The Story So Far
We are Pilot Run, a three-piece rock band from Colchester in the UK.
Craig, Matt and I started playing together in high school, and gigged extensively around Essex in our previous bands, Street Light Youth and Fervours. Our highlight was securing a slot at Download Festival in 2006!
We spent a long time apart when the bands split. But I'd been quietly writing some songs and decided it was time to start a new project, so in 2018 enlisted Craig on drums and Matt on bass to record Pilot Run's debut tracks, Ghost of Me and To a Spark.
Ghost of Me was dubbed 'the ultimate anthem of alt rock angst' by A&R Factory, and Rock the Pigeon Music Blog claimed that it will 'have you running for your ex.'
We were excited to be back in the rehearsal room again, so we soon began working on new, collaborative material, which we released as a five-track EP titled 'Faces Are Hard to Find' on 29th January 2021. The EP was recorded at Tom Donovan Studios and explores both the heavier and softer side of our sound.
Recording Artists Guild have hailed the EP as 'an outstanding alt-rock masterpiece', while A&R Factory have described our lead track, 'Haunted Head', as 'an anthem to the lost who need to be found.'
