The Maine’s ‘Can’t Stop Won’t Stop’ Gets A 15th Anniversary Vinyl Reissue

Craft Recordings is celebrating the 15th anniversary of The Maine’s debut album, Can’t Stop Won’t Stop, with a vinyl reissue and a variety of color variants. Set for release on November 17th, 2023, the 2008 album features the singles “Into Your Arms,” “Everything I Ask For”, and “Girls Do What They Want.”

In addition to the classic black wax pressing, fans can also find Can’t Stop Won’t Stop in limited-edition colorways, including Silver and Gold Marble (via, Transparent Black and Yellow Splatter (available exclusively via Revolver), and Lemon Yellow (at select indie record stores).

Hailing from Tempe, AZ, The Maine was formed in early 2007 by high school students Garrett Nickelsen (bass), Pat Kirch (drums) and John O’Callaghan (vocals), with Jared Monaco (lead guitar) and Kennedy Brock (rhythm guitar) rounding out their long-running lineup several months later.

In 2008, The Maine entered the studio with producer Matt Squire (Ariana Grande, Panic! at the Disco, Taking Back Sunday) to record the 12-track Can’t Stop Won’t Stop. Can’t Stop Won’t Stop was well received by fans, debuting at No.40 on the Billboard 200, breaking the Top 5 of Billboard’s Independent Albums chart and selling 12,000 copies in its first week.

The band also went on the 2008 Warped Tour, as well as having supporting slots with acts like Good Charlotte and Boys Like Girls. Over the following months, The Maine’s profile continued to rise, as they co-headlined the Alternative Press Tour and joined the Bamboozle Festival. The following summer, as The Maine embarked on the 2009 Warped Tour, they reissued a deluxe edition of Can’t Stop Won’t Stop. Today, the album has sold over 100,000 copies and remains one of their most popular titles.

The band has gone on to release a total of nine studio albums, including Black & White (2010), 2013’s Forever Halloween, and 2019’s You Are OK, which topped Billboard’s Indie chart. This past August, The Maine released their self-titled album, while next month, they’ll embark on an extensive North American tour, with shows running through March 2024.
