Santa Barbara quartet Tommy & The High Pilots will release their new full-length album Only Human on May 28th on Redbird Records. Helmed by a trio of producers - Matt Wallace (Maroon 5, Train); Jason McEntire (Son Volt, Ha Ha Tonka) and Marc McClusky (Weezer, Ludo) - the songs are eclectic but united by frontman Tommy Cantillon's bold vocal range and themes of perseverance, redemption and humanity.
The band also unveils the album art today as well as a lyric video for the album's title track. Both feature pieces from a collection called "Moodheads" by Santa Barbara artist David J. Diamant. Frontman Tommy Cantillon says the song "Only Human" is about "being in a tough spot and having a hard time seeing the upside. It's about how everyone makes mistakes and as long as we never stop fighting to be better, mistakes are -- for the most part -- forgivable and life goes on."
