Classic Americana Rock Band Karson City Rebels Set To Release New Single "Runaway Train"
New York, NY (Top40 Charts) LA-based Karson City Rebels has announced the scheduled release of its newest single "Runaway Train."* Spotlighting complex guitar riffs, soulful harmonica solos and gritty vocals brought together to create a quintessential classic sound, the fiery track will be available Friday, May 3, 2024 via all digital retail and streaming outlets with the presale/pre-save event beginning April 19. (Digital retail and streaming services headed by Ed Gertler/Digital Retail Services.)
Written by the band's frontrunner, Gil Karson, and produced by Karson and Gerhard Joost, the opening riff masterfully leads into Karson's stark vocals intensified by a face-melting guitar solo, vamped in the jam-band bridge and enlivened by haunting train horn harmonies at the conclusion. Passionate, tell-all lyrics reveal a vulnerable admission and head-over-heels desperation: "My heart is poundin' full speed, I'm ready to jump the track, like a runaway train, my love for you is like a runaway train,''

Lyrical metaphors throughout create a symbolism that correlates with the imagery portrayed by "full-throttle" instrumentation and production.Driving drum and bass lines ramp to mirror the "anticipation" duly complemented by lead vocals and guitar licks to depict the raw and honest juxtaposition of juggling emotions between love and lust.

"It's a true story. I was pursuing an intimate relationship with a gal who was not making it easy, and she seemed to rather enjoy teasing me. The song roared out of me just like a 'Runaway Train;' it wrote itself," said Karson, "I'm pumped beyond words to release the recording; let's open the throttle full-wide and let it roll."

Recorded at Sal Rodriguez's Studio in LA, "Runaway Train" is jam-packed with intricate melodies and vocal qualities assembled with LIVE studio instrumentation to create an edgy, one-of-a-kind soundscape. The single is the first in the band's 2024 waterfall series of single releases as an introduction to the EP, titled DRIVIN', due in mid-to-late September.

Karson City Rebels delivers a stoked retro blend of Americana-rock, blues and Bakersfield sound to the music scene. Led by Gil Karson (lead singer), Karson formed the group following a sabbatical to focus on raising his family and embarking on a successful career in film direction and production to "answer the call" to return to his inherited love-music and live performance.

Made up of multi-instrumentalist Jon Adams, guitarists Kyle Appleton and Chris Brooks, Brian Burwell (on drums), and Jon Greathouse (on keyboards and vocals), the newly organized six-member triple threat group has worked alongside Grammy-winning producer Gerhard Joost (Stevie Wonder, Missy Elliot, Sangeet) at Studio Hill Austin and recorded at Sal Rodriguez's Studio in LA.
