Three Mile Pilot has been out of the game for quite a while. Originally taking a break so their members could focus on side projects like The Black Heart Procession and Pinback, both of which quickly developed lives of their own and gained fanbases beyond expectation, the band was kept on the backburner until early 2009. After headlining a series of wildly successful reunion shows in their hometown of San Diego, the band's core trio spent months in their home studio writing and recording The Inevitable Past Is The Future Forgotten, their new album that offers a new perspective on the band's influential sound.
"Still Alive", the second track on the album features their trademark locked-in rhythm section supplemented by electronic flourishes co-mingling with moody, atmospheric guitars. The soaring chorus and layered vocals conjure an eerily romantic desperation that is both reminiscent of classic 3MP records and emblematic of the influence of the band's other projects.

The Inevitable Past Is The Future Forgotten is out 9/28 on Temporary Residence Ltd. The band is celebrating the release of the album on Sept. 28 at the legendary San Diego club, Starlite, by throwing a listening party for friends and fans of the band. Until their upcoming US tour in early 2011, two thirds of Three Mile Pilot are going to be spending time on the road with The Black Heart Procession. They are touring this fall with The Books, to promote their upcoming EP featuring remixes by Lee "Scratch" Perry and Eluvium, as well as three unreleased tracks.
