Canadian rockers Marianas Trench stop at Caesars Windsor on their “Last Crusade” tour With Very Special Guest Shawn HookBook A Room
For immediate release: August 31, 2016
Windsor, ON – Multi-Platinum selling progressive pop band Marianas Trench brings their headlining tour to The Colosseum stage for an ALL AGES show on Thursday November 17 at 8pm.
The 15-date tour will showcase new material from their latest released fourth studio album Astoria (604 Records/Sony) which echoes one part 1980’s fantasy adventure film and one part classic Marianas Trench. It honours classic coming of age stories, and reflects on frontman Josh Ramsay’s own personal journey that took him from the highest high to the darkest point in his life and career. "This album is about completely falling to pieces, and picking yourself back up again," Josh explains. "We took the hardest two years of my life and made it into something beautiful, and our best work to date."
Excited to be returning home to Canada, the Vancouver-based four-piece announces, "Grab your treasure map and your compass cuz we're going on an adventure! We can't wait for our coast to coast quest for the holy grail of rock…and all of Canada is invited!"
Over the last decade, Marianas Trench constantly raised the bar for quality music, which translated into their explosive live shows. They have built their name on relentless touring in Canada and globally, headlining tours in the USA, Australia, New Zealand, and soon in Europe for the first time in September-October 2016.
Since their 2006 debut, Fix Me, Marianas Trench have had two Certified Platinum-selling records (Masterpiece Theatre, Ever After), chart topping hits including “Fallout,” ”‘Haven’t Had Enough,” and “Stutter,” garnered multiple SOCAN and MMVA Awards, number 1 videos on MuchMusic, and JUNO 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 breakthrough smash "Call Me Maybe."
Joining the band on tour is Canadian singer/songwriter, Shawn Hook, who is born and raised in British Columbia. Shawn’s musical journey has proven that he is an emotive and soulful singer. His live performances are equally as impressive, showcasing his remarkable depth and vocal range. Recently, he performed with Hailee Steinfeld at the 2016 iHeartRadio Much Music Video Awards. His sophomore album, Analog Love was released on June 2015 via Universal Music Canada. On the heels of the release, Shawn celebrated “Sound Of Your Heart” a standout track on the record, being certified Platinum in Canada.
