The Maine: " Girls Do What They Want " Video Premier

The Maine premieres their new performance based music video for "Girls Do What They Want" today on Myspace. The video is a candid look into the band's daily life, from the van, to the shows, to hanging out with the fans afterwards.

Director Dan Fussellman of Motion Army says, "I wanted to tell a story out of their travel experiences from head-banging thirteen hour van rides, to pre-show chants. They have such a great time no matter what they're doing and I really felt that should be a big part of the video." The video was filmed on the road during part of their tour with All Time Low and part of their tour with We The Kings.
"We wanted to include the fans in this video, because they're a part of being on the road and they make it all worth it," says vocalist John O'Callaghan. They can be seen singing along to every song, signing the infamous tour van, and just being a part of everyday life on the road. "It's surreal to see 1000 people singing along to every word but it's reassuring to know that all of our hard work is paying off."

This video is a glimpse into The Maine's winter tours with many more tours to come. The band has already hit the road in 2009 on a nationwide tour with We The Kings and will be co-headlining this year's Alternative Press Tour. This tour will make a stop at SXSW where The Maine will be playing the AP Showcase as well as headlining the Warped Tour Latin America Showcase. Throughout the Alternative Press Tour they will also be the featured band with Denny's All Nighters. They can be seen on the cover of the latest edition of Alternative Press magazine.
