'Change the rules of the game, take the face from the name, trade the soul for the fame...I'm an Atari Pilot.' 🚀
After a long hiatus which took in a serious illness, Atari Pilot finally returned in 2018 with an acoustic set at the swindon shuffle. 2019 sees the full band return, with live shows planned and a new set of “Songs for the Struggle” to be recorded and released, to follow up the debut album “Navigation Of The World By Sound”.
"After coming through a battle with cancer I've never been more excited and grateful to be able to play and create music. it really feels like my best days are ahead. I had such amazing support during my illness from so many people it was really humbling. I feel like I'm on a mission To spread a positive energy and message to as many people as I can.”
'Atari Pilot is the sound of someone searching for something or someone, trying to the put the pieces together in order to escape or overcome whatever they struggle against’.
‘The songs are a like series of film scenes , where we're in that particular moment at that particular time, trying to come out on top against the odds and wondering what it's going to cost us.'
'We hope the songs will connect with people and inspire them to keep up the fight, to believe in themselves and the people around them, that's the message we’re trying to send, we’re on your side and in your corner." 👊
