We’re in the middle of #MaeWeek (May 19-23), and MAE is celebrating the 10th anniversary of their debut album DESTINATION: BEAUTIFUL and the compilation, DESTINATION: B-SIDES with the super-limited Spartan Records release of the alum as a “unique vinyl variant” limited to just 100 copies. Going beyond just #MaeWeek, the band has scheduled an intimate one-time-only online performance at StageIt.com for June 7th. The show will feature the band performing from their studio and interacting with fans, all streaming live online and on mobile devices for ticket-holders.
Spartan Records has also announced plans to release Destination: B-Sides on limited edition vinyl record for the first time in the near future.
The album will be available for pre-order on an exclusive vinyl variant during the band’s StageIt performance and a portion of the proceeds raised from the performance will go towards re-recording of additional tracks, which will be included on the first ever vinyl pressing of the album.
Formed in 2001, Mae released four highly revered full-length albums and three EPs via Tooth & Nail and Capitol Records, which combined sold over half a million copies. During their tenure the band toured the world with bands like Foo Fighters, Weezer, The Fray, OK GO, MuteMath, Circa Survive, Jack’s Mannequin among many others. As part of a year-long charity campaign in 2009, the band partnered with Habitat For Humanity, Donors Choose, and Destination Imagination and raised over $80,000 for those in need. After a few years on hiatus, Mae returned to the stage in February 2013 to commemorate the ten year anniversary of Destination: Beautiful. Now a year later, the band returns for a special StageIt show in honor of Destination: B-Sides for their fans around the world to view.
