DETAILS ABOUT THE NEW EP


The lead single from the new Three O'Clock Train EP Cuatro de Los Ángeles will be produced by punk rock legend Tony Kinman, founding member with brother Chip Kinman of 70's California punk rock The Dils and 80's Texas cowpunk Rank and File.

Cuatro de Los Ángeles
will feature three original Three O'Clock Train songs and a brand new version of the 1982 Rank and File song "Lucky Day". This tribute is the result of a special collaboration between Mack MacKenzie and Chip Kinman during a 2016 tour with Three O'Clock Train and Chip's band Ford Madox Ford.

Other collaborators on the new EP include Dewey Peek from Ford Madox Ford and The Katellas, as well as Johnny Witmer from The Crazy Squeeze and The Snitches.

MACK MACKENZIE NORTH AMERICAN SOLO TOUR 2017


Mack kicked off his North American Solo Tour in April 2017 with a great performance of Three O'Clock Train featuring Shane Murphy on guitar, Alec McElcheran on bass and Tony Albino on drums at the Fairmount Theatre in Montreal.

Mack then hit the road for a series of live performances across Canada and the USA. He played the opening night of the Listuguj 25th Annual Traditional Pow Wow and performed with Three O'Clock Train in support of the Native Women's Shelter of Montreal at Cabot Square, featuring Jonathan Cummins, Alec McElcheran and Tony Albino.

Author Geoff Moore describes in this recent article a "magical night" in Edmonton "where the attraction was Mack MacKenzie of Three O'Clock Train, a legendary Montreal band for whom I have an enduring affection". A recent interview with Mack regarding the recording sessions can be found on the music blog The Delete Bin.

ABOUT THREE O'CLOCK TRAIN

Formed in Montreal, Quebec in 1984, Three O'Clock Train was initially described as "Dark Country" born of Film Noir and Punk Rock angst. In 1986 they released their debut E.P. Wig Wam Beach, followed with the critically acclaimed L.P. Muscle In in 1987 and It takes a lot to laugh, it takes a train to cry B.D. in 1991.

A respected tunesmith, bandleader Mack MacKenzie was called "one of the best songwriters this city has produced" by the weekly entertainment 'zine Montreal Mirror and John Griffin, long time music critic of the Montreal Gazette once wrote "What makes Three O'Clock Train different is that Mack MacKenzie writes songs like he has to."

In 2012 after an extended hiatus, Mack dusted off Three O'Clock Train and decided it was time to make some music. The result was a full-length recording entitled Moon. The L.P. opens with the song "Stolen Thunder" a moving tribute to fellow Montrealer Alex Soria. Alex was a brilliant songwriter and frontman of the melodic punk band The Nils who committed suicide and whose life and art left an indelible mark on all that encountered him. The track once again showed that Mack was not afraid to tackle the tough subjects when it came to songwriting.


In 2016 Mack took a moment to look back at his body of work with Producer Steve Kravac. The two collaborated on the Train of Dreams E.P. featuring four of the best songs Mack has ever written. They've been given a respectful re-thinking and a new sound that propels them from scrappy punk influenced numbers to polished modern productions.


In 2017 the long awaited reissue of Three O'Clock Train's third album It takes a lot to laugh, it takes a train to cry B.D. from 1991 was made available for the first time since 2000.


Sessions for the new Three O'Clock Train EP Cuatro de Los Ángeles are completed, including a very special collaboration with Chip Kinman and producer Tony Kinman. Support Mack's NEW project NOW and be one of the first fans to receive the next Three O'Clock Train EP!
