We loved playing at Woodstock Poland because it was all about peace, love & family! Just like back in ’69.
This dude brought his daughter to see our show. CUTEST FAN EVER. Best dad ever too… If anyone knows who she is please hit us up. We wanna send her a t-shirt.
We’re only releasing 100 signed & individually numbered copies, so pre-order yours now at: bit.ly/1QSCtJR. They’re shipping on Oct 31st & every sale goes towards making our new album.
Sorry about the delay guys… It took us aaaages to chase up licenses for the 3 covers we played. Great news is Bob Dylan’s peeps gave our version of “All Along The Watchtower” the thumbs up! He’s extremely cool about artists covering his songs.
Sadly The Beatles’ publishers & Massive Attack didn’t reply to multiple emails, so Eleanor Rigby & Teardrop didn’t make the cut. Everything else is on there! Tracklist:
1. Faking This
2. The Piper’s Mirror
3. The Captain
4. Sex and TV
6. Animals in My Mind
8. Medicated Shell
9. All Along the Watchtower (Dylan / Hendrix cover)

Hey guys! We were blown away & humbled by your support & encouragement when we talked about crowdfunding our new album last week. So we’ve decided to do it!
Now we’re working out what rewards / perks to offer. Got any suggestions? Anything goes!
Just like Sugarcoated, we want to release it as a free download. So we’re thinking about a special digital version for supporters with acoustic b-sides & early access. We’ll have signed CDs, vinyls & t-shirts too.
Let us know if you have any other ideas.
Definitely the most pleasant police stop we’ve had in Europe… The one at the back played bad cop, the one at the front played good cop. Unfortunately no handcuffs were involved.
Hello friends! Greets from the mountains of Switzerland. Can’t believe it’s been 4 months since we arrived in Berlin to work on the new record!
It’s been an intense time- getting our new bass player up to speed, preparing for our “Live from The Basement” video shoot (more on that soon) & touring Europe.
Now that’s done, we finally can sink our teeth into pre-production. Starting Monday we’re in studio lockdown in Berlin! We’ve written a bunch of killer riffs & lyrics and the band is sounding tighter & fatter than ever before. We’re really, really pumped.
Only thing is, we’ve been scratching our heads about how to fund it…
You guys probably know we’re independent & manage ourselves. We sold all our stuff in 2010, bought a one-way ticket out of Australia & we’ve been living on the road ever since. You’ve given us couches to crash on all over the world & that (combined with a canned soup diet & lots of busking) let us pull off 5 years of full time touring on our own! We’re really proud of that, but it’s time for us to take The Sunpilots to the next level.
We’ve decided to record in Berlin because it’s cheap, inspiring and has a great street music scene. We’re making just enough from busking & gigs to cover our living expenses. So we need to figure out how to fund recording/mixing/mastering/promoting the new album, making new music vids & the official World Tour.
It’s a huge project for an indie band. But the result is going to be epic. The last year has been amazing for us & it feels like we’re on the edge of something huge right now. Like the years of blood & sweat have been distilled into something so potent that we can smell it around the next corner. Yeah, we’re excited.
So how do we do this? We want to stay independent so we’re considering doing our first crowdfunding campaign. We love the idea of getting you guys involved & sharing the adventure with you. But it’s something we’ve never done before so we want to get your feedback first. What do you guys think?
