Since the release of their highly celebrated debut House of Ill Fame (2003), The Trews have gained a reputation as one of Canada's most electrifying live Rock bands. Ten years, five studio albums and thousands of gigs in, the Ontario-based rockers are still going strong and are as willing as ever to break the mold. They release their self-titled, Nettwerk debut digitally in the U.S. on April 22, 2014.
Produced by Gavin Brown (Metric, Billy Talent, The Tragically Hip) and guitarist John-Angus MacDonald (The Trews, The Glorious Sons), The Trews (Nettwerk) is the band's maiden release with new label Nettwerk, home to Passenger, Peter Murphy, Boy & Bear, Family of the Year and more. The album not only boasts a guest spot by Canadian songstress, Serena Ryder, but contributions from die-hard Trews fans on some tracks; just one of the perks available to fans who contributed to The Trews' hugely successful PledgeMusiccampaign. In addition to allowing loyal supporters unparalleled access to the band during the recording process and partially funding the record, the PledgeMusic campaign, which concludes on April 22, is an effort by The Trews to raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis Canada in honor of a friend who passed away from CF last year.

The blend of upbeat rockers and raw ballads on The Trews displays the foursome's growth as songwriters and performers as never before, and nowhere more so than on "In the Morning" featuring Serena Ryder, and "65 Roses," a song inspired by their close friend's struggle with CF. The Trews blazing lead single "What's Fair Is Fair" is out now on iTunes with the accompanying lyric video on YouTube and stream at Soundcloud - Feel free to post and share.
