After over a decade of touring at home and around the world one thing has become abundantly clear to us – Trews’ fans are the most loyal and passionate fans any band could ever ask for!
We are extremely grateful for all the support you’ve given us over the years. Whether it’s buying the albums or singing your hearts out with us at the top of your lungs at the shows, you guys have never let us down. There would be no Trews without Trews’ fans. We feel like you are a part of our band, and that we are one big crazy family who are all in it together. Now we want to take this relationship to a new level by getting you involved in the making of our next record right from the beginning. We are launching a PledgeMusic campaign that will gain you access to our new album as we’re making it through weekly updates, exclusive content and experiences and a slew of other surprises to be unleashed along the way.
All pledgers will receive an mp3 of the album prior to it being released to the general public and anyone who pledges over $100 will receive a thank you in the album artwork. Once we make our goal, 5% of any additional money raised will be going to Cystic Fibrosis Canada (Peel & District Chapter).
We’ve been working away in our jam space writing and demoing new material for the past few months. We aim to start recording in the fall with the goal of having a release date in early 2014.
We feel that PledgeMusic is the future of the music industry, it allows us to cut out the middle man and bring the music straight to you …..THE FANS. Its an exciting new way to bring us all together and completely make you part of what we do.
We’re looking forward to it!
NOTE – The pricing is inclusive of ship costs. International fans may be charged more to accommodate international shipping
