Three Mile Pilot sign to Temporary Residence–New album in early 2010

May 1, 2009 - 1:39 am


As CityBeat previously reported, the demise of Chicago-based Touch and Go Records left bands local bands PinbackThree Mile Pilot and The Black Heart Procession without a label. Pinback was the first to find a new home on New York-based Temporary Residence Limited (whose roster includes names like Explosions in the Sky, Mono and Pinback member Rob Crow), and now Three Mile Pilot has signed to the label as well. TMP was working on a new album when Touch and Go folded, but according to the Temporary Residence press release, fans should expect the new album in early 2010. Are Blackheart Procession next?

From the Temporary Residence press release: Still reeling from making room at our table for the mighty Pinback, we are humbly stoked to announce the unbelievable return and addition of Three Mile Pilot to the TRL Family! Three Mile Pilot are truly one of our all-time favorite bands, and it is a supreme honor to be working with them. For those of you that might not be familiar, Three Mile Pilot recorded Another Desert, Another Sea (aka one of the best records ever) and then promptly went on a decade-long self-imposed hiatus, in the meantime splitting into two new bands (Pinback and The Black Heart Procession), both of which went on to achieve even greater acclaim, seemingly marking the official end of Three Mile Pilot…but alas! Like Mickey Rourke, the mighty Three Mile Pilot have triumphantly returned, playing a series of sold-out shows in their hometown of San Diego recently, and scheduling a short tour up the west coast this summer in preparation of their long-awaited new album, due for release in early 2010. Until then, go see them live if you get the chance, and get schooled a bit here: 3MP Rock The Casbah!
