The Pilot Trilogy: Chapter 2

The return of The Pilot and Virgil! Our heroes wander lost amid a dying world after the events of Bring Down the Sky. They begin their search for a new home, unknowingly stalked all the while by a dark and sisnister demigod with a host of Simulacra at its command.

Being Human has been an intense labor of love over the past two years. It is an experiment in new instrumentation, new sounds, and new (to us) ways of recording. Engineered and recorded live by our friend Jason Sissoyev (Coastlands), and mastered by TW Walsh, this record is a blend of post-rock, hardcore, and Midwest emo and is, by far, our most dynamic and adventurous release to date.

“ I, for one, am incredibly excited to hear the full album when it drops. Stay tuned for more news as one of the best contemporary, American post-rock bands returns.”
