pew is a thrash metal band from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada that was founded in October 2006 to release their first album, Torn To Shreds, in 2009. Originally under just the membership of Clancy McDonald (a.k.a. CoRpsE; of Get Wrecked; guitar/vocals) and Rob Fris (a.k.a. Roberage; ex-Plague Dogs; drums) their brand of punk influenced music would be first heard at local jam spot Area 52 (now gone). After a while Troy Kirkler (of Hellacaust; lead guitar) and Simon Fraser (a.k.a. Slimey Sime; bass/vocals) were asked to join. The subject matter on that first album's music centered around topics of partying, drinking, and topics to which they express distaste to like cops and religion; political correctness or preaching is not their mantra.
