BLIND PILOT LAUNCHES FALL TOUR IN OCTOBER; TOURING WITH SPECIAL GUESTS THE LOW ANTHEM

Rising Portland, OR-based band, Blind Pilot, kicks off a nationwide tour this October. The tour arrives on the heels of their full-length debut 3 Rounds and a Sound, which earned the band performances on national radio (NPR¹s ³Morning Edition² and ³All Songs Considered²), national television (³Last Call with Carson Daly²) and a spot on this year¹s bill for the esteemed NPR Music Showcase at SXSW in Austin, TX. The album, available now on Expunged Records, received praise from USA Today, the Boston Globe, the New York Post and the Philadelphia Inquirer, which calls the music ³Ša rustic reverie.² Additionally, the track ³Go On, Say It² was recently selected as the Single of the Week on iTunes.

Blind Pilot is currently wrapping up a summer tour, which included opening slots for The Decemberists, Andrew Bird and the acclaimed British rock band Gomez. Blind Pilot recently played sets at this year¹s Lollapalooza and Sasquatch! music festivals and will perform at this year¹s Rocky Mountain Folks Festival, Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival and the Sisters Folk Festival. Please see reverse for a full list of dates.

In 2007, Blind Pilot¹s founding members Israel Nebeker (vocals, guitar) and Ryan Dobrowski (drums) embarked on a West Coast bicycle tour playing mostly to unfamiliar listeners at small-town venues. The venturesome duo has since come a long way from their grassroots inception. This summer, Nebeker and Dobrowski rounded out Blind Pilot¹s lineup as a six-piece with fellow Oregonians Luke Ydstie (upright bass, backing vocals), Kati Claborn (banjo, dulcimer, backing vocals), Ian Krist (vibraphones) and Dave Jorgensen (keyboards, trumpet).
