We’re driving through a drizzle on I-95S, Charleston-bound after finishing up 2012’s busy year of touring with a few dates around the southeast. Thanks to all our friends, family, and fans in Atlanta, Asheville, Isle of Palms, Athens, Winston-Salem, and Raleigh for coming out to the shows. We had a blast sharing those stages our pals in Dangermuffin and Tab Benoit, and the musical collaborations and backstage hilarity were inspiring.
We have some time off over the holiday season to spend time with loved ones, play some music with our side projects, and reflect on the busy year ahead of us. We’d like to invite you to celebrate the arrival of the new year with us at the Charleston Pour House. Heck, come for the whole year-end weekend and enjoy some other great bands playing at the Pour House.
12/28 Perpetual Groove and Old You
12/29 Dangermuffin and American Aquarium
12/30 Mama’s Love and Gaslight Street

When we get back from the Virgin Islands, we’ll be releasing our new album, Underdog. Some of you who supported our Kickstarter fund-raising effort may have already received your advance copy. If you didn’t help us kickstart this thing, you’ll have to wait until Feb.5th, 2013 when the album will be available for sale online and through local record stores (just kidding, those don’t exist anymore). Or you can tune into Sirius/XM’s “Jam On” to hear our song “Lady from Chiang Mai” from the upcoming Underdog release. We’ll be supporting the new album with tour dates stretching from Texas to NYC in the first quarter of next year. Save the date: Feb.22, 2013 CD Release party in Charleston. Stay tuned for an exciting announcement about the wonderful venue will be taking over for a Sol Driven Train CD Release Party!
Wishing you a happy, safe holiday season,
Joel, Ward, Russell, Rusty, and Wes
