In celebration of their new record "The Wanderer" Canadian Rock Act The Trews stopped by Meet Me For Coffee Podcast to talk about their career and new record.
-The Trews have released their highly anticipated new record Wanderer today via Known Accomplice. Listen Now!
To help celebrate the release, the band has partnered with Ontario brewery Nickel Brook Brewery on a limited edition beer, The Trews Tone Wandering Pilsner. Trews Tone is a crispy pilsner that gives you permission to reach for a few more. A crush 'n' cruise brew that's perfect for people who wanna play. Beers can be purchased at the brewery or on their website.
Wanderer is the band’s blazing seventh studio album and is easily their fiercest and most accomplished yet. Wanderer could not have achieved its acrobatic feats of sonic power had it not been for the lamentable, awful, but also weirdly inspiring and motivational global pandemic, which made touring impossible and writing and recording the only games in town.
Who could have predicted that electrifying recording sessions begun in Nashville in December 2019 with Rich Robinson would be curtailed by a global pandemic, resulting in just three songs being completed? With the borders closed - it led to the guys staying within Canada to once again work with Civilianaires producer Derek Hoffman, yielding three more songs with the fast-rising producer. With the Robinson/Hoffman sessions banked, six additional songs — including the lead single “I Wanna Play” were recorded in Toronto in 2020 with acclaimed producer Eric Ratz.
In the end, those three disparate, COVID-dictated sessions forced the chart-topping, globe-trotting crew, which also lead singer Colin MacDonald, guitarist John-Angus Macdonald, bassist Jack Syperek, drummer Chris Gormley, and keyboardist Jeff Heisholt, to cohere as a band as never before. The results speak for themselves.
The band is also set to do what they do best and get out there for some upcoming live shows at the tail end of this year and even more in early 2022. See below for tour dates with more dates to be announced soon!
