308 Ghost Train is an original rock band from Cortez, Florida with a sound based in the best of rock’s past and an uplifting and inspiring message for the people of today. The band makes music for music fans of all ages who’ve become disenfranchised with current artists and long for music with more substance than style. 308 Ghost Train has a new single, “21 Guns And A Million Tears,” now available on all streaming platforms dedicated to America’s military veterans and first responders and the track is an excellent introduction to the kind of significance-oriented rock the group puts down. The song is part of the new EP Born In The Wild that comes out June 18th, 2019.
308 Ghost Train was founded by POSI Award-winning songwriter and vocalist Anthony “Train” Caruso, an intense and deeply spiritual performer. The group takes its name from the Gospel of John 3:8 (“The wind blows wherever it will, and you hear the sound it makes, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”), the Holy Ghost that moves in Caruso’s heart, and the unstoppable vehicle whose name he carries. The music he writes carries a message of inclusion, spirituality, positivity, hope, and patriotism that our world needs and Caruso feels that the wind has been pushing him towards this project his whole life. The lineup also includes Chip Martin on guitars, Andrew Warren on bass, Dan Defigio on keyboards, and William Ellis on drums, a tight, versatile outfit that’s helped 308 Ghost Train draw comparisons to John Fogerty/CCR, Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, and John Mellencamp. The sound is organic and timeless, built upon artistry and the human experience.
Train is an electrifying frontman capable of creating an immediate bond with an audience and authentically communicating emotions to his fans. “My passion for being the vehicle for songs from a divine force is the most humbling and honorable gift in the world,” he says and it’s clear he means it. 308 Ghost Train is growing quickly and magnetizes listeners with a walk back in time that actually leads to a better future for rock music.
