Train Biography & News
Train set to release "Bulletproof Picasso"
When a new album is set to drop from this band, you don't merely say it's coming down the pipe. Coming down the tracks is more like it, as Train gets set to release the new album "Bulletproof Picasso."
Fans were quick to jump on any and all news about the new project back in May. After guitarist Jimmy Stafford tweeted, "An anagram of the first single from the new @train album is now available! SGIJANNULAEBENEL. Yep," the social media savvy quickly responded with, "Angel In Blue Jeans."
While that tweet stirred the pot in terms of fan enthusiasm, an announcement by Scott Underwood on June 5 put somewhat of a damper on the joyfulness. That's because Underwood posted a message thanking fans for their support and announced he was leaving the band to pursue writing, producing and other music-related ventures. The drummer, who has been with Train for two decades, was replaced by Drew Shoals.
The new incarnation of Train played NBC's "Today" show shortly after Shoals came on board, releasing a brand new track called "Angel in Blue Jeans." The band also announced a series of shows they'll be doing to coincide with the new album release date. They'll play back-to-back shows in Los Angeles on September 17th and 18th, in San Francisco on September 21st and 22nd, and a one-night stand at New York City's famed Radio City Music Hall on September 25th.
Train carries the torch for pop rock (Updated January 30, 2013)
When you get a bunch of solid musicians together, anything can happen. And good things have happened to Train, with core trio Pat Monahan (vocals), Jimmy Stafford (guitar) and Scott Underwood (drums) making music for the better part of two decades. From "Meet Virginia" to "Marry Me," these superstars have carried the torch for adult contemporary and pop rock in the 21st century.
The tracks were laid and the foundation formed for Train back in 1993, as Monahan left his hometown in western Pennsylvania and resettled in California. He played local gigs with Rob Hotchkiss, and the duo became a trio when it added Stafford to the mix. Once Underwood and bassist Charlie Conlin came aboard, Train was ready to pull out of the station.
It took roughly four years for Train to drum up interest – especially among record labels. When they finally signed a deal with Aware Records, the group's eponymous debut album in 1998 was self-financed. One track on the project, "Meet Virginia," became a Top 40 hit, but Train wouldn't find the charts again until the stunning success of "Drops of Jupiter" in 2001. Monahan said the song was inspired by the death of his mother, and the opening lines came to him in a dream.
Over the course of several years, the band would hit both peaks and valleys. Their 2003 album, "My Private Nation" went platinum on the strength of "Calling All Angels." But three years later, sales for "It's You" were the lowest of Train's career. Something had to give after Monahan nearly went solo, but he returned to Train in time for the band to issue its fifth album, the aptly named "Save Me." The smash hit "Hey, Soul Sister" revived Train's career, and 2012's "California 37" sparked a tour across the East coast of the United States.
Train was seen in Times Square on New Year's Eve for a special performance of their new single, "Mermaid," and the band has sold out performances in Europe through February 2013.
