Updated 30/10/16. MARIANAS TRENCH postpone start of Canadian tour due to illness. The first 10 shows of the “Marianas Trench and the Last Crusade” tour set to begin on November 1st in Prince George, BC have been postponed due to an illness within the band.
The Abbotsford concert at the Abbotsford Centre on Friday, November 4, 2016 has been rescheduled to Friday, February 10, 2017. Tickets for the original concert date will be honoured on the rescheduled date.
“No one is more disappointed about this than I am,” says frontman Josh Ramsay. “Unfortunately, we must postpone some of our upcoming tour dates. My throat infection and resulting scar tissue is serious enough that my doctor’s diagnosis was for me to not sing a note until the New Year. However, I can’t handle this forcing me to cancel a second tour in a row completely, so I’ve chosen to postpone the first half of the tour to give my voice a little extra time to recuperate. With enough vocal rest and medicine, I should be back in fighting shape in no time. Hope to see you all soon!”
The tour is in support of Marianas Trench’s latest studio album Astoria (604 Records/Sony) which echoes one part 1980’s fantasy adventure film and one part classic Marianas Trench. The new video for the single “Who Do You Love” can be viewed here. The video is a “Pay It Forward” gesture inspiring people to go out and do some good, make the world a better place, even if just for a moment.
Since their 2006 debut, Fix Me, Marianas Trench have had two Certified Platinum-selling records (Masterpiece Theatre, Ever After), chart topping hits, garnered multiple SOCAN and MMVA Awards, number 1 videos on MuchMusic, 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.”

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!”
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.
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.”
