The Maine are encouraging fans to help the people affected by the California wildfires.
The band compiled a list of ways they can help. Check out what you can do below.
“Our thoughts are with all of those affected by the California wildfires right now,” the Maine wrote earlier on Twitter.
The band shared a link to a page on the 8123 website, which lists fundraising efforts as well as volunteer opportunities.
“There are many displaced families who have lost everything to fire. We’re calling on the 8123 Family to help,” they wrote. “No donation is too small to help make a difference.”

As the band states, there are many ways to help, either donating money or your time. You can help fundraising efforts from animal and people non-profits, or purchase items off certain Amazon wishlists.
Those who live in California and aren’t affected by the fires, can also check different volunteer opportunities or open up their homes on Airbnb.
You can check all the ways to help on the 8123 website.
The Maine’s 8123 Fest is just over two months away, and we couldn’t be more stoked.
The band hinted at the second edition of the festival at the start of the year and confirmed it this summer. We know the event takes place over three days—January 18, 19 and 20, 2019—in Phoenix, Arizona. However, they’ve been pretty mum on the lineup until recently.
On Jan. 18, the Maine will perform a set curated by fans at the Van Buren. On Jan. 19, the official 8123 Fest kicks off at Civic Space Park. The Maine will celebrate Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop’s 10-year anniversary by performing it in its entirety along with other tracks from their discography. There will also be a Make America Emo Again after party hosted at the Van Buren on Jan. 19.
The band have been teasing the lineup by releasing one band at a time, and now we know the next band added to the lineup. We The Kings, This Century, Mayday Parade, Teenage Wrist and Real Friends will be joining the Maine for the festival.
Plus, This Century are performing at a special side show Jan. 20 where they will play Sound Of Fire in its entirety along with other tracks from their catalog.
The festival will be held Jan. 18–20 in Phoenix, Arizona, and tickets are available now.
