Brooklyn’s Pilot To Gunner returns with its fourth full-length album, Hail Hallucinator (Arctic Rodeo Recordings/Thirtysomething Records), and may only exist because the members of the band were locked indoors during the pandemic. Also, this is also the band’s first album in a decade.
With Hail Hallucinator, for a third go-around, the band recorded with J. Robbins (Jawbox), with the band’s sound fully realized and returning back to basics. The album is expected to be released August 12, 2022. In the meantime, the band shares “Drop The Sun,” the first single off the release. Those familiar with the group will note the sonic diversity of the band’s guitar interplay, gruff vocal delivery and dynamically shifting rhythm.
