The past: Formed in 2003, gogoPilot has released three cd's... 2005's Armageddon Lullabies, 2007's Manana Mon Frere and 2009's the further it goes, the farther it is.
The now: 2022 finds the band on the cusp of releasing a new full length entitled descend to great. The record features strong performances and songs about love, divorce, the state of the world, the pandemic, and the pursuit of happiness through change and introspection, all the while carrying a motherload of guitar snarl and rock and roll energy. The addition of bass player Ken Ogden in 2020 has breathed a new life into the band and has helped transform the band into a more cohesive unit both live and on record.
