The achievements of rock ‘n’ roll heavyweights The Trews are many and mighty, highlighted by multiple radio hits drawn from seven critically acclaimed studio albums plus several EPs, a pair of live records, and a retrospective. Who could have predicted that electrifying recording sessions begun in Nashville in December 2019 with Black Crowes guitarist and long-timeTrews friend Rich Robinson would be curtailed by an unprecedented Canada/U.S. border closure, resulting in just three songs being completed? Amid the global pandemic, The Trews completed their forthcoming new full-length, The Wanderer, at home in Canada with producers Derek Hoffman and Eric Ratz. Now, they emerge with their fiercest and most accomplished set of songs to date.
Attentive listeners might notice that the buoyant, pealing new single “Enemy” features not Colin MacDonald on lead vocals but John-Angus, a Trews first.
