The Maine and Never Shout Never are currently out on tour and are encouraging fans to help give back at their shows. The bands have launched a food drive on their tour.
"This is the time of year where we all start to think more about giving, and those who may be less fortunate," both bands said in a statement posted on their websites about The Harmony Food Drive. "Both Never Shout Never and The Maine are committed to helping others, not just during the holiday season, but throughout the year. The goal is to donate at least 6,000 pounds of food to various food banks by the end of the tour."
Both bands are asking that each fan attending the show bring at least one non-perishable canned item with them. Each venue will have a designated area where the cans can be dropped off. After the show, the canned goods will be delivered to a local food bank. If at least 200 pounds of food is donated at each show, the goal of collecting 6,000 pounds total can be met. Never Shout Never and The Maine will each release three live tracks in December as a reward for their fans' generosity.
Never Shout Never, fronted by 19-year-old Christofer Drew, are touring in support of their new album, Harmony, which was released by Loveway/Sire Records on August 24th. The Maine are supporting their current album Black & White, which was released by Warner Bros. Records on July 13th.
