SET TO PLAY TORONTO ON NOVEMBER 27
Toronto, ON – November 17, 2017 – Capping off a busy year that saw The Treble release their debut album Modernaires, two singles & videos and play a cross-Canada tour, the band now release an emotionally-charged video for their latest single “Kings and Queens”. Watch the new video here.
The video for “Kings and Queens” follows in the artistic footsteps of their innovative lyric video for “Wherever You Go”, a video which saw the band collaborate with Pixelstick artists on a global level. The genesis of the video for “Kings and Queens” began when the band were inspired to again reach out to fans, this time asking for photographs and stories about a time when they faced personal struggle and how they overcame it. The resulting video for “Kings and Queens” is an emotional patchwork of true life experience, full of inspirational stories of perseverance and personal triumph.
Describing the video the band say, “The video is a collection of stories from people around the world about overcoming something difficult to achieve something beautiful. In our previous video for ‘Wherever You Go’, we asked light painting photographers from all over to portray our lyrics with their art. With ‘Kings and Queens’ we asked people to allow us to share their stories to our music. While ‘Wherever You Go’ was about searching for something, ‘Kings and Queens’ is a song about finding it, and realizing that to truly have it, means to struggle.”
Last month the band staged their 5th 24 Shows in 24 Hours – an event that’s part fundraiser, part endurance test that saw The Treble play acoustic sets each hour at a variety of businesses, venues, and historical and recognizable landmarks across Winnipeg, in exchange for donations to support the The National Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA). The band raised almost $10,000.
And if that wasn’t enough, this seemingly tireless band will be back in Toronto to play their second Toronto show in a year, returning to The Drake Hotel November 27th for a special showcase performance.
