Biography

A Band of Brothers!

Mainstreet Exit was formed in August 2006 in Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. Brothers Max and Jude Long asked their buddies Luke Fougere and Mike Hearn to join them on their musical journey. This hard working young band has been featured on Much Music, they were acknowledged by Rob Dyer (Skate4Cancer founder) on MTV Live, Mick Mashbir (Alice Coopers Million Dollar Babies guitarist) sang their praises and to top it off they won Top Unsigned Band in Atlantic Canada in March 2008.

Mainstreet Exit has shared the stage with some of Canada's greats including, Faber Drive, Ten Second Epic, Tupelo Honey, Marianna's Trench, Crush Luther, Bobby Cameron, Paper Lions, Joel Plaskett, and many more Canadian touring bands.

On June 9th Mazda Canada partnered with Universal Records to produce an online video game and asked Mainstreet Exit to submit a song for consideration to be in the game. A short while later the boys were informed that the games creative team picked Mainstreet Exits 'My Favorite Song' as the theme song for the game and for the commercial to advertise the game. (Watch the video ad in our video section, its funny!) The video game ad is now running on MSN featuring one of their songs!.

With an ambitious touring schedule, a high energy stage performance, a sound all their own and a desire to play, these guys are a blast to see and hear.

Their debut CD "The world is yours' was recorded at Denmark Productions in Halifax, NS with Producer/Juno Judge, Dennis Field. Their first single '3:AM' was released world wide on Nexus Radio Europe on July 1st, 2008.

'The world is yours' summer tour took MSE to Quebec and Ontario where they were featured on YouMag TV in Toronto, invited to tour Much Music and sit in on a show (MOD). The boys were offered a reality show spot by Much for 2009.
New Jersey entertainment lawyer to the stars Eugene Foley (40 gold records and 3 grammy's) gave them a 'validation from a pro' plug as 'being there even at their young age'.

My Favorite Song

Written By: Mainstreet Exit

My Favorite Song

Flipping through the photo albums of, just me and you
Tonight, it’s just me and you tonight,

I never want to find you,
When I’m on my knees again,

Don’t turn away,
Leave please don’t stay,
The ceremonies all washed up your face will soon decay,
(And I loved you all along)
I’m not through, I still have thoughts of you,

Build up your walls of lies, so I’ll have something to hide behind,
Tonight, it’s just me and you tonight,

I never want to find you,
When I’m on my knees again,

Don’t turn away,
Leave please don’t stay,
The ceremonies all washed up your face will soon decay,
(And I loved you all along)
I’m not through, I still have thoughts of you,

And I loved you all along,
You always were my favorite song…

Don’t turn away,
Leave please don’t stay,
The ceremonies all washed up your face will soon decay,
(And I loved you all along, you always were my favorite song)
I’m not through, I still have thoughts of you,

The World Is Yours

Written By: Mainstreet Exit

The World Is Yours

You should have smiled when I said it was a virtue,
You should have laughed when I said I wouldn’t hurt you,
Cause I meant all the words that I said,
And this could, (and this could)
Be my last chance to fall ahead, to fall ahead

You’re in your room and I’m out in my car and I’m broken,
And I know all the words all the words all the words that you told him,

We can’t stop running now, it’s only just begun
We have to take our faith put it in one another cause it’s all we got,

Broken smiles, shattered jaws on our victims,
Move ahead get away and forget them,
Because we know everything we want,
And this is me calling you out,
And this is me showing no doubt,
That we’ll get our way in the end,

You’re in your room and I’m out in my car and I’m broken,
And I know all the words all the words all the words that you told him,

We can’t stop running now, it’s only just begun
We have to take our faith put it in one another cause it’s all we got,

THE WORLD IS YOURS

Summer Feelings

Written By: Mainstreet Exit

Summer Feelings

Some are feelings for you, and some are for her
I can’t explain this feeling you don’t know what I’m dealing with
This rose I’ll pledge to you half my love, I won’t hurt you,
Is that good enough for now, is that good enough?

And I’m on the rooftop the neon lights and stars,
Can both only guide me so far,

Do you remember that night I called you?
Tear rolled down my face,
I told you that I missed you and she could never take your place,
Well now that I’m older and all torn up,
I think I should have told her she makes me want to throw up,

And I’m on the rooftop the neon lights and stars,
Can both only guide me so far,

So far, It’s so far…

3: AM

Written By: Mainstreet Exit

3:AM

It’s 3 in the morning I’m all by myself,
She never gave me warning, she put my heart on her shelf
I never wanted you to ask, (I never thought I’d have to tell it)
I never wanted you to ask, (I never thought I’d have to yell it)

She… Was all I ever wanted
Endless acts between the lost and the confused
She… Was all I ever wanted
Finding my thoughts buried beneath all my lies

Rip up those flowers and tear down those letters,
Cause I never meant one word I said,
In this raining weather could I be taught better?
Or am I just left here for dead?

She…Was all I ever wanted
Endless acts between the lost and the confused
She… Was all I ever wanted
Finding my thoughts buried beneath all my lies
