Here’s the lyric video for our new single “What’s fair is fair”. I gotta say that Philip Sportel did a great job bringing this to life. I’m not sure how he did it exactly but the mood of it suits the track perfectly. We’re currently putting together plans to shoot a performance video for this song so standby for that but in the mean time…enjoy!
Due to circumstances that are out of our control we are unable to get into the US to perform in Toledo (2/14), Cleveland (2/15) and Pittsburg (2/16) this weekend. We are deeply frustrated by the situation and are working hard to make sure it never happens again. We will make up the cancelled shows as soon as possible.
Thanks again for getting us to 100%, we’re stoked to get started on the new record. We’ve been road testing new songs at all of our summer one-offs and they’re really starting to take shape. If everything falls into place we’ll be in the studio in October to lay it all down. Of course we’ll be keeping all of you pledgers in the loop every step of the way.
And of course the campaign stays open all the way to release day (early 2014) and you’re free to pledge on and spread the word right up until it comes out. At this point we start kicking back 5% to cystic fibrosis research in honor of our dearly departed friend and agent Paul Gourlie. We will also be adding new pledges as we go to make things interesting for those of you who’ve been with us since the beginning of the campaign and hopefully to coax in a few new followers. If you have any suggestions let us know! – but no promises ; ).
I also think that it’s important to clarify that any monies raised that are above and beyond what we need to actually record the album will be fully invested back into the project. Whether it be to market and promote it or to use as tour support as we criss- cross the globe in support of it.
Thanks so much for the love and support and we’ll check in with y’all again soon.

We are extremely grateful for all the support you’ve given us over the years. Whether it’s buying the albums or singing your hearts out with us at the top of your lungs at the shows, you guys have never let us down. There would be no Trews without Trews’ fans. We feel like you are a part of our band, and that we are one big crazy family who are all in it together. Now we want to take this relationship to a new level by getting you involved in the making of our next record right from the beginning. We are launching a PledgeMusic campaign that will gain you access to our new album as we’re making it through weekly updates, exclusive content and experiences and a slew of other surprises to be unleashed along the way.
