Biography
Multi-Platinum selling progressive pop band Marianas Trench from Canada have announced a headlining tour in Europe, which kicks off on May 1st in Bristol, UK at The Fleece. Go to www.marianastrench.net for more info and to purchase tickets.
 
The 17-date tour will showcase new material from their latest released fourth studio album Astoria which echoes one part 1980’s fantasy adventure film and one part classic Marianas Trench. It honours classic coming of age stories, and reflects on frontman Josh Ramsay’s own personal journey that took him from the highest high to the darkest point in his life and career. "This album is about completely falling to pieces, and picking yourself back up again," Josh Ramsay, lead singer explains. "We took the hardest two years of my life and made it into something beautiful, and our best work to date."

The new video for the single “Who Do You Love” can be viewed here. The video is a “Pay It Forward” gesture inspiring people to go out and do some good, make the world a better place, even if just for a moment.  Instead of making a traditional music video, the guys used the production funds to make a difference. From thoughtful yet simple gestures to weightier actions, they shared the funds in ways that will make people smile and feel good.  The scenes play silently under the song, no dialog.  Scenarios range from the guys simply sharing funds in situational one-on- ones to more elaborate pay-it-forward scenarios that benefit groups of people. Gifts were given on visits to animal shelters and hospitals and comfort food and umbrellas handed out on a rainy day.  The scenarios were pre-arranged but the reactions weren’t. It was honest and authentic. The video ends with a subtle call to action Who Do You Love?

Excited to be returning to Europe, Marianas Trench declare, “EUROPE! Guess who’s coming back this May? It’s us. Returning to your glorious continent on The Final Countdown tour, we’re back at full strength and ready to finish what we started, and then some. New dates, makeup dates, new cities, old cities - stoking! Can’t wait to see everyone soon. Bring your squirrelin’ pail cuz this is gonna get furry!”
