SEVENTRAIN is the name of a new San Diego, California-based blues-influeced metal band which features former CAGE guitarist Eric Horton, drummer Joel Maitoza (24-7 SPYZ, SHOCKHEAD), guitarist Jef Poremba (6ONE9, COFFI BAKER), vocalist Jon Campos (DIVE BOMBER), and bassist Steve "Dino" Andino (TOURNIQUET).

SEVENTRAIN has been in the recording studio over the past several months with engineer Don Lithgow (BLINK 182, FINCH, NEW FOUND GLORY) and is getting ready to release its self-titled debut album in the U.S. and Europe in early 2014.

Drummer/producer Joel Maitoza, who is best known for his work with the New York-based heavy metal soul group 24-7 SPYZ, states: "It was a blast to just get back into the studio again with a bunch of old friends and bash out some tunes that replicates the music we all grew up on during the '80s and '90s. Just raw, stripped down, in-your-face, hard rock lovingly tracked in analog on 2-inch tape."

SEVENTRAIN is currently lining up print, radio and podcast interviews to promote the CD prior to hitting the road.

The first single, "Change", is available for streaming below.

Greg Rupp played bass on the SEVENTRAIN album before being replaced by Andino.
