About Marianas Trench

Since forming in 2001, the rock band Marianas Trench have scored numerous hits in their home country of Canada while cultivating an ambitious blend of pop-punk, arena rock, dance music, and more. • The Vancouver group is led by singer, guitarist, and primary songwriter Josh Ramsay. He’s from a musical family—his mom was a vocal teacher and backup singer for Leonard Cohen, and his dad cofounded a popular recording studio. • Marianas Trench made their debut in 2002 with a self-titled EP. Their first LP, Fix Me, came out in 2006 and went gold in Canada, though it didn’t chart. • Each of the band’s four subsequent full-length albums has gone Top 10 in Canada. Their fourth album, 2015’s Astoria, peaked at No. 2 and made it to No. 53 on the Billboard 200 albums chart in the US. • Ramsay also writes and produces for other artists. He notably cowrote and produced Carly Rae Jepsen’s 2011 smash “Call Me Maybe.” • Marianas Trench won a Juno Award in Canada in 2013 for Group of the Year. • Ramsay says the group’s fifth album, 2019’s Phantoms, is about “someone descending into madness as he inhabits a house haunted by the ghost of his former love.” It was inspired by Edgar Allen Poe, and coincidentally, the album was finished on the late literary icon’s birthday.
