks later on May 31 at the Launchpad in Albuquerque.
Pennsylvania-founded five-piece Grayscale will open for the Maine throughout the excursion with the exception of four dates.
Pre-sales begin this Wednesday (Jan. 23) while general ticket sales begin this Friday (Jan. 25).
Last week, the act unleashed a brand new song titled “Numb Without You.” The new track is the first single off the Maine’s upcoming seventh studio album, You Are Ok. The record, the group’s follow-up to 2017’s Lovely Little Lonely, is due out March 29 via their 8123 record label. Pre-orders for You Are Ok are available on the band’s website.
The newly added tour dates will take place right after the quintet conclude their time on Taking Back Sunday’s Twenty tour. That tour will find the five-piece joining the Long Island-founded throughout the month of April and well into May. Those tour dates can be found here.
For now, the tour dates for “The Maine Are Back on Tour & You Are OK” excursion can be found below.
