Banner Pilot are having a lot of van issues right now.
Update: the van will not be fixed today. Secured a one-day van rental here in Nurnberg. While we picked it up, the other guys started bringing all our stuff down from the apartment we were staying at to the street. Idea being, we'll pull up and take off right away for Weisbaden. We show up, and find out that somehow the door closed behind them while taking a load downstairs. The guy's only key is locked inside. So now we are driving to his grandparents' house to get the spare key. 40 minutes round trip.
Once we get the key, and get back to his apartment, and get the rest of the stuff, and get on the road, and get to Wiesbaden, and...

Corey Ayd has left Banner Pilot.
We have some crummy news to share – Corey has decided to leave Banner Pilot, and played his final show with us last weekend. It's been awesome to have him as part of the band for the last few years, and we're bummed to see him go. Luckily, it's just because he has other cool stuff going on in his life right now, and not for a bad reason like him being adamant about moving the band in a ska direction. Luckily for all of you, you can still check him out in his other band, The Manix, and we recommend you do so. So, what does this mean for the other three sad sacks in Banner Pilot? Well, it means we need a new guitar player! If you're interested, shoot an...

Banner Pilot is streaming a new song called "Effigy" over at AltPress. Souvenir is released through Fat Wreck tomorrow and we just interviewed the band last week in case you missed it.

We recently interviewed Banner Pilot bassist Nate Gangelhoff about the band's fourth full-length record Souvenir, which officially drops on Tuesday through Fat Wreck Chords.
That’s the idea to have some hooks and catchiness, maybe it didn’t end up being quite as poppy and slick as Heart Beats Pacific was, but the idea was still to have some hooks in the choruses and stuff.

Banner Pilot will start working on the follow-up to Heart Beats Pacific next month.
In early October, we will be heading into the studio to record our 4th full length record. We couldn’t be more excited to work with Jacques Wait, at The Terrarium in Minneapolis, just as we did on Collapser and Heart Beats Pacific. (OK, technically, yes, we could be “more excited”—- if the studio had a trampoline or something, we would probably be slightly more excited, but suffice to say we are VERY excited as-is).
We have 12 new songs and I think/hope we’ve struck the right balance between the extremes of “Do exactly what you did on your other albums” and “Completely re-invent yourselves”. I...
