It's a real privilege for us to have Marianas Trench join the Cherrytree roster."

604 President Jonathan Simkin commented,"604 is thrilled to have this opportunity to work with a label that has such a great track record of success with artists that are quirky and a bit left of center. We are looking forward to working with Martin and the whole Cherrytree team."

We kicked off last night with the Sirius XM Indie Awards and took home awards for VIDEO OF THE YEAR (FALLOUT) and POP GROUP OF THE YEAR! The best part is that it's all thanks to you (our amazing fans) that we were able to take home these awards, so thank you all so, so much for your support!

After the Indies, we headed over to the Danforth Music Hall and played a killer set for FANFEST! It was awesome to see so many people dancing, and we hope that have found some new fans in the audience.

This morning, we hopped on a plane at a time when the sun was just about up and are now in FREDERICTON ready to kick off the FACE THE MUSIC: WITH A VENGEANCE TOUR! We're back and the last few days have gotten us so jazzed up about the tour. Joining us again are very special guests DOWN WITH WEBSTER and ANAMI VICE, so you know it's going to be pretty fantastic. And.... we just found out that HALIFAX is sold out, which makes the start of this tour even more crazy!

Thank you, thank you, thank you to all of you for your support. Whether you've been requesting our songs on the radio, buying our albums, coming to shows, or spreading the word, you're all part of our team and we wouldn't be here without you. This tour is our way of giving back to our fans, and we can't wait to see some familiar faces and meet new people.

And so, fellow trenchers, let's get this party started. FREDERICTON, ARE YOU READY FOR THE FACE THE MUSIC: WITH A VENGEANCE TOUR????!!!!!
