Multiplatinum progressive pop band Marianas Trench recently released their fifth-studio album Phantoms out today via 604 Records. Their rabid fans got a preview ofPhantoms this past autumn with the bouncy first single “I Knew You When,” currently climbing the Billboard Canadian Hot AC chart and the CHR Top 40 charts. The song’s high energy is indicative of the album, although lyrically it reflects Phantoms‘ overall theme of coping with memories of past relationships. “I wanted to set an album from the perspective of someone descending into madness as he inhabits a house haunted by the ghost of his former love. I looked to Edgar Allan Poe for inspiration.” – Josh Ramsay (lead singer)
With a slew of Top 10 radio hits to its credit such as “Who Do You Love,” “Rhythm of Your Heart,” “Fallout,” and “Haven’t Had Enough,” Marianas Trench is constantly pushing the boundaries of pop and translating that into their explosive live shows. Along with double platinum and gold digital singles, the band has also garnered multiple SOCAN and MMVA Awards, number 1 videos on MuchMusic, JUNO Award nominations and won the 2013 JUNO Award for Group of the Year. Ramsay also received a GRAMMY nomination in 2013 for co-writing and producing Carly Rae Jepsen’s international breakthrough smash and certified U.S. diamond selling single “Call Me Maybe.”
The band recently announced their 2019 Suspending Gravity U.S. tour and tickets are on sale now at www.marianastrench.net.
The 24-date tour 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 new album Phantoms in addition to hits from their previous double platinum and gold-selling albums.
