Mae

Boasting a sound that straddled the border of alternative rock and emo-pop, Mae (an acronym for Multisensory Aesthetic Experience) was formed in early 2001 by guitarist Matt Beck, drummer Jacob Marshall, bassist Mark Padgett, keyboardist Rob Sweitzer, and vocalist Dave Elkins. The band initially started out as a project between Elkins and Marshall, students at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA. Recording sessions were booked at Padgett's home studio, and the duo quickly grew into a quintet as the co-founders rubbed shoulders with other local musicians. Nearly eight months later, Mae had cemented its sound and landed local shows with the likes of the Movielife, River City High, and the Exit. In the process, the group also recorded songs for a debut album, Destination: Beautiful, which was released in early 2003 by Tooth & Nail.

While touring to support Destination: Beautiful, guitarist Matt Beck stepped down from his post and was replaced by former Unsung Zeroes guitarist Zach Gehring. Destination: B-Sides surfaced near the end of 2004. Mae's second proper studio album, The Everglow, followed in 2005, and the band's dedicated audience (not to mention its coveted spot on the Warped Tour that summer) helped the album peak at number 51 on the Billboard 2000. Mae joined the Virgin College Mega Tour in early 2006, appearing alongside Over It and Yellowcard in the process, and a bonus edition of The Everglow appeared that April with additional tracks and a bonus DVD. The musicians' contract with Tooth & Nail ran out later that year, and they went on to sign a deal with Capitol, thus making Mae a major-label act.

Singularity was released during the summer 2007 and cracked the Top 40, selling roughly 17,000 copies during its first week. It proved to be Mae's only release for Capitol, however, as the band left the label's roster in 2008 and forged ahead as an independent act. Early the following year, the (m)orning EP became Mae's first independently released disc, although it received a widespread release in September courtesy of Cell Records. They followed up quickly in 2010 with another EP, (a)fternoon. ~ MacKenzie Wilson & Andrew Leahey, Rovi

Got to meet and hang out backstage after a concert with the guys in 2005 at in St. Pete, FL. My 3 friends and I took pictures with them and had a ten minute conversation with Rob Sweitzer about the odd yet awesome slow kung-fu like punching he was doing during the intro for All Deliberate Speed lol The coolest part was that there was literally only like 12 of us back there with them and they actually played an acoustic version of The Everglow live, 5 ft in front of us. I'll never forget!
I'm so lucky I got to see them in concert, I loved them! They're amazing and I'll love their music forever.

I miss these guys! I wish I had a chance to see them in concert before they broke up. I'm still hoping they'll get back together at some point.

I could listen to them all day!
MAE FOREVER MAN!
Mae has some power. Like the feel of this song.
i cant imagine any other band being my favorite.
I have these guys to thank for introducing me to music.
I thought they were taking a break for a while from music. I don't like the last 3 albums as much as the 1st 3, but they're still good musically.
star_elf
Have these guys moved on to other bands? I know they broke up, but are they doing anything in other bands?
they're amazingg
Don't know what I would have done without MAE .....one of the few bands that you can listen to every album all the way through

So glad I got to see them in concert...ev e n if it was for their last show in Virginia.
Not a bad run for something they only considered as a side project.
They have really nice voices. It's so calming.
Mae is soooooooo awesome!

THEY ARE AMAEZING!
Mae is done. The (e)vening EP was their last recording. They will surely be missed. They are incredible song writers and have created some of my favorites for sure.
pszuvela
One of my favorite bands of all-time. Saw them in Seattle at the Showbox (small venue) with Anberlin. Best show ever!
These guys are super fantastic -- they've got such great variety in their music. The lyrics are deep at times too. Awakening, crazy 8's, and the fisherman's song were the best! Their instrumental piece Seasons was fantastic as well. I really hope these guys are together and making music.
Are these guys still together and still creating music? Dying to hear new stuff since their old stuff is so good!

Can someone fix this? M.A.E. is not the same band as Mae. and it keeps popping up in my station... I don't like it.
I've known MAE for YEARS. Since 2002 I believe. Which was still in their Destination: Beautiful days. Sigh. Summertime brought such a nostalgic feeling and it was my first time hearing them. I've been dedicated ever since. Their first two albums are still the best I think. So beautiful I could cry just thinking about it. It's still my dream to create a song with them, but just meeting them would be rewarding enough.

They win the award for "Most Contrived Band Name/Acronym . Ever."
Mae is like my favorite band. I am from Williamsburg and they are from Virginia Beach, so they're kinda like Harmonic Hometown Heroes (: I first heard them in 2004, it was really late and the song "Ocean" came on. Been in love with them ever since. My favorite song is Brink Of Disaster.. <3333
met them in SLC back in 2003. Totally legit, chill guys. Amazing band. Been listening ever since. Highlight was a little acoustic show in a local record store in St. George, UT; the band came out to play at 2PM expecting to play to a small group of whoever was at the store at the time, only to be greeted by ~200 cheering fans jam packed into the little store.

i got to see them live for the first time on their farwell tour in a small venue here in Portland, Oregon. The band really was letting go, amazing for sure. After the show I talked to Dave for a while, he defiantly walks the walk not just all talk. great guy. Im looking forward to what he does next with his new production company.
I saw them and got to talk to the guys for like 30 minutes. They are so nice and def in my top 10 favorite bands. Unfortunatel y I missed the Farewell tour b/c of my a**hole ex :(
drummer0457
my brother got me into these guys about a year ago, and now they're my favorite band :D

aaronbainbox
I don't know them personally, but they are brilliant musicians and great showmen.
andyc812
I Love Mae, not only are they great musicians, they are also great guys!
so good. they're just so good.
why must all the good bands be so... so.... disbanded. I wish I could have seen them in concert before they split.
Un 4 chewn nut lee, I was unable to see you guys on your farewell tour. I guess I will have to wait for your next farewell tour to see you play live again.
babybop728
Love this guy's voice!

First Copeland now Mae! All these amazing bands splitting up! But we should all go on Mae's farewell tour.
myerstudent2
Hope they don't break up. I just recently discovered Mae but I love it!
xoliltootsie p o p 2 1 6
Don't break up...
):

The band is sadly splitting up after their last tour, "Goodbye, Goodnight".
They are my (almost) favorite band.
I would really like for them to come out with some new music. They are so good
Is that whatismae? site free????
cheyenne_can t u
Mae is a good band, I especially like the fact most or if not all their songs on Destination: B e a u t i f u l and The Everglow are all good songs to listen to.
adammohr
