When Marianas Trench's lead singer Josh Ramsay came up with the title Astoria, he saw the album as a concept record based on 1980's fantasy adventure films; specifically The Goonies, which is set in the seemingly doomed town of Astoria, Oregon.
The idea was to let a classic coming of age movie inspire the music and overall feel of the record. Then, however, Ramsay had no idea the circumstances in his own life would result in a personal journey that took him from the highest high to the darkest point in his life and career. "A couple of years ago I felt on top of the world," he says: "My band, finally, after years of work, signed a huge American record deal. We were headlining arenas in Canada. I'd been nominated for a Grammy for 'Call Me Maybe,' (Carly Rae Jepsen). I was engaged to the love of my life and it was like, this is my moment."
Soon afterwards, Ramsay's mother - who, along with his entire musical family, he credits as his most important influences - was diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia - a debilitating, fast-acting "cross between Parkinson's and Alzheimer's." That and the self-imposed pressure of writing and recording Astoria put him into a tailspin. "I worked myself into not being able to write at all. My mother got sicker. I wasn't coping well and I became incredibly difficult to be around." So difficult, in fact, his relationship with his fiancé deteriorated swiftly and ultimately ended.
