Ex-Pantera REX BROWN Debuts New Single ‘Train Song’ Off Forthcoming Album[Official Music Video]

One of the most noted and famous heavy metal bassist of all time Rex Brown who is known to one and all as former Pantera member has chosen to go solo like many others in the business. The multi platinum selling artist has debuted a new single titled, ‘Train Song‘, exclusively via Loudwire, from his all new upcoming studio album, ‘Smoke On This…‘, which also happens to be his first as a solo artist. Directed by Justin Reich (Zakk Wylde, Ace Frehley), this is the first music video being released from Brown’s debut. ‘Train Song‘ is preceded by ‘Crossing Lines’, which dropped sometime around late April. Rex Brown will release ‘Smoke On This…‘ on July 28th, 2017 via Entertainment One Music (eOne Music).

“It was a frickin’ blast working on this with Justin,” says Brown. “I always hated the sitting around and waiting mentality, but Justin and his crew made it incredibly easy and very productive! This first video shows a ton of power and Justin captured it all with no hesitation.” 

Shot in Nashville, TN, also where the album was recorded and produced, you can see Lance Harvill, who also co-wrote most of the LP with Brown playing the lead guitar, Joe Shadid on the rhythm guitar and longtime friend of Brown’s and Type O Negative member Johnny Kelly playing drums. Caleb Sherman can be seen on Keys and lap steel as well in the video. All of them who are also bandmates with Rex. This can be a surprise for fans as Rex also debuts singing on the album, something Pantera fans and others alike have never witnessed. The song “Fault Line” helped him find his voice, to which he adds,

That was the very first one I sang. After I got that one, I knew that I could do it, and Lance was my biggest motivator in finding that voice. Up until that point I just wasn’t sure.” 

Drums were tracked by Christopher Williams, who is known for a wide ranges of genre tastes. The album was produced by New Yorker turned Nashville transplant Caleb Sherman, a multi-instrumentalist with work on records by Little Big Town and Porter Block, among others.

“Caleb produced the project from a musician’s standpoint,” adds Brown. “Not just a typical producer’s standpoint, which was something I definitely needed. Between Caleb and Lance, we were a force to be reckoned with. They really pulled out the best in me.”
