The Maine, Arizona’s sensational alternative rock artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Summit Music Hall!
The band was formed in Tempe in 2007 by bassist Garrett Nickelsen, drummer Patrick Kirch, singer John O'Callaghan and guitarists Jared Monaco and Ryan Osterman. The band’s been through a few line up changes over the years and it currently consists of John (lead vocals, piano, and guitar), Jared (lead guitar), Garrett (bass and occasional backing vocals), Patrick (drums and percussion), and Kennedy Brock (rhythm guitar and backing vocals). When on tour the line up also includes Andrew DeStefano (keyboards, rhythm guitar, and occasional backing vocals). While their musical style can be broadly classified as alternative rock, it’s best described as pop punk (a fusion genre that typically combines fast punk rock tempos, power chord changes and loud, distorted electric guitars with pop influenced melodies and lyrical themes). They’ve had a stellar career with 5 studio albums (4 of which were top 10 hits on Billboard’s Alternative chart), 1 live album, 9 music videos, 9 extended plays, and 11 singles. They’ve toured with many renowned acts such as Anberlin, Mayday Parade, Augustana, and Never Shout Never. They won 3 AP Magazine Readers’ Awards (for Album of the Year, Best Song, and Best Live Band) and their latest album (Lovely, Little, Lonely) comes out in April 2017.
Don’t miss your chance to see these artists add a unique touch to pop punk music!
