Marianas Trench and the Last Crusade hits Saskatoon


Multi-Platinum selling progressiv­e pop band Marianas Trench have announced their second headlining tour in Canada last year year. Marianas Trench and the Last Crusade hits Saskatoon Feb. 6.

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,” Ramsay explained in a release. “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 announced, “Grab your treasure map and your compass ‘cuz (sic) 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!”

Marianas Trench and the Last Crusade stops in Saskatoon at SaskTel Centre on Feb. 6.
