News For April 2013…What the hell is going on?!!
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!

September 1…I Know What You Did Last Summer
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!
This was taken at last night’s Mercury Lounge show by Lana Winter! It was most definitely too much fun! Big thanks to Black Box Revelation! Next pILLOW live stop? Gibson Showroom, NYC June 1st!
EVERYONE should have the right to be married!!!!
Not too surprised but it’s more like a “lowest of low” or “last straw” situation. REGARDLESS of your opinion of him or his presidency, Obama finally put his support of gay marriage on blast! This is again a pretty historic moment and day, especially after the NC situation. However, probably the worst excuse for a ‘news’ station, FOX twists this with the stupid, BIASED, childish headline “Obama Flip Flops, Declares War On Marriage.” I don’t really expect anything of substance or close to fairness with this channel (neither do a large number of conservatives actually) and I understand it has a “reality tv” type of quality which can be humorous at times, but this is really a shame (almost as low as Hannity’s anti-Trayvon mission but I spoke about that previously). It really shouldn’t be a conservative vs. liberal issue in my opinion. This is about the rights of PEOPLE, point blank. If it’s not for you then don’t get married to a gay person but why would you want to censor the rights of other PEOPLE? Live your own life and stop trying to keep enforcing these 1864 laws against human beings. Hell the people that support the views of this channel probably wouldn’t have invited me over for dinner 30 years ago or want me to get married to ANYONE (you know where I’m going with this obviously)! I can’t see how anyone can reach for some kind of “decent reason” why FOX Nation is a credible source of unbiased, non racist, non sexist, non homophobic news. I wrote a shorter version of this on my personal page and hesitated putting this on the band page due to the political nature and/or the risk of alienating fans. Then I realized, we don’t want to have anything to do with racist, sexist or homophobic people anyway! So there you go! Sorry, yes I said it with my liberal and conservative point of view! Have a great hump day and celebrate intelligent freedom of expression!!!
"Blipsters & Buppies" VIDEO!!!!
It’s here! The official video for “Blipsters & Buppies”, our first single from our EP Meltdown (you should have that by now right? No? Go to iTunes or something and buy it damnit!!!). Mika Kenyah of Sugar & Spikes fame directed and Bandit23 edited the thing! We’re super proud of the result and you will be too.
Special thanks to our Kickstarter contributors who made this all possible, Stephanie Castillo for being an awesome star, Cake Shop for providing a venue for Kelsey to smash guitars and all the amazing people in the shoot.
