You Need To Listen To The Acoustic Rendition Of “blame” By The Maine


As per usual, The Maine has been more than generous to fans, offering amazing collabs, dropping an incredible ninth record, and sharing new acoustic renditions of their singles. After teasing a snippet of the track earlier this week, the group finally shared a stripped-down version of the dance-inducing, pop-laced banger “blame,” resulting in a haunting, heartfelt performance.

Frontman John O’Callaghan’s vocals absolutely shine on this somber rendition, departing from the glitzy disco aesthetics and sounds of its original counterpart. Frankly, be prepared to sob. Listen to The Maine’s acoustic reinterpretation of “blame” below.

In a recent Instagram clip, listeners can see the making of the track as O’Callaghan earnestly strums and sings the track against a black-and-white backdrop. “We both got stories, but they’re not the same,” he vocalizes. 

Currently celebrating 16 years as a band, the quintet is prepping for their Sweet Sixteen Tour, playing tracks from Can’t Stop Won’t Stop, Black & White, Pioneer, Forever Halloween, American Candy, Lovely Little Lonely, You Are OK, XOXO: From Love and Anxiety in Real Time, and The Maine. The band will be joined by Daisy Grenade, flor, and Weathers on the road. 

If that wasn’t exciting enough, the quintet will be supporting the second leg of Fall Out Boy’s So Much For (2our) Dust with Jimmy Eat World in the winter.
