Review: “Black Butterflies and Déjà Vu” by The Maine

The Maine’s upcoming album Lovely, Little, Lonely will be released in about a month, but the group released a new single off of the album. “Black Butterflies and Déjà Vu” is the second single released by The Maine, the first being “Bad Behavior.”

This will be The Maine’s sixth full length album they are going to release. The group has several EPs but keeps up with creating new content and touring. Their last album was released in 2015, American Candy. The Maine is a rock group from Tempe, Arizona. The group has been together for 10 years.

“Black Butterflies and Déjà Vu” has a range of paces throughout the song. The guitars are prominent in this song over “Bad Behavior” which is nice to hear. I really enjoyed the fact that this song has more of a story within the lyrics as well. I like the fact the lyrics for this track were written similar to how John O’ Callaghan would write poetry. He’s a simple type of writer but gives depth and meaning. The two singles make me curious about what else is in store for the album.

I can’t wait for the record Lovely, Little, Lonely on April 7. I’ve been a huge fan of The Maine since their album Can’t Stop Won’t Stop and I’m excited to see what else is in store for the new album. The Maine also is fantastic live. I’ve seen them live four times, and I’m seeing them again in NYC on April 27.

The Maine had the 8123 fest in January, and after the album releases will tour around the world. Tickets and tour information can be found on their website. Also, if you wanted to see the process the band went through for this album, you can watch their docu-series on YouTube. I wrote a blog post about their series that can be found here.

In other news, Pierce The Veil and Sum 41 will be touring together across the United States, and Linkin Park performed “Heavy” featuring Kiiara on “The Late Late Show with James Corden.”

Rock on, stay humble, and be positive!
