Privatclub July 24 - Our one, very special 2014 Berlin show

It's been an intense few months since we landed in Berlin this year. We've built a studio in the old east side of the city, driven across Europe, played some festivals & done an insane amount of busking to pay the rent. In between that we've also been working on a new record. We weren't planning on doing a Berlin show till we returned from the US, but you guys have changed our mind. The support we've received in this place has been amazing and humbling. And, even though playing semi-acoustic on the street has been fun, it's been pretty frustrating. We need amps... on a stage... with a pumping, sweaty crowd. So here it is. Our one, very special 2014 Berlin show. It's a celebration of our journey so far and of where it's led us. And a farewell to our fans and friends in Berlin before we leave for the States. We hope you can join us! Share this and invite your friends to spread the word- we'd love to pack the place out: facebook.com/events/1466311183612425/ 2014-07-24 Privatclub - The Sunpilots (AUS) + Bunny Suit (DE) + Mynolia (CAN)

Metric System

One of our favourite tracks from Living Receiver (2009), which we re-released independently last month. Thank you to everyone who has bought a copy- we really appreciate the support! If you haven't got yours yet, the buy links are under the lyrics. x ps. remastered HD music video coming soon- subscribe to us on youtube.com/thesunpilots for updates 'Rigamortis on the clothesline. Mockingbirds are sounding the alarm. It’s over me, it's over you. Bound together stuck like glue. I beg your pardon, what's your name? I thank you all the same. Go baby go. It's a strange belief in metric systems. Go baby go. It's the aftertaste when no-one listens. What baby's got the baby knows. The baby's lost, the baby's found and maybe shows. Go, go, go, go... A piece of string, remove a bad tooth. Though it might be bleeding I'll be fine. Percussive strum upon a menu, and handlebar brakes work fine. I's over me, it's over you. Bound together stuck like glue. I beg your pardon, what's your name? I thank you all the same. 'Cause things ought to be easier you see. Another second place trophy in place of first place...'

Animals in my Mind

A song inspired by a bizarre dream... 'I wash my new suits in the rain and my old suits in the drain And my double-breasted pillowcases all just seem the same. I think I better hide. I think I better hide. I've got a pet that's shedding hair on a chair that isn't fair On a cushion that I made for me when I just didn't care And they call to me- I think I better hide. I think I better hide. Animals in my mind. You are me They're taking my, taking my time. You are me 'Cause animals in my mind. You are me They're taking my, taking my time. More than just a name, so much more than just a game And the cards that nature's dealt to me are more than what I claim And they call to me- I think I better hide. I think I better hide. Long to see me for a breath of air. I think I'm scared of animals in my mind. You are me. Taking my, taking my time. You are me... Think it's more than a sound, creatures moving around. Feel the animals take you higher. Downloading complete- they're reprogramming me. Self-triggering sanity excision. Creeping into surround, put your ear to the ground. Are they real, are they synthesizing my mind? From our debut album 'Living Receiver' (2009), available now on: The Sunpilots store: goo.gl/2P0Mla iTunes: goo.gl/bAIGc5 Amazon MP3: goo.gl/7grJav

Medicated Shell (album version) - Feat. sitar, tabla & Raj's mother

Our singer Raj was born in Australia, but what you might not know is that his mother is a classically trained Sri Lankan singer. He grew up jamming in alternative rock bands in high school while also learning the 72 scales of Carnatic music. The intro of Medicated Shell was sung by Raj's mother. The track also features some pretty cool sitar and tabla. Medicated Shell is about an addict who loses touch with reality. 'Sitting cracked up on this wall, I'm moving with the ebb and flow. It's pulsing through my veins, it slowly pushes up again. This clock has stopped. Time passed slowly. I'm punching out again... I'm fading. I'm fading. I'm gone. Can you see through me now 'cause I'm fading, I'm fading, I'm gone in this medicated shell. Meditating, drifting slowly in and out of conscious headspace. Breathe it in and breath it slowly; tendrils fade away. Said it's a universal state of being; always seen but never seeing. Whispered thoughts that have no meaning, oh they'll rue that day. This pin has dropped, it's sinking slowly. Digging in my brain…'   From the album 'Living Receiver' (2009).
