Steel Train Wrap Up New LP, Confirm Format Tour

By | July 16, 2007 at 5:30 PM

Drive-Thru Records is proud to announce New York quintet, Steel Train, are
currently finishing up work on their ambitious sophomore album. Set for an
October 2007 release, the still untitled album is being produced by Mark
Trombino (Rilo Kiley, Jimmy Eat World). Steel Train will embark on a
47-date North American tour with The Format beginning July 13th at the
Orpheum Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona.

In the last two years, Steel Train has played over 400 shows, winning fans
over with their meticulously crafted rock songs strengthened by skilled
instrumentation. Though in love with playing shows to their rapidly
growing fan base, Steel Train was eager to begin work on their next album.
The band had the chance to develop the new material naturally on the road
before heading into the studio, giving them the opportunity to see what
stands up live that a studio may or may not bring to life. The end result
is an album that reveals the solidarity of a focused rock unit, one that
introduces fans to a fuller sound and rich complexity only hinted at in
the band’s earlier work.

Steel Train’s blend of rock n roll, delivered with boundless energy and
mixed with their compelling live performance, appeals to fans from all
over the musical spectrum. Steel Train has performed at Warped Tour and
has made two appearances at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. The band
has also shared the stage with Dashboard Confessional, Hellogoodbye, The
Flaming Lips, The Violent Femmes, My Morning Jacket, Something Corporate
and Matisyahu, among many others.
