The Winnipeg band Take Me to the Pilot, self-described as “a rock band that plays pop music”, will be playing in Kingston at The Mansion on Wednesday, July 4th to introduce fans to their sophomore EP “What Makes You“.
This event follows the group’s performance to a sold-out hometown crowd that coincided with the EP’s release date debut at #3 on the iTunes Canada Pop Album chart and #21 overall.
The band’s new single “What About The Time” has also began playing on radios across Canada with its video (embedded below) being distributed to major National television stations.
Take Me To The Pilot formed in 2009 and includes guitarist/vocalist Mike Bilenki, guitarist Eric Grabowecky, bassist/vocalist Adam Brown and drummer Jon Stanners.
Though the band’s ultimate goal is to reach as wide an audience as they can, the boys are ensuring that their career happens on their terms. This is especially true when it comes to their blistering live show, the goal of which is to ‘Hit it as hard as we possibly can.’
The songs may be pop, but to Take Me To The Pilot, theirs is still a rock show, and they only consider it a success when the crowd leaves covered in sweat wearing huge smiles.
The band appears at the Mansion (506 Princess Street), along with Fairview and Man Club, from 7pm to 10pm on Wednesday July 4th.
