The Trews On Tour with Kid Rock in Canada, Playing Headline NYC Show 6/28 (Win Tickets!)

THE TREWS released Hope & Ruin last month and now their fourth full-length studio album is available on VINYL courtesy of Bumstead Records. The quartet begin the “Born Free Tour” with KID ROCK this past week in the Great White North, where they’ll show the ‘American Bad Ass’ what it takes to ring Candaian ears

THE TREWS most recently played host to CMJ, when they gave a “Scene Report” on what goes down in their hometown of Nova Scotia.

Popmatters says, “There are some incredible moments” on Hope & Ruin and The Aquarian agrees it’s easy to, “get sucked into its vibe.” In June, The Trews will summer in New York with five shows in covering the state from Niagra Falls to Houston Street.

June 22 – Syracuse, NY – Westcott Theatre
June 23 – Rochester, NY – Water Street Music Hall
June 24 – Watertown, NY – Watertown Fairgrounds
June 28 – New York, NY – Mercury Lounge

Recorded live-off-the-floor, Hope & Ruin captures lightning in a bottle, resulting in a sound that is raw, electric and igniting. The video for the title track can be found below along with a full list of tour dates.

“The Trews are, without a doubt, the greatest rock band of their generation.”
– Benjamin Ricci, Performer Magazine (From cover feature, April 2011)

“Canada’s Trews excel at delivering big ol’ shiny rock songs. Their latest continues the trend with a collection of rock anthems filled with blaring electric guitars and tight harmonies.”
– Twangville

“The songs all creep up on you, rather than being over-the-top. What they wil ensure is that you’ll want to go back and check them out again and again.” – Malcolm Dome, Classic Rock Magazine

“The band is too good for fans of great music not to enjoy. You’ll find songs on this album that you’ll love your years, we can guarantee you that.”
– Alternative Addiction

“The Trews is a refreshing blast of modern pop rock. Producing good hooks just seems to be in the very fabric of this band’s DNA and there’s no shortage of excellent songs to mine from the dozen on their latest, Hope and Ruin.”
– Bill Sullivan, The Rock and Roll Report

“If ‘One By One’ is any hint of the rest of the record, this is one I’ll be snagging. The track sounds fantastic, the vocals are dead on, and it brings me back to a place when actual songwriting seemed to be of great importance.”
– dysonsound

“Having been nominated for a Juno Award (Canada’s Grammy) four times in five years, The Trews are certainly no stranger to the Canadian charts, but that kind of talent needs to be embraced by the United States. Let this entry serve as the start of the Trews U.S. revolution.”
– Resident Music Pundit

“Big riffs, bigger hooks, anthemic choruses-Canadian alt-rockers The Trews bring all of that and more”
– Guitar Edge Magazine

“The Trews’ strength is in the hooky rock that dominates the set list… They nimbly balance between commercial pop and tougher rock without falling into either camp.”
– Hal Horiowitz, All Music
