Ottawa band Sleeping Pilot is preparing to record its first studio album, but before they hunt down a studio, producer, and label, the five-piece will return to the stage. The hard-rock band has eight performances confirmed for the next few months, most of them taking place in Ottawa.
Sleeping Pilot will also attempt to woo the border guards and hop down to the United States for shows in Maryland and New Jersey. Not leaving out Quebec, the quartet will play gigs in Montreal and Sherbrooke on August 11th and 12th.
Although it has yet to release a proper album, Sleeping Pilot put together its own mini-sampler earlier this year. The demo album, presumably available at the band's summer shows, contains just two songs, but it's probably enough to win over fans of Alexisonfire and the like. Check out "Above the Earth" and "Crime Scenery" at myspace.com/sleepingpilot.
