The Train of Thought Tour has officially left the platform and will be steamrolling into the Quinsam Hotel Dec. 7.

Travelling from east to west on VIA Rail, JUNO nominee Ghettosocks, SOCAN award-winner Muneshine, hip-hop veteran Timbuktu and West Coast recording artist Jeff Spec are riding the rails on a month-long cross-Canada tour.

That’s how you travel when your tour is sponsored by VIA Rail.

“VIA Rail has been a proud supporter of Canadian artists and talent for many years, with our sponsoring of the Juno Awards. We are excited to sponsor the Train of Thought Tour and wish all the artists on-board much success in their future careers,” says Elaine McCulloch of VIA Rail.

As an added bonus, The Train of Thought artists have released a free downloadable mixtape (http://droppinscience.bandcamp.com/album/via-rail-presents-the-train-of-thought-tour-mixtape) showcasing one hour of their music for fans.

Tracks feature guest collaborations with D-Sisive, PH, Chokeules, Dminor, Shuanise and Saidah C., with production by Bix, Fresh Kils, Vinyl Frontiers, Jorun Bombay, M-Phazes, Impossible Nothing, Rich Kidd, and the Extremites.

“We wanted to give something back to our fans. We hope they will enjoy what we have in store for them in the mixtape, as well as the shows,” says Muneshine, who crafted the exclusive mix.
