THE MAINE Again Invades the Philippines

“I see you winding and grinding up on that pole...”, “oh she makes me feel like shit..because she’s everything I ask for”… Who could ever forget those lines from the rocking and dumbfounding band?

The album hugely features “Don’t Give up on Us”, “My Heroine”, and their lead single “Some Days”. And as they promise, the music video of their new song “Misery” has released.
