The Trews: Vintage Love

By Kerry Doole

The Trews - "Vintage Love" (Cadence Music Group): It seems that meat 'n potatoes Canadian rock 'n roll is somewhat overlooked these days, but the likes of The Trews, Arkells and Matt Mays are still proudly flying that flag.

The Trews releases its sixth studio album, the Pledge-funded Civilianaires, on Sept. 14, and this new cut confirms the potency of the guitar-driven sound of the Nova Scotia-bred, Hamilton, ON-based combo of singer/guitarist Colin MacDonald, guitarist John-Angus MacDonald, bassist Jack Syperek, and drummer Chris Gormley.

The track features the ruggedly powerful vocals of Colin MacDonald bolstered by gutsy guitars and a big chorus. This is vintage Trews, and the band's loyal legion of fans will love it.


Over a career now spanning two decades, The Trews have earned two gold albums, numerous industry awards, and 17 Top-10 singles on Canadian rock radio. Look for this cut to boost that figure.

The band recently played three shows in Ireland and has select Canadian summer fest dates coming up. Check the sked here.
