Radiation, Weather, Art is the sprawling masterwork of Eugene Brown, a transplant from Kentucky. Instantly captivating, (die) Pilot's inaugural disc finds Brown and company infusing quietly meditative songs with interstellar bursts of ambience. If Mark Kozelek reimagined the work of Mazzy Star as filtered through vintage Floyd, it might sound something like this. - Westword

Bio

(die) PILOT originated in the Northern Kentucky / Ohio area as an accoustic folk duo between singer/ songwriter Eugene Brown and guitarist Justin Wright.

Eventually, Brown moved to Denver where he completed the band with an array of musicians whose influences range from folk to experimental noise. The result is a band that delivers a very high-impact show that takes the audience on an emotional invested journey with the band members, who play as though they were men wrongly sentenced to death yet still retaining joy and the knowledge of the smallest beauty that surrounds them.

In 2006 after the release of their first album, "Radiation, Weather, Art", they were voted Denver's Best up-and-coming band by the city's acclaimed Westword. They have continued their dedication to creating music that is at once familiar, yet startlingly wonderful.

Their new album, "Mutiny", was made this past year through various line-up changes and a host of set-backs but it remains one of the most highly anticipated releases by any of the local bands. They have pushed forward musically from the ambient folk epic "RWA", and continue to play many critically acclaimed shows. The band is ready to take that big step from being local critic darlings to a band known and appreciated for the quality music it creates.

With a line-up that is fully dedicated the possibilities of what music can and should be, (die) Pilot is on the forefront of music. Be it Ennio Morricone influenced sambas, restrained singer/songwriter numbers backed by slide-guitar and tasteful violin, dance infused rock numbers, or the most gloriously beautiful and inspiring pop tune one would ever hear, (die) Pilot is a band for all seasons who constantly test themselves and the limits of all styles.

Their new album, "Mutiny", reflects this. It is the result of disparate musicians coming together to create something they all can be proud of.

The band is in the currently in the studio mastering a new EP of over 40 minutes of new music that will be released in Dec. 2008

(die) PILOT has been compared to bands like Bright Eyes, Arcade Fire and Wilco but they still emerge with their own identity intact. Some of the great bands that they have had the opportunity to share the stage with are, but not limited to Wovenhand, Augie March, The Avett Brothers, The Lilys, Born In The Flood, Porlolo, The Photo Atlas, Tokyo Police Club, Meese, Asobi Sesku, Shearwater and most of Denver's finest local acts.
