New Idiot Pilot Songs

posted by on August 7 at 14:10 PM

Idiot Pilot, the Bellingham duo/recently turned trio (they’ve supposedly added a live drummer) who took screamo to a new level in 2004 via laptop and heavily programmed tunes a la Radiohead and Muse, have posted a new song from their yet-to-be-released album Wolves on their Myspace.

The new album (dropping like it’s hot September 25th) was produced by Ross Robinson and Blink-182/+44’s Mark Hoppus. It also features drumming by Hoppus’s Blink bandmate Travis Barker and Dillenger Escape Plan’s Chris Pennie. It’s being released on Reprise.

The song is a lot more approachable and tighter than their earlier tracks (which got a little sloppy at times), and the production (as you’d imagine) is huge—slick and bright, but still really bombastic.

The band had another new song on the Transformers soundtrack which featured Linkin Park, Smashing Pumpkins, and Disturbed.

Now here’s the video for their song “A Day in the Life of a Poolshark,” where they (Michael Harris and Daniel Anderson) beat each other up.

Is screamo slang for whiny, suburban white kids with terrible hair cuts?

Yes.

Ryan from Lands Farther East is now their live drummer. Haven't gotten a change to see them live with the expanded line up yet.

Definitely looking forward to seeing them with the drummer. But that video doesn't do the track any justice, and their debut was pretty darn good. They totally blew me away at the EMP Sound-Off's a couple of years ago..
