Marianas Trench & Carly Rae Jepsen July 13th Alderney Landing.

JUNO Award-nominated pop rockers Marianas Trench and Carly Rae Jepsen are returning to Halifax to perform at the Alderney Landing Events Plaza on Friday, July 13 at 6 p.m.

Breaking through with Masterpiece Theatre in 2009, Marianas Trench returned in 2011 with their follow up Ever After.  Clocking in at just under an hour, the 12-song disc is constructed around a story written by frontman Josh Ramsay and includes the singles “Fallout” and “Haven’t Had Enough.”

Since its release, Masterpiece Theatre has received platinum-certification in Canada and taken home multiple awards, including a MuchMusic Video Award for the video “Cross My Heart.”  Released on November 21, 2011, Ever After has already been certified gold.

Crafted with her long-time collaborator, writer-producer Ryan Stewarts, Jepsen’s Curiosity includes the hit single “Call Me Maybe,” which she wrote with Marianas Trench singer Josh Ramsay.  Since the single’s release, she has been signed to Justin Bieber’s manager’s label Schoolboy Records in the U.S., performed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, had over 50 million YouTube views and started touring the world.

Vancouver-based Jepsen released her debut Tug of War in 2008 after becoming a finalist on “Canadian Idol.”  She was nominated for a MuchMusic Video Award, a 2010 JUNO Award and had two singles receive gold certification.  The title track beat out the likes of Nickelback to win the 2010 Canadian Radio Music Award for Song of the Year.
