September 2012 Newsletter

In the last 12 months a lot has happened!

Firstly, The Lunar Pilots welcome Conor Bailey, an extremely talented, young and dynamic drummer to the line-up.

Around a year ago the band signed a management deal and record contract with an Independent label but after 6 months of false promises it became clear that the company failed to deliver in every department. Rather than risk working with them in recording the debut album they sacked the company and took the bold decision to self-fund the recording of their debut LP.

“The Lunar Pilots” are back with a vengeance – and more determined than EVER!

Steve Orchard / Rockfield Studios:

The band were delighted that when contacting Grammy award winner Steve Orchard, after listening to the demos he agreed to produce the debut album!
The band also managed to book up world famous recording studio “Rockfield Studios” (Monmouth, Wales) for the last two weeks of May 2012 to lay it down.

It proved to be a fantastic experience and working partnership. The band and Steve managed to record 14 tracks (4 more than expected)! Steve commented that he was very impressed with the musicianship and remarkable speed at which the drums and bass were laid down by Conor and Keith with literally only a couple of takes per track needed!

A truly magical experience for the Pilots, working with one of the best producers out there, Steve had literally been working with Sir Paul McCartney the day before he joined the band in Wales.
Steve had some inspirational ideas, techniques and his engineering skills were second to none. The band was filled with confidence and the results are evident.

The experience was helped with Nathaniel on board as the band’s chef, photographer, roadie and top friend! To top it off Wales had a heat-wave for two weeks!
Kingsley, the owner of Rockfield studios came to the coach house where the Pilots were staying next to the studio and told many fascinating tales about The Stone Roses, Oasis, Mott The Hoople, Kasabian to name but a few!

Next up was mixing the tracks and once again Steve’s experience, expertise and intuition came to the fore to recognise what enhancements were required to take the album to another level.
He patiently worked for with a few of the Pilot’s suggestions thrown in to mix and master to perfection!

So the mixed and mastered album is complete and ready to roll!!

POINT OF NO RETURN:

The band considered many different album title ideas and eventually decided to use the line “Point Of No Return” from the song Crash & Burn as the album title – a poignant choice in terms of describing the situation of the band and what they are trying to achieve.
The artwork has been designed and is looking stunning.

Negotiations are currently ongoing with established Management Companies and Labels to work with to promote, market and exclusively launch the album with the maximum impact it deserves!

So watch this space for even BIGGER announcements real soon!!!
