Train is getting ready to release a new album that’s actually an old Led Zeppelin album.
No – not that train…the band ‘Train’. They’ve recorded a cover of the entire “Led Zeppelin II” album, which they’re calling “Does Led Zeppelin II,” to be released June 3rd.
“Our favorite band is Led Zeppelin, and they made a huge impression on our lives musically, so I thought, why don’t we record one of their albums, just for the fun of it for our fans. The hard part was deciding which one.” Just in case you were wondering, that’s a quote from frontman Pat Monahan and NOT Thomas the tank engine.
Train has also set up a series of concert dates to perform the album live, including a June 1st gig at New York’s Irving Plaza. They will also appear on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on June 10th.
Train “Does Led Zeppelin II” tour dates:
- June 1 New York, NY, Irving Plaza
- June 6 Los Angeles, CA, Troubadour
- June 8 Seattle, WA, Neumos
- June 14 San Francisco, CA, Great American Music Hall
