Hey pILLOWpeeps!

We know, it’s been awhile since we’ve said hello on this thing. So hey to you all! Our year started out with a kick off show at Mercury Lounge in NYC. Basically, we’re doing at least a new song every show to test new material (and get these sonics off our chests to the people) for the upcoming new reelase. Don’t want to disclose a date or time when this will be released yet. Just writing and playing it as it lays but you’ll receive more details as this takes more shape along the journey. Thanks to all who represented at Mercury that cold Winter night. You’re the best and we had a blast thanks to you!

Next, Kelsey will be performing a few solo shows at SXSW in Austin next week. More details sooner than later. He’ll be back in NYC just in time for the next full band pILLOW show at PIANOS on the Lower East Side. This is an album release party for their friends Disparager! Get in thy building.

We’ll be hitting a city near you late Spring, early Summer for the Incognegro Tour 2014! If you want us in your area, holla at us or the coolest club of your choice. See ya soon and thank you always for your support!

pT 3/3/14

Hey pILLOWpeeps,
Miss you all much. Haven’t played a lot of shows here and not on the road but we’re so busy behind the scenes, it’s difficult to plan a lunch break these days! Lots of writing and going back and forth over new material in and out of the studio. Here’s what’s going down on the live front within a week.
Kelsey plays a special solo set for the CBGB Festival tonight Thursday October 10 at National Underground, 8pm. 159 East Houston Street, NYC. Expect stripped down pILLOW favorites and other gems pulled out of his hat :)
The full band return for an exclusive FREE Happy Hour CMJ showcase at Bowery Electric this WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 16 at 5pm. Yes it’s free and we hit stage at 5:15pm just in time for you to leave your job and take advantage of a much needed Happy Hour drink with us. More new songs to penetrate your ear, including the increasingly popular “Baby Making Heels” track (one new one passing the test). 327 Bowery at 2nd Street in money Making Manhattan. This is probably going to be our last NYC performance of the year so come now or hold your breath until 2014.
Thank you all for your support always.

Hey pILLOWpeeps,

We’re looking forward to seeing you tomorrow Tuesday May 28 at Mercury Lounge for our first show in quite sometime.

Hey pILLOWpeeps,
Been awhile, missing you all and the stage so much! Bless those who attended our last show in January at The Studio/Webster Hall in NYC with some awesome old friends on the bill (Alex Kelly of course) and new ones too (yeah Dynasty Electric, Jadex & peeps). Since then Kelsey and Danos have been in the lab working on new material, Joaquin has been traveling and Bill has been spreading his drum love all over NYC and Boston. We’re hibernating but still busy behind the scenes.
We’ll return to the venues in a few months with some new sonic goodies for you! Yes Brooklyn, we will be playing the NORTHSIDE FESTIVAL 2013 in June which we’re excited about. Expect some cool treats between now and then. Gearing up for a Summer fun tour as well. Check out our Twitter & Facebook pages for more updates and everything you need to know regarding pILLOW.
You all rule!

Hey pILLOWfreaks

Thank you so much for your support and good vibes this summer.  Haven’t been here for awhile so let’s play catch up.

If you attended the BAM, Gibson and multiple Mercury Lounge performances in NYC then we appreciate your presence!  If not, then we hope to see you at our CMJ showcase at Bowery Electric in October.   

At the last Mercury show 2 weeks ago we performed some new material so you know what that means…Yes, we’re gearing up for a new album to be released next year.  But before that, our critically acclaimed EP MELTDOWN will be re-released November 5th via Europe’s FILTER label with some extra spices on it.  We are so looking forward to this and hope that you are too.  FILTER recently released electro sensation LITTLE BIRDS’s new single and EP with remixes of “THE STRUGGLE OF DISTANCE” featuring pILLOW’s Kelsey on vocals.  You can find that on iTunes and pretty much any cool internet store of your liking.

Shortly after the release we will hit the NE for a short tour which we haven’t done in awhile.  Definitely looking forward to invading your city!  Until then, be on the lookout for sporadic solo Kelsey shows like the upcoming one in Harlem at SHRINE on Labor Day.  Kristi Martel is also on the bill.  Shes sounds lovely!!!

You’re up to date.  See you this Fall.  Looking forward to getting banned in your area and having some fun!!!  You gals & guys are the absolute best!
