Who: The Trews
To call a band “the greatest rock band of their generation” is quite a strong (if not crazily over the top) statement- Canadian rockers The Trews have been bestowed this title by Performer Magazine (as well as many other various flattering reviews) ever since their newest album Hop & Ruin came out earlier this year. Whether or not they live up to this bold label may yet to be determined, but one thing can’t be denied: these boys seriously rock. Their hook-laden anthems are gritty and riff-filled, and they manage to tread the fine line between catchy and real in a way that few rockers do.
They’re treating the US to a show tonight at the Viper Room, so make sure to go check these Canooks out- they’ve garnered way too much praise to pass it up.
