TORONTO, ON – July 20, 2018 – The Trews are gearing up to release their sixth full-length studio album Civilianaires on September 14 via Cadence Recordings, and today they’re giving fans another taste with the third track off the album, “Bar Star“. Listen here.
On the track, Lead singer Colin MacDonald says ” The lyrics are ultimately about hope and love and finding meaning and connection in the darkest of times. It’s important to come together and share our experiences, even if it’s for a couple of hours at the pub down the street.”
Civilianaires is the band’s most fearless record yet with personal and political lyrics driven by a refreshing new sound. It features production credits from up and comer Derek Hoffman (The Elwins, Seaway) and the legendary Bob Rock. The Trews also worked alongside Max Kerman from Arkells, who co-wrote and co-produced their second single “Vintage Love“, along with a co-write with Serena Ryder on the title track.
The band are once again teaming up with PledgeMusic for a pre-sale launch of the album. Fans can pre-order the album in multiple formats – vinyl, cd, digital – and bundle it with any number of exclusive items from Civilianaires cassettes to access into the official release show in Hamilton, Ontario – available only through PledgeMusic.
