Multi-Platinum selling Canadian pop-rockers Marianas Trench are gearing up to release their studio album Astoria on October 23rd via Cherrytree/604 Records/Interscope. The band have also announced they will head out on a headline tour of the U.S. this fall. THE HEY YOU GUYS!! TOUR will kick off November 3rd in Portland, OR.

The Vancouver-based quartet’s front man Josh Ramsay describes Astoria as a loose concept record based around the band’s love of 1980s fantasy and adventure films. From that starting point, Marianas Trench was able to channel its musical influences from that era into the new material. While on the surface that sounds like a lighthearted exercise in millennial nostalgia, Ramsay says the album was actually created under the most challenging personal circumstances he and the band have experienced to date. “This album is about completely falling to pieces, and picking yourself back up again,” he explains. “We took the hardest two years of my life and made it into something beautiful, and our best work to date.”
