MARIANAS TRENCH TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM ‘ASTORIA’ ON OCTOBER 23 / FALL U.S. HEADLINE TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED
Sep. 15, 2015
September 15, 2015- Multi-Platinum selling Canadian pop-rockers Marianas Trench are gearing up to release their studio album Astoria October 23rd on Cherrytree / 604 Records/ Interscope. Fans can get an early taste with first single "One Love" which is available now for digital download and streaming via digital subscription services. Listen to “One Love” HERE.
Marianas Trench have also announced they will head out on a headline tour of the U.S. this fall. THE HEY YOU GUYS!! TOUR will kick off November 3rd in Portland, OR. Presale tickets and VIP packages will be available starting on Wednesday, September 16th at 2pm PST. General admission tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday, September 18th at 10am local time. Go to www.marianastrench.net/tour for more info and to purchase tickets.
The Vancouver-based quartet's front man Josh Ramsay describes Astoria as a loose concept record based around the band's love of 1980s fantasy and adventure films. From that starting point, Marianas Trench was able to channel its musical influences from that era into the new material. While on the surface that sounds like a lighthearted exercise in millennial nostalgia, Ramsay says the album was actually created under the most challenging personal circumstances he and the band have experienced to date. "This album is about completely falling to pieces, and picking yourself back up again," he explains. "We took the hardest two years of my life and made it into something beautiful, and our best work to date."
Since their 2006 debut album Fix Me, Marianas Trench have had two Certified Platinum albums in Canada (Masterpiece Theatre and Ever After) and many chart topping hits including "Fallout," "Haven't Had Enough" and "Stutter." In 2013, the band earned a JUNO Award for Group of the Year, adding that accomplishment to their multiple Much Music Video Awards. Ramsay also received a Grammy nomination in 2013 for co-writing and producing Carly Rae Jepsen's breakthrough smash "Call Me Maybe."
