RECORD STORE DAY: THE GLOBAL CELEBRATION OF RECORD STORE CULTURE KICKS OFF ON APRIL 13, 2019
We’re excited to announce that the Trews have been named as Canadian Ambassadors for Record Store Day 2019, which takes place on April 13, 2019! The Trews join notables Pearl Jam (2019 USA Ambassadors), The Sheepdogs (2018 Champions of Canada), Elton John (2017 RSD Champion of Great Britain), Jack White (2013 RSD Ambassador) and Dave Grohl (2015 RSD Ambassador) in celebrating independent record stores.
The Trews will be releasing an exclusive pressing of their 2005 game-changing album Den of Thieves. Certified Canadian Gold with over 50,000 sales, Den of Thieves established the band as radio heavyweights with the iconic hits “Poor Ol’ Broken Hearted Me” and “So She’s Leaving.”
Available on double vinyl for the first time, the Record Store Day Canada special edition features transparent orange and classic black vinyl, rare photos, new liner notes from John-Angus MacDonald, plus 5 bonus tracks including “Den of Thieves”.
As avid vinyl collectors and listeners we are proud to be Record Store Day 2019 Ambassadors for Canada! Independent record stores are great resources for the discovery of music and great hubs for building strong local music communities. Be sure and support your local independent record store today and everyday!
