It's been a long time since we've heard anything from Blind Pilot. A very long time. The local folk act first rode into our hearts with their stunning 3 Rounds And A Sound debut and penchant for touring by bicycle, but their sophomore recording was delayed. And then delayed even further. There were rumors of record label drama, writer's block, recording sessions in an Astoria tree house, flat bicycle tires (totally made this one up), and it seemed like a follow-up recording might never surface.
That is until the band just announced the arrival of We Are the Tide, which will be out on September 13. The above teaser video offers a few snippets of what is to come, and it sounds quite promising. September can't come soon enough.
End Hits: ...and yet when my band tours on rollerblades, no one cares.
