[InnocentWords.com] If rock ‘n’ roll kept a statistics sheet, like in baseball, the numbers for Traindodge would be impressive: 14 years as a band, five full-length albums, four EPs and several compilation credits to date. These post punk rockers have also played over 500 shows covering 38 states and two continents.
