Kennedy Brock of The Maine

The Term “highly anticipated” gets tossed around a lot when it comes to album releases, bringing the validity of the statement into question. But when it is used in reference to Arizona quintet The Maine’s new album, Black & White (in stores July 13th), highly anticipated does not begin to describe the hype surrounding it. The band spent the two years since the release of their debut full-length album, Can’t Stop Won’t Stop, both finding and fine-tuning their style. The outcome is what has proven to be a more organic, rock sound audibly taking inspiration from great rock storytellers like Tom Petty.

The Maine (John O’Callaghan on vocals, Kennedy Brock and Jared Monaco on guitar, Garrett Nickelsen on bass and drummer Pat Kirch) found a perfect match in Grammy-nominated producer Howard Benson who understood their desire to make Black & White a true representation of where they are as a band.

We caught up with Kennedy Brock at the beginning of the band’s first headlining tour; aptly name “An Evening with The Maine.” He talked a little about the new album, growing as a band, and the 90-minute sets promised on this tour.
