    It also really sounds like they are moving on from that “sound”, whatever that means. But they said that multiple times. They really feel like they perfected it with LLL and any effort to do it again would be forced.

    Do you have any doubt that they will release something awesome?

    I don't

    I think a new sound is probably best. They caught lightning in a bottle with LLL and to try to do the same thing again wouldn’t have the same magic. Plus the last time they really shifted their sound we were gifted with Pioneer, so I’m excited to see what they come up with next!

    I would love to see them do something that's a lot spacier and drawn out

    Same. Give me an expansion on songs like "Lonely" and "I Only Wanna Talk To You"

    I would certainly like this.

    Well I love the Maine as a band, but I most certainly do not love all of their material. I prefer the poppier stuff of the last two albums much more than the other stuff - which quite frankly - bored me. If they go back to that style I'm sure they will lose me a bit again. If they go in a more atmospheric direction like others have said, I would be all in. Have to wait and see.

    Things have changed.

    It's still going to be poppy. They're working with Squire.

    That’s a shame as I love LLL and it’s the only album from them I dig from start to finish.

    LLL is definitely one of my favourite albums of this decade so far, if not the top.

    I’m excited but also anxious to hear their new sound/album.

    I'm so excited to hear their cover of Transatlanticism by DCFC.

    Can't wait to hear some things off this record. There were a few clips on their instagram a few days ago - I think it was mostly piano. But it sounded great

    I think it'll be a while before we hear anything. In one of their posts, they said that they had just finished writing and started recording last week.

    They were definitely demo’ing some stuff last week which I believe is what was on the instagram. It was really just a simple piano melody, probably will be something totally different when finished

    Oh yea, I saw that. Some vocals too. I figured it was just pre-production or something.

    OMG OMG OMG I can't wait. Is this going to be a "thing" - songs that saved my life? What a great concept.

    It's okay. That's all there was in our hearts.

    Man, they really went all out with this cover. You can even hear the little background ambient guitar parts with headphones in.
