The Maine Handed Lifetime Ban From Twitter

In a turn of events that nobody thought would happen, The Maine have been handed a lifetime ban from the social media website for probably a stupid reason.

The judgement has come because the band input their birthday as the date the band formed, making them only 11 years old.

In terms of the service of the social media website, you have to be at least 13 years old in order to have an account.

So, in plain terms, they were honest… and they got banned.

But don’t worry, Dashboard Confessional were on hand to help out!

Music, in general, coming out of Australia is in safe hands at the moment. You have Tonight Alive followed by Stand Atlantic and now Between You & Me, who have announced the details of their debut record.

Here’s what it looks like.
