Madison, WI (Top40 Charts/ Shore Fire Media) - Pop-punk foursome Marianas Trench display soaring ambition and decisive technical prowess on their U.S. debut 'Masterpiece Theatre', out September 28 on 604 Records, and the results are "a stellar release...that stands out from the pack by bringing something truly different and exciting to the table" (AMG).

Built around a high-concept title track, the album (which is nearing platinum sales in Canada) features three kaleidoscopic movements of "Masterpiece Theatre" that balance the vocal theatrics of Queen with the more hymnal qualities of the Beach Boys. Meanwhile, the propulsively punky pop-rock of standout track "Cross My Heart" sounds like what would happen if Foo Fighters, Green Day and Ben Folds Five had a party. The video, just added to mtvU and Music Choice, shows what would happen if that party unfolded on the streets of Vancouver.

Watch "Cross My Heart" at:

The album's four guest producers - Dave 'Rave' Ogilvie, Dave Genn, Greig Nori and Raine Maida - have also worked on recordings by Nine Inch Nails, Sum 41, Iggy Pop, and Avril Lavigne, among others.
