In 1998, several four youthful Canadians from Antigonish, Nova Scotia, made a decision to form a significant rock band. To take action, brothers Colin MacDonald (lead vocals/tempo electric guitar) and John-Angus MacDonald (lead electric guitar/history vocals), cousin Sean Dalton (drums), and longtime friend Jack port Syperek (bass) relocated into a home in Niagara Falls, Canada, to become closer to larger cities also to possess a practice space within their own house. In 2002, the Trews (their name originated from a lover suggestion, and can be the name of traditional Scottish trousers) received southern Ontario’s 97.7 HTZ-FM’s annual Rock and roll Search contest. This brought them interest from Big Sugars vocalist Gordon Johnson, who created the group’s self-titled EP and brought them along on tour along with his music group. In 2003, with Sony Music Canada, the Trews released their 1st full-length album, Home of Ill Popularity. Within the next couple of years, besides carrying out over 400 displays and earning the 2005 Canadian East Coastline Music Honor for Band of the entire year, the Trews discovered time to create and record tunes for his or her second record, Den of Thieves, released in the U.S. and Canada in 2006.
