Joel Maitoza: Former 24-7 SPYZ Drummer and Cage Guitarist Unveil New Band SEVENTRAIN

The San Diego, CA locals want to bring back that big rock sound with their hard-hitting, blues-based metal band Seventrain which features former Cage guitarist Eric Horton, guitarist Jef Poremba (6ONE9, Coffi Baker…yes, Ginger Baker’s son), vocalist Jon Campos (Dive Bomber), drummer Joel Maitoza (24-7 Spyz, Shockhead) and bassist Greg Rupp who appeared on the album, but was recently replaced by Steve (Dino) Andino (Tourniquet).

The band 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 their self-titled debut album in the US 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, 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 entire album is currently available for streaming on ReverbNation:
