via press release:
Vancouver based, JUNO Award winners Marianas Trench have released their long-awaited, new single, “I Knew You When” (via 604 Records). The track is the first single off their forthcoming album and the band are currently in the studio putting the finish touches on the new music.
“I Knew You When” is the perfect blend of fresh new pop-rock beats that blend seamlessly with the contagious sound of lead singer, Josh Ramsay’s incredible vocals.
Said Ramsay, ” I wanted to make a fun pop dance track that actually meant something to me, personally. This is about long term, messy, real life love. Love with consequence. Not about drunken lust, or doing shots in a bar, or “living life for just tonight,” but the kind of real-life relationship that takes a decade to build, through ups and downs”.
Since their 2006 debut, Fix Me, Marianas Trench have had two certified platinum-selling records (Masterpiece Theatre, Ever After) and two certified gold-selling albums with chart topping hits including ‘Rhythm Of your Heart,’ ‘Haven’t Had Enough,’ and ‘Who Do You Love.’ Along with double platinum and gold digital singles, the band has also garnered multiple SOCAN and MMVA Awards, number 1 videos on MuchMusic, JUNO Award nominationsand won the 2013 JUNO Award for Group of the Year. Ramsay also received a Grammy nomination in 2013 for co-writing and producing Carly Rae Jepsen’s breakthrough, diamond selling, international smash “Call Me Maybe.”
