Bio

Life Pilot are 5 friends from Adelaide, South Australia who play music together. Whilst they may not be operating aircrafts, one thing that is for certain is that they are making the most out of living and doing what set out to do, which is – write heavy angry fast songs and not conform to any trends or bullshit.

It’s this sincere honesty and ruthless disregard for convention that has forged Life Pilot's reputation as a unique and awe-inspiring act. Their music is carefully crafted and executed with masterful musicianship, but still maintaining a raw, unrelenting energy and all the brutality expected from their genre. Their live show is unparalleled. Known for their intense physical display, Life Pilot literally bleeds for their fans, leaving many broken stages, instruments and band members in their wake.

To date the band has self released their 2012 Demo EP, the 2013 Compass Split record with Statues (WA) and their Debut EP, High Noon in 2014. These releases garnered much attention around the country from Triple J, Local Radio, Blunt Magazine, Channel V, numerous blogs and street press outlets, as well as artist features in Australian Guitar and DrumScene magazines.

Life Pilot has toured Australia multiple times in support of their numerous releases, sharing the stage with many legendary artists along the way. Every Time I Die, HELL YEAH, Norma Jean, Senses Fail, Kverletak & More, as well as performing at SoundWave Festival and showcasing at BIGSOUND.

2017 marks the return of Life Pilot's dominating sound with their Sophomore EP, "Too Hot For Killing". This 6 track release is a darker, heavier and more technical side of Life Pilot. Combining the moody hooks and melody of artists akin to Deftones and Every Time I Die, with the raw and frenzied chaos of the likes of The Chariot and The Dillinger Escape Plan, 'Too Hot For Killing' promises to reshape the landscape of Australian Hardcore with it's uncompromising nature.

Huge! I'm thoroughly pulverized after listening to this one but have momentarily reformed the fractured parts of my soul to shout out those beaut backing vocals - just adds a whole new dimension to this.

One incredibly punchy minute of raw mathcore. Reminds me of Miss Machine era Dillinger.
