Platinum selling rock band, Marianas Trench has now released their new EP, Face The Music, on Cherrytree Records. The EP features 4 tracks including their current single, "Desperate Measures," and "Haven't Had Enough," as well as brand new acoustic tracks of "Fallout" and "Haven't Had Enough."
"Fallout" (Acoustic) is exclusively streaming now for fans to hear over at PureVolume. Mike Ayley (bass player) spoke about the new track saying, "We are very happy to have an official acoustic version of 'Fallout' available for our fans. This is one of my favourite tracks on the album. I remember the first time I was in the studio and we were tracking the demo. We were playing around with the arrangement, working the drums part in particular, and it just completed itself. I love the way this track manages to utilize lots of harmonies, which is a real Marianas Trench trademark, yet is very easy to sing along to. Hope you enjoy Face The Music!"

The band is a family affair consisting of three brothers, Seamus Blackwell (Vocals, Guitar), Aidan Blackwell (Bass), and David Blackwell (Drums) who have been heavily involved in music all their lives.
