The Trews, featuring (clockwise from top left) guitarist John-Angus MacDonald, drummer Sean Dalton, lead singer Colin MacDonald, and bassist Jack Syperek, are coming back to Truro with a May 24 performance at Champions Bar & Grill.
The Trews, who just released a self-titled album, will perform at Champions Bar & Grill on Robie Street at 10 p.m. on May 24. There are a limited number of advance tickets at $30, regular advance at $35 and $40 at the door. Tickets are on sale beginning April 29 at Champions and MacQuarries Pharmasave on the Esplanade. Ticketpro outlets and online (ticketpro.ca) will have tickets available as of May 1.
Since the release of their highly celebrated debut House of Ill Fame in 2003, The Trews have gained a reputation as one of Canada's most electrifying live rock bands. Ten years, five studio albums and thousands of gigs in, the East Coast-bred rockers are still going strong and are as willing as ever to break the mold.
“This album is our thank you letter to our fans,” said Colin MacDonald, lead vocalist and guitarist. “We felt that we owed them a great record because without them we wouldn’t be able to do what we love to do, make music. We worked really hard on this new collection of songs and we are so proud of what we’ve built.”
The Trews’ lead single ‘What’s Fair Is Fair’, nabbed the number one ‘Most Added’ song at Canadian Active Rock radio the week of Feb. 24, and is currently number three on the Canadian rock charts, and climbing. The new The Trews album is now available in stores and via iTunes.ca.
The self-titled album not only boasts a guest spot by Canadian songstress Serena Ryder, but contributions from die-hard Trews fans on some tracks; just one of the perks available to fans who contributed to The Trews’ PledgeMusic campaign. In addition to allowing loyal supporters unparalleled access to the band during the recording process and partially funding the record, the PledgeMusic campaign gave The Trews an opportunity to raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis Canada in honour of a friend who passed away from CF last year, who inspired the song ’65 Roses.’
