» BACK TO FULL EVENT SCHEDULE

Known for their unhinged live shows and collection of songs that have been praised by Spin, Entertainment Weekly, Esquire and USA Today, STEEL TRAIN is very excited to announce a new album and North American tour with Tegan and Sara. The 8-week tour that began in Massachusetts on February 12th, will give Steel Train a chance to debut new songs from their upcoming summer release (on a soon to be announced record label). The premiere track from the band’s new album will be the edgy TURNPIKE GHOST, which lead singer and songwriter Jack Antonoff says, “Is a return to where we come from. We grew up playing legion halls and firehouses and the sound systems were always so bad we had to go ape shit to put on a real show, and somehow that inspired the music and lyrics to reflect all that madness.” TURNPIKE GHOST is now available for free download on the band’s official website – www.steeltrain.net. Steel Train is also proud to announce their performance at this year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on Saturday, April 17th.

Produced by Steven McDonald (Be Your Own Pet, Imperial Teen), Steel Train’s new album is the follow up to their record, TRAMPOLINE, which saw the band perform on Late Night with Conan O'Brien and share the stage with The Silversun Pickups, Ben Folds, Gomez and Say Anything, and appear at Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza, to name a few.

From the ambitious rocker TOUCH ME BAD to the playful SOLDIER IN THE ARMY, from the passionate album rock of BEHAVIOR to the rebellious YOU ARE DANGEROUS, this versatile new album brilliantly shows the strength of a band with a mission and as Antonoff adds “This new record is about getting the fuck out of bed with your mind open to the world - no bitterness. Nothing inspires me more than when I see that in people.”
