Show Preview: Autopilot

Saskatoon band Autopilot’s new single called, Weightless, will be showcased at The Capitol Music Club this weekend (with special guests Crooked Spies & Young James).

 

“Like Broken Social Scene, Wolf Parade and Modest Mouse…Autopilot is a name that should be ubiquitous among the underground/indie scene.”

– Jamie Funk, Divide and Conquer

Over the last few years, Canadian alternative rock band Autopilot has become a staple in the Saskatoon indie music scene. Known for their thoughtful lyrics, powerful hooks, dynamic stage show, and obsessive hard work, they somehow seem to effortlessly walk the line between passionate art and massive appeal.

Over the course of one EP and three full-length records, they’ve become road warriors touring relentlessly across Canada and the U.S. They’ve been praised for their tireless work ethic by publications like Canadian Musician Magazine, who called them, “quite possibly one of the hardest working bands in the country.”

The future is truly wide open for Autopilot as the 2018 release of their newest record Afterglow is their most accessible, and widely anticipated, album to date. They are going all in by pushing themselves further into touring and creating an ambitious video for their newest single ‘Weightless’ filmed in the heart of the American South during their U.S. tour.

Never content to sit still or play it safe, they’ve crafted and honed a remarkable live show and plan on spending as much time over the next year as possible getting their new songs in front of as many new fans as they possibly can.

After crossing the U.S. on their latest tour, Autopilot returns to Saskatoon to promote their newest single, ‘Weightless, and share their dedicated, inspiring live show to an eager Saskatoon audience.
