"If you are a fan of something, you shouldn’t have to go broke supporting it."
The Maine have posted a blog on Medium discussing their feelings towards bands charging for meet and greets.
"Our fans carry us from one album to the next. It’s surprisingly simple. We have built a relationship with our fans that has not only helped sustain our career but has been crucial in getting to the next level. It all stems from the idea that if you are a fan of something, you shouldn’t have to go broke supporting it."
"There is nothing wrong with being in a band and wanting to make money at the same time. What really matters to us is the real, tangible side of things."
"People shouldn’t have to spend a ton of extra money on tickets, or to meet a human being."
"If you’re in a band and want to know more about how we pulled this off, you can talk to us in person if you want. We’ll be the five guys standing outside after our next show, for free."
The band's latest album 'Lovely Little Lonely' is out now via 8123.
