The Maine

On the Fence With Jared Monaco of The Maine

Jared Monaco of The Maine shared an excerpt from the band’s upcoming book on Medium:

I’m not sure I’ll ever forget the day I walked into our studio knowing I was about to quit The Maine. Thinking back on it now, it was like a tense scene in a movie: We were early on in the writing for You Are OK. I was sitting in a chair in the control room, guitar in hand. John’s demos were playing through the speakers, and I was trying to think of what I could do to add to the song — but the only thing going through my head was static.
