Seventrain was founded by players from 24-7 Spyz, Cage, Tall, and Tourniquet, including Eric Horton (former Cage guitarist) and drummer Joel Maitoza (24-7 Spyz, Shockhead), along with singer Jon Campos (Tourniquet, Dive Bomber), guitarist Jef Poremba (Tall, Coffi Baker, 6ONE9), and bassist Steve Andino (Tourniquet). They play raw, stripped down, blues-based hard rock.
The band's first performance in Autumn 2012 was at a San Diego memorial show for the late Vincent John Crudo, (otherwise known as “Big Vinnie”), a local sound technician and bass player, where they performed several cover songs. Guitarist Horton and vocalist Campos decided to record songs they'd been working on, recruiting former 24-7 Spyz drummer Maitoza to produce and play drums on the album, along with guitarist Poremba and bassist Greg Rupp (My Middle Finger, 6ONE9), who
appeared on the CD but was replaced by Andino shortly after the recording of the album.
Recorded in early 2013 at DML Studios with engineer Don Lithgow (Blink 182, New Found Glory, Finch) tracked in analog on 2-inch tape, their debut self-titled full-length was released in February 2014 via So Cal Records/Alliance Entertainment.
