"We Are The Tide," the sophomore album from Portland-based band Blind Pilot, will be released September 13, 2011. The album follows the band’s grassroots debut, "3 Rounds and a Sound," which has garnered them critical attention on NPR, which included them in their “Best Music of 2008” roundup, stating, “a roots-pop duo which bathes its terrific songs in ingratiating harmonies and understated instrumentation."
The band now exists as a 6-piece ensemble featuring fellow Oregonians Luke Ydstie (upright bass, backing vocals), Kati Claborn (banjo, dulcimer, backing vocals), Ian Krist (vibraphones) and Dave Jorgensen (keyboards, trumpet). In the years since it’s inception, the band has toured with various world-renowned musicians and have appeared at the Sasquatch! Music Festival, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits and the Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival.
The band will be playing at the Belly Up Tavern on October 2, 2011 from 9:00 PM - 1:00 AM.
