While there are plenty of moments that remind you of a band or song from the past, the group's influences run deeper and into the likes of CCR/John Fogerty, Bon Jovi, John Mellencamp, and even the heartland music of Bruce Springsteen. While nothing on the EP is necessarily new or fresh, it is refreshing to see that someone is out there keeping the classics alive in a new format. Not only is 308 Ghost Train releasing quality and enjoyable material, but they are also opening a gateway for new listeners to discover a great era of rock and roll. If you're tired of the same rock and roll that's constantly played, 308 Ghost Train may be just the change you're looking for. Their new music with a link to the past could provide just the boost you need. I'd certainly recommend a listen to the Born in the Wild EP if you're a fan of 70s and 80s rock and roll.- Review date: 10/6/20, written by Michael Weaver of Jesusfreakhideout.com

Anthony "Train" Caruso: The band came together from a vision that came to me one night in early March of 2019. I was in a really dark place in my life and was contemplating giving up on life altogether. That night the Ghost gave me the beginnings of a song in my sleep, "I maybe worn but I'm holding on" -- later titled "Worn." That song saved my life and was a direct message that spoke to my purpose. I've never looked back since that day.
Train: It was definitely something I was led to while searching for the band name.
Train: There's a pretty big group of people who are disenfranchised with the spoon feeding of pop and calling it rock. People long for the sounds that remind them of the greatest times in their lives. We seem to be ringing that chord for them. 308 Ghost Train is becoming more of a movement than a band.
Train: These songs mean the world to me. "21 Guns" allowed me to pay homage to all military, law enforcement, and first responders. Being an 11-year, honorably discharged veteran, I truly can identify with the sacrifice that is made for freedom. "This is My Home" was my fight song anthem to everyone battling cancer. My hope is that it will instill that "never quit" mentality that leads them to survive.
Train: Probably "21 Guns and a Million Tears"
Train: Well, our first single off that EP, "Bleed Over Me," shot us through the roof with 11.8 million streams that ultimately brought us to over 41 million streams across all songs in the last 4 months. 2 songs - "Bleed Over Me" and "Love You More" - have been released ("Love You More" drops on Tuesday Oct. 13) on that EP and they can be found on Spotify and Soundcloud.
Train: I kind of have to chuckle at that question, because I can't remember a time when GOD wasn't carrying me. So my ride has been blessed even in the midst of a global pandemic.
