While Mariana’s Trench have been busy touring for months this spring in the U.S after the October release of Astoria, a new chapter is unfolding as the Canadian band head home to continue the tour in Canada.
One of these highlights is the first performance of ‘Wildfire’, a song that was specifically cut out of the tour lineup, at least until the March 9th show of the Never Say Die Tour in Kingston, ON.
Front-man Josh Ramsay previewed that something special was coming via Twitter for the Candian tour, that would take a lot of courage and be emotionally tolling.
And then March 9th rolled around and ‘Wildfire’ was performed live for the first time on the tour.
Ramsay quickly states to the crowd that he “Honestly wasn’t ready to perform it in front of anyone yet. Be gentle.” before slowly going into a powerful performance.
Throughout the performance, Ramsay struggles a bit, but ultimately gives the crowd an emotional and fantastic performance. And it’s absolutely beautiful.

Twitter overflowed with messages after the performance, and Ramsay wrote simply :
All the love to Josh Ramsay and to the guys of Mariana’s Trench for spreading beautiful music wherever they go! ❤
