Blind Pilot’s Israel Nebeker turns loss into inspiration on its new album ‘And Then Like Lions’ (ATO Records) out 12th August. Written and composed by Nebeker over the course of three years, the record is a transcendent, cathartic response to the loss of his father and end of a 13-year relationship. ‘Lions’ is Blind Pilot’s most exhilarating album to date, a lush 10-song collection that is resilient, uplifting and often majestic in the face of tragedy. Blind Pilot teamed up with producer Tucker Martine (The Decemberists, Neko Case, My Morning Jacket) and the album was mixed by Peter Katis (The National, Interpol, Kurt Vile). They completed the record at Nebeker’s studio on Oregon’s north coast, in the town of Astoria.
