Suspending Gravity Canadian Tour Hits The Road March 6
Toronto, ON – Time to dust off the shiny pants, the Trench is back! Double Platinum selling progressive pop band Marianas Trench will release its fifth full-length album Phantoms (pre-order link here) on March 1 through 604 Records. The group is also gearing up to hit the road across Canada in March, with further international tour dates confirmed throughout 2019, bringing you their musical art directly to your city.
The rabid Marianas Trench faithful got a preview of Phantoms this past autumn with the bouncy first single “I Knew You When,” currently climbing the Billboard Canadian Hot AC chart and the CHR Top 40 charts. The song’s high energy is indicative of the album as a whole, although lyrically it reflects Phantoms’ overall theme of coping with memories of past relationships.
Lead singer Josh Ramsay explains, "I wanted to set an album from the perspective of someone descending into madness as he inhabits a house haunted by the ghost of his former love. I looked to Edgar Allan Poe for inspiration. Strangely, the date he was rushed to the hospital preceding his death was October 3rd, the same day our first album was released, and the same date I was once to be married. Even more strangely, we finished this album on January 19th, his birthday. I'm not one for superstition, but that does feel oddly serendipitous."
