Canadian band goes back in time with new album and tour
By Amelia Fournier
Off the back of a new album release, Canadian hard rock band the Trews kicked off their national tour earlier this month and will be making a stop at the Burton Cummings Theatre on Nov. 26. While on tour, they will be performing songs from their latest compilation, Time Capsule. Released in September, Time Capsule is a collection of the band’s hits songs and new tracks.
“We tried to put [music] that resonates the most with our fans,” said John-Angus MacDonald, the band’s guitarist.
Despite being an album of predominantly hit singles, Time Capsules is not a mere compilation of chart-toppers. Tracks such as “Ishmael and Maggie” that were never released as singles but became live staples are included. Despite never topping the charts, fan favourite “Highway of Heroes” is featured along with four new tracks on the album. One of those new tracks, “Beautiful & Tragic,” was co-written by Canadian pop artist Serena Ryder.
