The Grammy Award winning American rock band Train will return to Vancouver on September 25th to perform at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre with support Mat Kearney and Andy Grammer.
The band supported the release of California 37 with a variety of television appearances (including a weeklong residency as house band on "Rachael Ray") and the launch of "California 37," the third varietal from Train's award-winning Save Me, San Francisco Wine Company.
The much awaited successor to 2009's multi-platinum Save Me, San Francisco (which showcased 2010's "Hey, Soul Sister," the top-selling song of 2010), California 37 is available everywhere now.
Train recorded California 37 in San Francisco and Los Angeles with Butch Walker and Espionage producing.
Released as a digital download in January, "Drive By" has become Train's latest bona fide international sensation and is top 5 across the world and #1 in Germany, Netherlands, Finland, India, New Zealand and Switzerland. In the US the record reached top 10 at iTunes and #13 on the Billboard Hot 100. "Drive By" has already sold over 1.5 downloads worldwide.
"Drive By" continues to climb America's radio charts and has entered the Top 10 at both the AAA and HOT AC formats, selling more than 1 million copies since its release. The "Drive By" video premiered on February 18 on VH1, where it has gone into rotation, with support from VEVO.
Train's "Drive By," as well as "Hey, Soul Sister," were featured on an episode of "90210," originally broadcast on March 13, 2012.
Also, in a first, Shazam exclusively streamed California 37 to 200 million fans of their wildly popular mobile application a week prior to street date. Preorder sales of the album exploded at online and digital retailers alongside Shazam-enabled TV commercials running the entire week driving to the stream on shows including The Voice and Biggest Loser with partner Brita.
Train will launch its new album with "California 37," a brand-new Cabernet Sauvignon from the Save Me, San Francisco Wine Company. The much-anticipated third varietal from the acclaimed craft winery, "California 37" is a worthy addition to previous varietals, "Drops of Jupiter" (Petite Syrah) and "Calling All Angels" (Chardonnay). A portion of the proceeds from the varietal will go to the San Francisco charity Family House, which provides temporary housing to families of seriously ill children.

Train's lead singer, Pat Monahan recently made a memorable appearance singing "Marry Me," as a duet with Martina McBride for the on-air nuptials of a New Jersey couple during the 47th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards (aired Sunday, April 1).
Train just finished a round of live shows in San Francisco, part a special hometown run of intimate club shows that began on April 10 at Café Du Nord and finished on April 15 at the Fillmore. In addition, Barry Zito, three-time all star and Cy Young award-winning pitcher for the San Francisco Giants, joined Train onstage during their last San Francisco show at the Fillmore.
The multi-platinum band Train made its mark on music history with the Grammy Award-winning song "Drops of Jupiter (Tell Me)" and chart-topping singles like "Meet Virginia" and "Calling All Angels," earning its third Grammy in 2011 for the worldwide smash "Hey, Soul Sister" from Save Me, San Francisco. The top-selling single of 2010, "Hey, Soul Sister" hit #1 at radio in the US and in 15 countries abroad. Save Me, San Francisco has sold over one million albums worldwide and over ten million tracks.
