Blind Pilot Announce Co-Headline Tour With Gregory Alan Isakov

Portland sextet Blind Pilot are excited to announce new co-headlining August tour dates with songwriter Gregory Alan Isakov. This run of shows will traverse the Pacific Northwest and include Midwest performances in Chicago, Des Moines and more. Called “a nice dose of folk rock” by BrooklynVegan, Blind Pilot released their third LP And Then Like Lions via ATO Records in 2016.

The album’s upbeat song “Packed Powder” reached #6 on the AAA radio charts, a career charting high for Blind Pilot. A song filled with elevated textures of guitar hooks and trumpet, it comes from an idea Nebeker had as a teenager when he and his friends found they could re-pack fireworks to different outcomes.

“We’re all made of the same stuff, but who knows how we’re packed and what we’ll show as we burn across the black sky of our own time?” thought Nebeker. “The song speaks lightheartedly of ironic outcomes when trying to better a life through different career paths, and then sings a chorus that surrenders and desires life to reveal what we are made of.”

All upcoming dates are listed below; in addition to the dates with Isakov, Blind Pilot will be performing at multiple music festivals and headlining select dates including shows at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles and the Pearl Street Nightclub in Northampton, Massachusetts.
