Today, just some days before the fall season, we offer you our third video clip “Hibernate”. Last year, just some days before the end of the recording sessions of our album Sunny Forecast, we totally transformed the initial song to a more psychedelic version. We chose this song because we think it illustrates the range of songs on our debut album. The meaning of this song coincides with the departure of our drummer Valerie. Many thanks to Yves Peeters from Tricoteuse.be for using his artwork skills making the video. Also thanks to Claire De Koninck, who Yves worked with.
As you know, Valerie is leaving Pilod by the end of the year. But before really going separate ways, we proceed with the planned mini-tour to Catalonia. So, Pilod is playing live in Spain at the end of October in Barcelona and November 1st in Solsona, on the foothills of the Pyrenees.
These are the venues: 30/10 Slow/Barcelone with 9M Lied 31/10 Ultra-local Records/Barcelona 31/10/2014 Secret show/Barcelona 01/11 Festival/Solsona with Black Islands
Today we announce the very sad news that Valerie is leaving Pilod by the end of the year.
Although musically everything went smoothly and the collaboration went successfully, the different levels of ambition in the band became difficult to synchronize. We decided the best solution was to start looking for a new drummer. Valerie leaves the band in friendship and with full understanding.
All fixed concerts will be played with Valerie until the end of 2014.
Frederic and Christophe are starting with auditions with candidate drummers, not trying to compare too much with Valerie.
