Icarus The Owl - Pilot WavesOctober 16, 2015 – Indie pop-punk quartet released their new album Pilot Waves today! Sputnik Music hosted an exclusive pre-release stream yesterday, for listening here. Reflecting the growing sound of the group, the album is their fourth full-length release and first to be released since their signing with Blue Swan Records.

Describing the new album, lead singer Joey Rubenstein commented, “Pilot Waves exists as a balance of light and dark, and pulled our sound in opposite directions – we wrote the heaviest and lightest songs we’ve ever written. I was going through a tumultuous time while writing the album and I think the music and lyrics are a reflection of that. Some days I would have a very manic headspace and I’d write a really heavy song. Other days, I would feel serene and write something more uplifting.”

has released two music videos in support of the album’s singles, “I Am The DeLorean” which premiered on on Alternative Press and “Skysweeper” through Under The Gun Review. With strong response, the band noted a thanks to their fans stating, “It’s the most exciting time for us when releasing new songs after sitting on them for a while.  We may be selfish and only write what we want to write, but we still care what our fans think, and at the end of the day, they are the reason we can exist.”

Pilot Waves is now available through CD and vinyl bundles, or digital copies on the band’s Bandcamp. is playing select U.S. CD release shows and then headed overseas for a UK/Europe with Closure In Moscow. Tour dates are listed below.
