In February 2003, Norfolk, Virginia introduced the world to the charming quintet collectively known as Mae. Not only was their debut album, Destination: Beautiful an instant success with audiences, but their live show proved their talent moved even past just writing alluring hits. The year after, the band returned with Destination: B-Sides, their first recorded project since the release of Destination: Beautiful. The release featured 10 tracks of new and unreleased songs, live recordings, and acoustic takes on old favorites and gave an inside look at the band's beginnings, as well as signs of what was to come. Now, 10 years later, the album is available for the first time ever on vinyl and features a new track listing that includes two brand new takes on two classic Mae songs, "Skyline Drive" (from Destination: Beautiful) and "Where The Falls Begin" (from The Everglow Special Edition). Recorded during the summer and fall of 2014, these recordings mark the first newly recorded music by all 5 original members of Mae in over 4 years.
