Marianas Trench, live.
Marianas Trench – Say Anything live
Back in October, I had the opportunity to see Marianas Trench perform here in London on their last tour in support of their debut album, Fix Me. As always, I had the opportunity to spend a little time with the band before the show, and with Ian Casselman and Mike Ayley in particular. I’m always impressed that those guys remember so much about me every time I see them.
Anyway, I got a chance to talk to singer Josh Ramsay a little, too, and just like the other guys in the band, he was stoked about the fact that the four of them were going to appear on Much On Demand a mere couple of days later. He was not too thrilled, however, with the throat infection that he was suffering from at the time, and trying hard to rest up before their television appearance.
So I was kind of happy earlier to stumble across this video, one of the tunes they performed on Muchmusic on October 3rd. And though you wouldn’t know it if you weren’t familiar with the band, Josh is actually very much subduing his vocals; ordinarily he sings in a higher register and screams a fair bit more. It would seem that though he wasn’t quite well yet, he and the others (including guitarist Matt Webb) really hit it out of the park that afternoon.
And also, throat infection or no, Josh Ramsay is an incredibly talented singer. I simply can’t wait for the new album; a recent msg from Ian tells me that “the album is gonna be killer but is taking some time.” I’m looking so forward to it, and the band being back on the road, that I could just throw something through the picture window right now…
