VIDEO PREMIERE: Topeka's The Midnight Ghost Train debut "Red Eyed Junkie Queen"

Hey folks I’m not Dororthy and we’re not in Kansas, but just like her trusty companion Toto, the ever reliable riff masters, Topeka’s THE MIDNIGHT GHOST TRAIN rolls again like a tornado strike, catapulting listeners to blissed out aural wonderland, with another cavalcade of distorted guitars and gravely vocals. Yes folks, follow the yellow riff road, because fans of their dusty, fuzzy tones, pounding rhythms, snarling vocals, and most of all, their passionate delivery rejoice,because their fourth opus titled 'Cypress Ave.' is set to be released July 28th 2017 on Napalm Records, and will surely become their most diverse and suprising album to date: Never before has THE MIDNIGHT GHOST TRAIN shown this side of themselves. Their new album 'Cypress Ave.' proves that they 're not just another rock band, they're explorers, risk takers, and true artists. This is not a departure, but an expansion, and will please both old and new fans alike.

Now THE MIDNIGHT GHOST TRAIN premiere their first music video for the track 'Red Eyed Junkie Queen', taken from the band's upcoming album 'Cypress Ave
which you can check out below.  But before you do, here is what vocalist & guitarist Steve Moss had to say about the track.  Can you dig it?!

"This video is a way to show fans what it's like inside the studio with us, a sort of behind the scenes video. We took some cameras into the studio, and just shot random acts, and different pieces of the process over the course of the two weeks we were in there. Believe it or not, this is by far the heaviest song on the album. The driving heaviness of it it just seemed to fit the feel of working in the studio."

'Cypress Ave'  will hit the streets on July 28th and will be available on CD, LP Gatefold + Digital Download via Napalm Recordsand make no mistake it is an absolute must for every blues- and rock fan. Be prepared, because THE MIDNIGHT GHOST TRAIN are about to return with their most diverse and uniquely sounding album to date!
