Burning Rain, the hard rock band founded by guitarist extraordinaire Doug Aldrich and vocalist Keith St. John have announced the release of their fourth studio album, Face the Music, on March 22nd via Frontiers Music SRL.
The band has also shared the latest video/single, “Midnight Train”.
When asked why the band chose to release “Midnight Train” as the first single, Aldrich explained, “it’s been some time since the last BR record, and we wanted to come out swinging! “Midnight Train” encompasses the sound of Burning Rain. It sounds fresh and heavy. I thought it was a cool lead off track to reintroduce the band. People normally have different ideas about favorite songs and there are a number of tracks that could have been first, but we just went with ‘Midnight Train.'”
“Midnight Train’s” message, albeit fully ensconced in carnality, is about wanting something so brutally bad when you can’t have it,” added St. John. “The main character here is basically a deeply tortured soul during all the daytime hours. The phallic likening to the train and its track along with the blackness, the bed of nails, and the cravings of the night are meant to further fortify the extremity of sexual addiction. Doug had all the basic music together including bass, drums, and all when he first played me a demo of the song. I loved it immediately. The first experimental vocal track I scatted out had the basic framework for the chorus, which we both felt had good potential, but the original verse began with a higher, bluesier part that seemed to not quite fit. After I fashioned a new verse with a lower, more growly approach, we both felt it really complimented the chorus and we knew this track was in good standing!”
