    The Trews are a Canadian rock group from Antigonish, Nova Scotia, consisting of vocalist Colin MacDonald, guitarist John-Angus MacDonald, bassist Jack Syperek, and drummer Sean Dalton.

    The band are currently based in Niagara Falls, Ontario.

    The band started off with the name One I'd Trouser, before changing their name to Trouser and eventually The Trews. They released an EP as One I'd Trouser, and a second EP under the name "The Trews."

    In the early summer of 2002 the band was selected to take part in the 97.7 HTZ FM Rock Search, a high profile contest that is held annually by the Southern Ontario rock radio station. Winning the contest would prove to their big break as they soon landed a recording contract with Sony-BMG Canada.

    The release of their first full-length CD House of Ill Fame in 2003, soon followed. House of Ill Fame contained the hit singles "Every Inambition", "Not Ready to Go", "Tired of Waiting" "Fleeting Trust" and "Confessions". "Not Ready To Go" hit number one on Canadian rock radio and was the most played song of 2004 in that format.

    House Of Ill Fame, has also been certified gold in Canada. In the past three years, the band have racked up six top 10 rock radio singles, including two chart-toppers.

    The band has recently completed work on a follow-up to House of Ill Fame with producer Jack Douglas. The new album, Den of Thieves, was released on August 16th, 2005. The first single, "So She's Leaving", was released to radio June 28th, 2005 and was followed by the singles "Yearning", "Poor Ol' Broken Hearted Me" and "I Can't Say."

    They're a decent Canadian band that puts on a good live show according to Dan McLeod Thanks for that Dan.
