The Trews are back with a brand-new video for their latest track “God Speed Rebel”, created entirely on virtual meeting app ZOOM. Watch it below
Colin MacDonald, lead singer notes, “Spring is in the air and we’re in quarantine, here’s a new song to help you along these unprecedented days. This tune showed up on our doorstep last year and we’ve been looking for a home for it ever since. We figured it was time to send this quirky, warm and friendly little jam out into the world to keep you company while you’re stuck inside. A song for your soundtrack of solitude. It’s about rock ‘n’ roll, being an individual in the ever changing and unforgiving world, doing the right thing always and helping others along the way….or it’s just a cool and catchy tune, if we do say so ourselves. Stay safe, stay healthy, stay home. God Speed Rebel”
On the making of the video, John-Angus MacDonald, guitarist says, “Like everyone else we’ve had a lot of plans fall through recently and we’re trying to keep ourselves busy and our fans entertained while we wait this thing out. Seemed like the perfect time to share a new song but we had to get creative about how we did a video, seeing how we haven’t been in a room together for over three weeks and we’re all practicing self-isolation and social distancing. Zoom to the rescue! Hope you like it.”
A rare inside look to the inside into the band’s home life – the video features each band member in their own frame. We can even see some special guest star appearances including Rio, Jeff’s cat and John-Angus’ 6 year-old son Elliott, who steals the show with his incredible dance moves.
The track will be available on all streaming platforms April 10th with all revenue from the streams and sales being donated directly to Unison Benevolent Fund. Unison Benevolent Fund is a non-profit, registered charity that provides counselling and emergency relief services to the Canadian music community.
