Banner Pilot Hitting the Studio Soon

Posted by - 03:18 PM on 09/27/13
Banner Pilot will start working on the follow-up to Heart Beats Pacific next month.
In early October, we will be heading into the studio to record our 4th full length record. We couldn’t be more excited to work with Jacques Wait, at The Terrarium in Minneapolis, just as we did on Collapser and Heart Beats Pacific. (OK, technically, yes, we could be “more excited”—- if the studio had a trampoline or something, we would probably be slightly more excited, but suffice to say we are VERY excited as-is).
We have 12 new songs and I think/hope we’ve struck the right balance between the extremes of “Do exactly what you did on your other albums” and “Completely re-invent yourselves”. I think the new songs are a little different. but in a good, natural way. One example is that on previous records, the rhythm guitars were doing power chords probably 95% of the time. This time around, it’s more like 70%. But it’s not like the other 30% is ska, or polka, or whatever—the changes should be noticable, but not jarring. Hopefully, the average listener will think, “You know, this sounds a little different, but I can still tell it’s Banner Pilot”, as opposed to, “Oh my god, what are these idiots trying to do?” We’ll see, but I think people will dig it.
Once the album comes out, we’re hoping to hit up some of our favorite spots in the US, maybe get back to Europe, maybe get over to somewhere new like Japan. We all can’t wait to get some new music out there, and then go and play it for all of you (or at least those of you who happen to be within a reasonable proximity to the geographic areas we perform said music in).

Got into this band not too long ago, and they're awesome. Stoked to hear this. Lots of awesome punk records in the works lately, and that makes me very happy.

Really like Banner Pilot. I hope this will be a great album from start to finish. Their records tend to run out of steam toward the end.

Heart Beats Pacific was incredible. The chorus on Spanish Reds hasn't left my head since the first time I heard it. Absolutely can't wait for this.

Or how he was talking about the trampoline. Right?
