Grammy Award-winning band Train is gearing up for their San Francisco 2012 Tour, a special hometown run of club shows, in expectation of their upcoming album CALIFORNIA 37, out April 17. The band kicks off six intimate performances in SF starting April 10 at Café Du Nord and finishing up April 15 at the Fillmore. A portion of the ticket sales proceeds will go to the San Francisco charity Family House, which provides temporary housing to families of seriously ill children. Train referenced their commitment to the bay area and their fans where they began their illustrious career in 2009’s multiplatinum album, SAVE ME, SAN FRANCISCO. Full list of dates below. The band is also revealing the CALIFORNIA 37 cover art on trainline.com today (and attached here).
The first single from CALIFORNIA 37, “Drive By,” continues to climb the radio charts and has already entered the Top 10 at both the AAA and HOT AC formats. It is also charting at Top 40 and moving up quickly. “Drive By” has sold over 200,000 singles since its release in January.

The multiplatinum band TRAIN made its mark on music history with their GRAMMY-Award-winning song “Drops of Jupiter (Tell Me)” and chart-topping singles “Meet Virginia” and “Calling All Angels.” Train earned their third GRAMMY in 2011 for the worldwide smash “Hey Soul Sister” from SAVE ME, SAN FRANCISCO. “Hey Soul Sister” was the biggest selling single of 2010 and hit #1 at radio in the US and in 15 countries abroad.
