Civilianaires is the band's most fearless record yet with personal and political lyrics driven by a refreshing new sound. The Trews approached Civilianaires, their electrifying and wildly original follow-up to 2014's The Trews, the way a contractor tackles a kitchen reno:  tearing things down to the studs, then building out piece by new piece. "We're almost in existential-crisis-mode if we don't have new songs we're excited about," guitarist/songwriter John-Angus MacDonald says, "With us it's always 'What's next?' We're most galvanized while we're creating. And this new album is a completely fresh take on what we've done before."
It features production credits from up and comer Derek Hoffman (The Elwins, Seaway) and the legendary Bob Rock. The band also worked alongside Max Kerman from Arkells, who co-wrote and co-produced their second single  "Vintage Love", along with a co-write with Serena Ryder on the title track.
