Andy Caldwell Premieres New Video For "Hold The Line"

The Trews To Release Self-Titled Album On April 22

 

“The songs all creep up on you, rather than being over-the-top. What they will ensure is that you’ll want to go
back and check them out again and again.”
- Malcolm Dome, Classic Rock Magazine

"The Trews' strength is in the hooky rock that dominates the set list... They nimbly balance between commercial pop and tougher rock without falling into either camp.”
- Hal Horowitz, All Music

Since the release of their highly celebrated debut House of Ill Fame (2003), The Trews have gained a reputation as one of Canada's most electrifying live Rock bands. Ten years, five studio albums and thousands of gigs in, the Ontario-based rockers are still going strong and are as willing as ever to break the mold.

Passenger Announces New Album ‘Whispers’ Out June 10

Mike Rosenberg, aka Passenger, has announced that his new album, Whispers, will be released on June 10, 2014. The lead single in North America, “Scare Away The Dark,” will be available on iTunes and all DSPs on April 1 (NA only). Passenger will appear on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon this Friday, March 28, where he’ll perform “Scare Away The Dark” for the first time on national television.

Recorded in Sydney and co-produced by Chris Vallejo, Whispers is comprised of 11 tracks that tell tales – some real, some imagined – of love, death, growing up and getting old. A master of story telling, Passenger yet again strikes the perfect balance between the heartbreaking and the humorous, all wrapped in beautiful instrumentation, creating a sumptuous, symphonic sound.

“This is easily the most ‘up’ album I’ve ever made,” explains Passenger. “It’s quite cinematic. There are lots of big stories and big ideas. There are also some somber moments about loneliness and death but, hey, it wouldn’t be a Passenger album without those. Mostly though, it’s a really positive album.”

The band will debut many of these new songs next month in Austin during SXSW (showcases tba).

Ulysses was produced by Nathan Sabatino (Dr. Dog, Neko Case, Giant Stand) at Vancouver’s iconic Greenhouse Studios.
