Official Biography (Facebook)…

Born in 2002, Skypilot have been following their own distinct path through the past 15 yrs. Drawing their influences from a wide and varied collection of bands and genres SKYPILOT simply play what feels right, making them notoriously hard to pigeon hole into any one area of the rock music spectrum.

This approach has served them well so far. Numerous Irish tours have come and gone with bands such as END OF LEVEL BOSS, FIREBIRD, GENTLEMANS PISTOLS and SUNS OF THUNDER. Full UK tours with fellow NI band STAND-UP GUY saw SKYPILOT cement their reputation on the mainland and win new fans wherever they played. More high profile gigs followed with the like of BRANT BJORK AND THE BROS, PLANET OF ZEUS and the mighty CORROSION OF CONFORMITY, shows that boosted the bands profile and proved SKYPILOT are comfortable in the big venues as well as the regular club stages.

With 4 EP’s and a full length debut album under their belt, Skypilot show no signs of slowing down.
