As we anxiously await the Maine’s Modern Nostalgia tour, the band took to YouTube to answer some fan questions about the tour, American Candy, Lovely Little Lonely, the color schemes—and even confirming that we’ll be getting to hear some of those previously unreleased and unfinished tracks sometime soon.

“We have songs from both records, actually from all the records,” drummer Pat Kirch explains. “Not all of them are recorded. Some of them are just bits and pieces, but we’re actually going to get together after the Modern Nostalgia tour and start piecing through all those ideas. Either turn it into a record or some EPs. We’re definitely going to piece them together.”
Of course, this isn’t the first time we heard that they’d be aiming to release some our favorite songs that they hadn’t previously put on an album, and Twitter was (and let's be real, still is) all about it.

They talk more about splitting the set between the two records, picking a record they'd most like to recreate acoustically and explain which album best represents the Maine and where they're at now.
Not to mention, they explain that there are many reasons fans should be excited for the Modern Nostalgia tour. Frontman John O'Callaghan said the band will be giving out free things… Joking, of course. But that’s alright. We’ll still be there.
