Steel Train to Reunite at Jack Antonoff’s Shadow of the City Festival in New Jersey
Bleachers' Jack Antonoff has announced the second installment of his annual Shadow of the City music festival with the 1975 as headliners, but there will also be a very special reunion. Antonoff's first band, Steel Train, will perform together for the first time since 2013.
Other performers announced for the festival taking place June 18 in Seaside Heights, NJ include Carly Rae Jepsen, BØRNS, Bishop, FRNKIERO ANDTHE CELLABRATION, Shamir, and HANA.
Antonoff said in a press release:
Really couldn't be more thrilled to announce year two of Shadow Of The City. I grew up hanging around on the seaside boardwalk and to put the festival there this year is completely far out. Also, proud to expand it beyond something that I headline every year. With that said, it's always something I want to be involved in so getting Steel Train back together for one show felt perfect. The idea behind SOTC is to bring a music festival to the shadow of the city – a place filled with music fans who have to travel to the bigger city to see a lot of live music 'cause their town gets skipped over. Year two gives me such joy because it makes me feel like we are really going to keep doing this."
Steel Train formed in 2002 and released three albums through their self-titled 2010 album. If you don't recognize Antonoff, he's also in the indie group fun. and won Grammys last month for his work with Taylor Swift on 1989.
