Marianas Trench drop music video for ‘I Knew You When’

Fresh off announcing a massive tour itinerary for the months of May and June, Marianas Trench have returned with a brand new music video. On Thursday (Dec. 20), the Canadian band released the three-and-a-half minute clip for “I Knew You When”; their upcoming new album’s lead single.

In a press statement, frontman Josh Ramsay describes the inspiration behind the new song which is real love, not the flowery, fake kind that’s found in Hallmark cards and made-for-TV movies.

“This is about long-term, messy, real-life love,” he begins.

“Love with consequence. Not about drunken lust, or doing shots in a bar, or ‘living life for just tonight,’ but the kind of real-life relationship that takes a decade to build, through ups and downs. If I’ve learned one thing in my life as a performer it’s this; if you’re going to sing a song every night for the rest of your career, you better mean it – and I do.”

“I Knew You When” will be featured on Marianas Trench’s forthcoming new album Phantoms. The record will see a release time frame of 2019. Phantoms is the follow-up to the group’s 2015 release —and “Goonies” inspired album— Astoria.

In support of Phantoms‘ release, the group recently announced plans to return to the United States for a springtime tour. The “Suspending Gravity” tour will begin on May 1 at the Theatre of Living Arts in Philadelphia and conclude a little over a month later on June 5 at the House of Blues in Anaheim.

Tickets for the upcoming trek are available for purchase on the band’s website while the complete list of tour dates can be found here.
