The Maine Announce Nationwide Co-Headlining Tour With Augustana Presented by LG

Sire/Action Theory Records Debut Album 'Black & White' Out Now

BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - March 16, 2011) - Fresh from a sold-out European tour, Sire/Action Theory Records artists The Maine will be hitting the road with Augustana. The nationwide co-headlining run, presented by LG, kicks off May 12th in Dallas, TX and runs through June 18th in their hometown of Phoenix, AZ. Austin Gibbs will support.

The five-piece is touring in support of their major label debut Black & White, which was released on July 13, 2010. The Howard Benson-produced Black & White is the acclaimed follow-up to their 2008 Fearless Records release Can't Stop, Won't Stop. Rolling Stone named The Maine one of "Bamboozle's Five Breakout Bands to Watch," and Alternative Press, which the band has graced the cover of twice, declared them "The new face of American pop."

"We can't wait to be on the road with two incredible acts, Augustana and Austin Gibbs," says The Maine front man John O'Callaghan. "Expect an evening of earnest, high energy rock and roll. We look forward to sharing this experience with everyone!"

Artist Arena ticket presale begins today, Wednesday March 16th. Artist Arena VIP ticket package includes a signed lithograph, early entry and ticket.
