Marianas Trench Headlines Summer in the Park

Summer in the Park is gonna rock hard on Friday, August 4, when Marianas Trench headlines opening night of Summer in the Park.

Marianas Trench is a Canadian rock band from Vancouver, British Columbia formed in 2001. The band consists of members Josh Ramsay (lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist, pianist, songwriter, and occasional drummer), Matt Webb (lead guitarist and backing vocalist), Mike Ayley (bass guitarist and backing vocalist), and Ian Casselman (drummer, percussionist, and backing vocalist). The band has released four full-length studio albums, the most recent titled Astoria, released on October 23, 2015, along with 2011's Ever After, 2009's Masterpiece Theatre and 2006's Fix Me. Their third album Ever After and their current album Astoria were both nominated for a JUNO Award.

“We are thrilled to have locked down one of the hottest bands in Canada,” said Summer in the Park Committee Member, Derek Shogren. “These guys play across the country and around the world”.

Since their 2006 debut, Fix Me, the Vancouver, BC-based four piece 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.

Over time Marianas Trench have toured relentlessly in Canada and globally; headlining tours in Europe, Australia and New Zealand, and the US. They’ve also headlined events at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics and 2015 Pan Am Games in Toronto, as well as in the Philippines and South Korea. They performed at half time at the 100th Grey Cup and 2013 Junos along with headlining the Canadian Radio Music Awards.

“These guys put on one heck of a show,” said Shogren. “Their concerts are entertainment at its best.  Anyone who sees a Marianas Trench show wants to see them again and again”.

Marianas Trench has most recently been nominated for a 2017 JUNO for Pop Album of the Year.

Wristbands are only $35 including HST until July 1st. “This gives Marianas Trench fans an opportunity to see them live at a low cost.  This is going to be another incredible Summer in the Park weekend, I can’t wait” said Shogren.
