The Midnight Ghost Train Announce East Coast Dates

When last we left Kansan power blues three-piece The Midnight Ghost Train, they were wrapping up a West Coast tour, getting ready for guitarist/vocalist Steve Moss to undergo surgery for two — count ’em, two — rock hernias, and preparing to his the road thereafter in Europe. That European run included stops at Hellfest and Stoned from the Underground and has now come to an end, Moss having busted his picking hand in the meantime, but if The Midnight Ghost Train could be stopped, they would’ve been stopped long ago. A series of dates up and down the East Coast and in the Midwest have been announced for next month and Sept.

They continue to support their third album and Napalm Records debut, Cold was the Ground (review here), and that album continues to be a cause worthy of support. Here’s a post-tour update from the band and those dates from the PR wire:

“Well the tour has come to an end. Stoned From The Underground Festival was an excellent way to put an end to the tour. We are ready to go home. Many of you don’t know this but Steve has been playing this entire tour with a broken right hand (his picking hand), our families miss us, and we really need to shower, so it’s time to go home for now. But we will return. Thank you to all the fans who came out and rocked with us, thank you to all the venues and promoters who put things together, thank you to Kat, Matte and Beth at Sound of Liberation for getting the ball in play for this tour. We did EXACTLY what we came here to do… Play Rock and Roll. I know damn well we made our presence known.”
