The Trews to play UK dates


Consummate rockers The Trews, one of Canada’s top live acts, are set to fly in to the UK next month to play two prestigious HMV Next Big Thing shows in London and Birmingham prior to select gigs in their own right. Dates are:-

Mon. 6th Feb – LONDON Relentless Garage - HMV Next Big Thing gig with Virginmarys

Tue. 7th Feb – BIRMINGHAM HMV Institute - HMV Next Big Thing gig

Wed. 8th Feb – GLASGOW – Captain’s Rest

Sat. 11th Feb – BRADFORD – Gasworks

Sun. 12th Feb – NEWCASTLE – Cluny 2

 A brand new single, ‘Misery Loves Company’, taken from the bands’ hugely acclaimed, summer-2011-released fourth studio album, ‘Hope And Ruin’, will be released on Bumstead Productions, via itunes etc on February 28th.

 The Trews, who have already notched up 2 gold albums and 12 top 10 rock radio singles (two of them No.1 and one gold) in their native Canada, have already played over 800 live gigs worldwide, including support for the Rolling Stones, Robert Plant, Guns ‘N’ Roses, KISS, Ace Frehley, Nickelback and Status Quo. The Trews, a truly organic, intuitive, roots rock ensemble, comprise lead vocalist Colin MacDonald; his brother, guitarist John- Angus MacDonald; cousin, drummer Sean Dalton, and long-time friend, bassist Jack Syperek.

“Whether turning their hand to Deep Purple-esque retro rock on ‘People Of The Deer’, the elegant Tom Petty pop of ‘I’ll Find Someone Who Will’ or the delightfully laid back ‘Dreaming Man’, there isn’t a flawed track. Indeed, it’s one of those rare albums where every song could easily become a hit single. It’s a rare feat for an album to be so consistently powerful. 9/10” Rich Wilson, Classic Rock Presents AOR, July 2011 issue.

“The Trews are one of Canada’s top rock draws, mixing no-nonsense hard rock with arena anthem appeal. Opener ‘Misery Loves Company’ is haunted by the spirit of Thin Lizzy, ‘People Of The Deer’ channels churning guitar and dual lead licks from the cusp of the 60’s and 70’s, and ‘Stay With Me’ is an obvious single down the line. The title track gives Kings Of Leon a run for their money, suggesting hope aplenty.” Paul Cole, Birmingham Sunday Mercury, May 29th 2011.

“An LP full of well crafted rock and harder-edged pop songs with plenty of melodic hooks from this Canadian four-piece” - Paul Rigby, Hi-Fi World, August 2011 issue.
