Bio

Following on from their critically acclaimed album ‘Crown and Treaty’, which was awarded a coveted five stars by Mojo, and its Mercury Music Prize-nominated predecessor ‘Twice Born Men’, Sweet Billy Pilgrim are back with their brand new album ‘Motorcade Amnesiacs’. The band recently signed to Kscope, home of artists including Steven Wilson, Anathema, Nordic Giants and Engineers and released the album on May 25th, 2015.

Not ones to respect musical boundaries, Sweet Billy Pilgrim have thrown every ounce of their belief and passion into the creative process resulting in the genre spanning excellence of ‘Motorcade Amnesiacs’. Frontman Tim Elsenburg’s unique musical worldview has resulted in yet another masterpiece; an album of adventurously inspired melodies, intertwining riffs and eclectic rhythms, heavenly harmonies and thought-provoking lyrics.

As he describes it: “I’ve rediscovered my love of the electric guitar, and of riffs. I’m jokingly referring to it as our Queens of the Sprout Age album, just because I like to imagine it as a point in time and space where Mr Homme and Mr McAloon might meet, fall in love and produce a ginger, epically-bearded, SBP-shaped baby.”

The album is a remarkable body of work. Ten years into Sweet Billy Pilgrim’s singular career, their development from electronic / acoustic experimentalism into widescreen accessibility is fully realised on this, their fourth album.

As a life-affirming work of both righteous joy and anger, ‘Motorcade Amnesiacs’ cements Sweet Billy Pilgrim as one of Britain’s greatest cult bands; critically adored yet still music’s best-kept secret. The time is now right for them to reap the rewards of a decade of perseverance. There’s no chance of forgetting them now…
