Forever Halloween is the fourth full-length album by American rock band The Maine. The album was released on June 4, 2013 to generally positive reviews from critics. The album has spawned three singles: "Happy", "Love and Drugs", and "These Four Words". The album sold over 10,000 copies in its first week debuting at number 39 on the Billboard 200.[1] The album was released independently in the US in partnership with their management team Eighty One Twenty Three, via Universal Music in Canada, and Rude Records in Europe, UK, Australia and Japan.

The album, produced by Brendan Benson of The Raconteurs, is the band's second consecutive self-funded release following their departure from Warner Bros. Records. "To be seen and treated as an equal by someone you hold in high regard is a gratifying and refreshing feeling" says frontman John O'Callaghan on working with Benson. "[He] opened his studio doors, did that and much more which helped provide the platform to create an album we can now all stand behind."[2]
