Minneapolis punks Banner Pilot have two big announcements today! Firstly, they are currently working on a new full-length album, which will be their first with new guitarist Jeff Matika. And secondly, they will be touring Europe later this spring – another first with Matika on 6-string.
You can read what bassist Nate Gangelhoff had to say about the new record/European tour, and check out the dates and locations below.
Banner Pilot released their latest full-length album Souvenir in April of 2014 through Fat Wreck Chords. We’ll be sure to keep you all in the loop as more details on its follow-up come to light.
We are super excited to get back to Europe, both to play some of our favorite cities and festivals in the whole world, and to be able to play in new countries we’ve never been to before. Can’t wait. Also really looking forward to playing our first shows with Jeff Matika on guitar. We have some Midwest shows coming up shortly after that and will be figuring out the rest of our US tour plans for 2015 soon. In the meantime we’re having fun plugging away at our next record.
