Blind Pilot Announce Summer Tour

Are you going to Lollapalooza this year? Here’s a great option to add to your lineup!
Portland, Oregon-based band Blind Pilot, following two sold-out national tours in support of their sophomore album, We Are The Tide, will continue to tour relentlessly this summer, making festival stops at Newport Folk, Firefly, and Lollapalooza, as well as supporting My Morning Jacket and Band of Horses.  This is all following dates supporting The Shins and Dave Matthews Band and festival appearances at Sasquatch! and Bonnaroo.
We Are The Tide follows the band’s grassroots break-out debut, 3 Rounds and a Sound, which has sold over 65,000 units to date and was featured in NPR’s “Best Music of 2008” roundup. Recorded at Type Foundry in Portland, OR during the spring of 2011, the new album was produced by the band and Skyler Norwood and mixed by Tucker Martine (The Decemberists, My Morning Jacket).  Of making the album, founding member Israel Nebeker says, “We had a good idea of what we wanted the album to sound like and what all the instrumentation would be. There was excitement and anticipation but that came with a fair amount of challenges for me as the songwriter, since I had never written in that atmosphere before. Fortunately, the creative process has a way of obliterating your expectations, and while we had a plan for each song, eventually the songs told us the way they needed to be. We learned a whole lot in the process and when I listen to the album now, I hear all these good surprises we didn’t know were going to be on there.” Co-founding member Ryan Dobrowski goes on to say, “I love the first record, but it was really exciting to work on arrangements with the whole band in mind. There are some songs on We Are The Tide that sound like an extension of 3 Rounds and a Sound, but a good number that are exploring new areas.”
