Playing our last 2 European shows for 2015 this weekend! Just finished rehearsals- this is what happens when there's too much beer in the studio. Yeah, packing the van is gonna take longer than usual tonight...
On Friday we hit Berlin, Germany. Then it's on to Poland on Saturday for a show in Poznan. Check out thesunpilots.com/tourdates for details. Can't wait to hit the road again. Writing sessions have been going awesomely, but the stage has been calling.
Mood lighting 1.0. Our studio is in an old Berlin office building. The fluorescent lights were killing the creative vibe so we fired up our merch lights. Sexy! Makes such a huge difference for writing. Need some lava lamps next.
Had the first rehearsal with our new bass dude last night. Excited about the chemistry in this new lineup & where our sound is headed for the new album!
But right now we're getting Stefan up to speed on the songs from KOTST & Living Receiver. It takes time to re-learn the band's body language with a new member. Once that's second nature a band goes from just being "tight" to becoming a single creature that moves, breathes & feels together. That's when the real magic happens.
Doing a festival in Germany next week & we've gotta start busking ASAP to cover this month's rent. Feels a bit like cramming for exams atm!

This is what happens when you let bands crash in your rehearsal studio... Our mates from Leverkusen had a gig in Berlin & needed somewhere to stay. Wicked few days of jams, chills & beer.
There were 5 people sleeping in one room & there's no shower in the building. So things did get pretty funky in there. But hey, a jam ain't a jam without a some sweat in the air.
