The Canadian pop-rock group Marianas Trench plays the Barrie Molson Centre March 8. The multi-double platinum selling, progressive pop band is ‘Suspending Gravity’ across Canada. Elijah Woods and Jamie Fine support the Barrie date.
The show will feature the Vancouver quartet’s songs from their upcoming studio album “Phantoms” in addition to hits from their previous double platinum and gold-selling albums such as “All to Myself,” “Haven’t Had Enough,” “Cross My Heart,” and “Desperate Measures.”
Their latest single “I Knew You When” is an up-front take on moving on from a former relationship and the lingering memories that remain. It features fresh pop-rock beats and lead singer Josh Ramsay’s vocals.
“I wanted to make a fun pop dance track that actually meant something to me, personally,” said Ramsay. “This is about long term, messy, real-life love. Love with consequence. The kind of real-life relationship that takes a decade to build, through ups and downs.
“If I’ve learned one thing in my life as a performer it’s this; if you’re going to sing a song every night for the rest of your career, you better mean it – and I do.”
Since their 2006 debut, Fix Me, Marianas Trench has had two certified, double platinum-selling records, two certified gold-selling albums with chart-topping hits including ‘Rhythm Of Your Heart,’ ‘Haven’t Had Enough,’ and ‘Who Do You Love’. The band has also garnered multiple SOCAN and MMVA Awards, 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 US diamond selling single “Call Me Maybe.”
