It's okay....not very melodic though.  I kept waiting for a chorus and none really ever happened.

Still a decent rocking tune.  I'll probably keep eyes on this but not sure it'll be something I purchase.

From Frontiers:

BREAKING NEWS: BURNING RAIN, a hard rock band founded by guitarist extraordinaire Doug Aldrich (Revolution Saints, The Dead Daisies, ex-Whitesnake/David Coverdale, Ronnie James Dio) and vocalist Keith St John(Montrose - Band, Kingdom Come), are pleased to announce the release of their fourth studio album, "Face the Music" on March 22, 2019.

In conjunction with the album announcement, the band have shared the latest single, “Midnight Train,” along with an accompanying music video. When asked why the band chose to release “Midnight Train” as the first single, Aldrich explained, “when we were asked what song encompasses the sound of BURNING RAIN, ‘Midnight Train’ seemed like a good choice. It sounds fresh and heavy, but still sounds like us. Everyone will have different ideas about favorite songs and there are a number of tracks that could have been first, but we just went with ‘Midnight Train.’”

“’Midnight Train's' message, albeit fully ensconced in carnality, is about wanting something so brutally bad when you can't have it,” added St. John. “The main character here is basically a deeply tortured soul during all the daytime hours. The phallic likening to the train and its track along with the blackness, the bed of nails, and the cravings of the night are meant to further fortify the extremity of sexual addiction. Doug had all the basic music together including bass, drums, and all when he first played me a demo of the riff. I loved it immediately. The first ex-perimental vocal track I scatted out had the basic framework for the chorus, which we both felt had good potential, but the original verse began with a higher, bluesier part that seemed to not quite fit. After I fashioned a new verse with a lower, more growly approach, we both felt it really complimented the chorus and we knew this track was in good standing!”

BURNING RAIN was established in 1998 by guitarist Doug Aldrich and vocalist Keith St. John. After meeting through mutual friends, Aldrich and St. John commenced work on what would eventually become their self-titled debut album. The 1999 record established BURNING RAIN as a hungry yet seasoned group of musicians. Although the album was limited in its release, it did receive rave reviews from fans and critics alike for their take on heavy, blues-y hard rock. The following year, BURNING RAIN released the follow up, “Pleasure To Burn” which showed a matured Aldrich-St John collaboration that gained even higher praise than the first album.

In 2001, Aldrich joined DIO and later departed in 2003 as he was approached by David Coverdale to join a newly reformed Whitesnake, while St. John joined forces with guitar legend Ronnie Montrose. While still in Whitesnake, Aldrich started working on new BURNING RAIN music, which saw the light of day in 2013 as the album “Epic Obsession”. Their third release was again met with enthu-siams from fans and critics alike. Aldrich would later leave Whitesnake and join The Dead Daisies and Revolution Saints, which left BURNING RAIN on an extended hiatus.

Now, finally a new album is ready for release! Face the Music is a blues driven hard rock record which is truly a tour-de-force. With a renewed lineup featuring the amazing Blas Elias (SLAUGHTER) on drums and bassist Brad Lang (Y&T), the album evokes the sound of the classic 70’s hard rock scene, but also stays true to the Burning Rain sound.

One thing is for certain, BURNING RAIN has made the wait for new music well worth it.

the new song is a bit average to me and I'd have trimmed off at least 45 seconds as it seems to drag on too long

I like both songs so far, will check out the album. I wasn't aware it's been 6 years since their last album I thought they had released at least one other album in the meantime

New song is just OK for me.  Doug and Keith sound as good as ever, but the songs just don't seem as catchy as the prior releases.  I'm still looking forward to hearing the full album though and hopefully I'll be pleasantly surprised

Really liking the sound of this one....getting a bit of a Whitesnake vibe on that second song...not a bad thing IMO...

I enjoyed all three tracks but agree that none are classics. I still look forward to the full album and love the majority of Frontiers releases.

    • I don't think grunge had anything to do with their demise as they split up in 1987, way before grunge came along. I really don't think they were ever considered a flash in the pan either, as the band had existed in some form or another since the mid 1970s, and they got their first taste of success in the UK in 82/83, and in fact it was the humourous videos that got them their foothold in their native country (the songs were certainly not humourous). Their biggest problem as that Stay hungry was such a huge hit that people felt Come out and play was a step backwards, and the band was already in turmoil by then. MTV refusing to play the Be chrool to your scuel, video. Poor concert ticket sales. And then AJ up and quit at the end of the tour. Their biggest problem was that it took them so long to finally break through that by the time they did, the age old trope of band in fighting became their downfall. I remember several interviews when Dee was promoting Widowmaker, and he was incredibly harsh about the rest of TS. Claiming they had no talent and their idea of back vocals was just shouting etc. I am a big fan of Dee, but I can imagine his big personality can be a lot to deal with in real life, and he certainly took over creative control of TS which probably pissed off the guys who were in the band before he ever joined.
    • Heard this today,it starts off well,the first few tracks are pretty good and Richard Black sounds well...but its downhill for me from about track 5 or 6 and I can't really recall the last couple as they passed me by due to my initial disappointment 
    • Hmmm sounds interestin.
    • Apart from a song here and there, mostly no.
    • I grew up in Maryland laws in that state were crazy, I remember a rain tax there not long ago
    • I dont get the hype for Steel Panther they are like a bad 80s tribute band 
    • I grew up in Maryland used to see shows at Network that later turned into Daytona then when I was old enough Hammerjacks in Baltimore, Frederick had big metal rock scene too I think it still does this is a great blog for metal in MD,dc and northern VA, https://dcheavymetal.com/
    • I liked the Clash, but for most part no
    • King Diamond The Spider's Lullabye on vinyl lp remaster Slayer Seasons of the Abyss on cd Iron Maiden greatest hits cd 2008 Judas Priest Sin after Sin and Ram it Down on cd
