Sire/Action Theory Records artists The Maine will release an iTunes-exclusive LP entitled In Darkness and In Light on December 29th, 2010. The LP features the short film In Darkness and In Light, which was created and scored by The Maine. The LP also includes an 8-song EP with B-sides, acoustic tracks, and the score from the film, as well as 150 never-before-seen photos and a video documenting the making of the In Darkness and In Light film and score. The LP is currently available for pre-order on iTunes at this location.
The 17-minute short film draws upon many of the same themes that are prevalent in The Maine's full-length Black & White. "We wanted to express our creativity through a medium other than just music. This is a risk we wanted to take to see just how far we could take things without jeopardizing our integrity as musicians," said frontman John O'Callaghan. "This phase in our bands' career represents metamorphosis. We are striving to take every aspect of The Maine to the furthest boundary in hopes to solidify our vision. My hope is that you come along for the ride, and embark on the next chapter with us."
The Phoenix five-piece released their major-label debut Black & White on July 13th, 2010. The Howard Benson-produced album is The Maine's acclaimed follow-up to their 2008 Fearless Records release Can't Stop, Won't Stop.
The Maine have been writing, recording, and touring nonstop since they were barely out of high school. Their songs have garnered a collective 77 million plays on MySpace and they have sold 156k albums, 768k digital singles and racked up 2 million views on YouTube. They recently completed a nationwide tour with Never Shout Never, which followed their first headlining tour this summer, entitled An Evening With The Maine, presented by Alternative Press magazine.
