Marianas Trench

Elijah Woods X Jamie Fine

Today,multi-double platinum  selling, progressive  pop band, Marianas Trench announced their Suspending Gravity Canadian tour which kicks off in Windsor, Ontario on March 6,2019 at Caesars Windsor Hotel& Casino and wraps on March 29, 2019at the Orpheumin Vancouver, British Columbia.

The15-datetour will be held at venues that will give the fans more of an up-close-and personal live  experience, and feature the  powerhouse  Vancouver  quartet’s signature high-energy performance, while  showcasing material  from  their forth coming studio album “Phantoms” in addition to hits from their previous double platinum and gold-selling albums.

“After months of hibernating in the studio, it's time to get back on stage in front of our fans and share some new music with the world. We couldn’t be more excited. Time to dust off the shiny pants and stretch out the glutes, the Trench is back, “said lead guitarist Matt Webb.

Last week, the band released their latest single “I Knew You When” (604 Records), an upfront take on moving on from a former relationship and the lingering memories that remain. “I Knew You When” is the perfect combination of fresh pop-rock beats that blend seamlessly with lead singer, Josh Ramsay’s incredible vocals.

“I often find pop dance tracks don't really have much lyrical substance. To quote Dave Grohl, "It's  catchy  and  fun  to  dance  to,  but  if  your  favorite  song  is  about  your  butt,  you  have  a problem."  I  wanted  to  make  a  fun  pop  dance  track  that  actually  meant  something  to  me, personally ,”added Ramsay.

“This is about long term, messy, real life love. Love with consequence. Not about drunken lust, or doing shots in a bar, or "living life for just tonight," but the kind of real-life relationship that takes  a  decade  to  build,  through  ups  and  downs.  If I’ve learned one  thing  in  my  life  as  a performer it's this; if you're going to sing a song every night for the rest of your career, you better mean it -and I do.

“Joining Marianas Trench on tour is platinum-certified, break out Canadian duo Elijah Woods x Jamie Fine.  EWxJF  is  a  delicate  marriage  of  exploratory  musical  styles  and  masterful emotional play. The duo purposefully breaches the boundaries of pop music touching on many influences including Hip-Hop and R&B that consistently shake up their sound.
