Damned Pilots today announces that new CD “Overgalaxy” is coming via a deal with Sliptrick Records due later this winter.
“Overgalaxy” is a steam punk concept album that drummer Don Nutz says “is built on the story of four cartoon characters, The Damned Pilots Don Nutz, Sgt Ote, Willer Hertz and Erik Space. They travel through space in the year 2500 A.C. on a 1970 ‘s hippy van customized to fight against their archenemy Gorguss and his evil empire.”
The lyrics, written by Sgt Ote, are about love and hate, war and peace, past and future, rebellions against failed systems, all with the sense of humor typical of a sci-fi b-movie.
The album was recorded at Track Terminal Studio in Trieste, Italy by Francesco Bardy, except “Just Another Day” and “People Don’ t Die” recorded at Voodoosound Studios in Ijmuiden, Holland by Paul van Rijswijk.
