Biography

Originally formed as Pilate in 1999, the Toronto-based rock quartet changed their name to “Pilot Speed” in mid-2006, in order to avoid possible lawsuits as their music spread internationally from their native Canada. Pilate were born in 2000 after vocalist and New Zealand native Todd Clark left the music program at the University of Western Ontario where he’d been studying and placed an ad online for potential bandmates. Bassist Ruby Bumrah, a graduate of the Ontario College of Art and Design, answered the call, bringing with him fellow alums Chris Greenough (guitar) and Bill Keeley (drums). Citing influences like Crowded House, Radiohead, and U2 for Pilate’s especially sweeping brand of melodic rock — not so dissimilar to acts like Keane, Coldplay, and Snow Patrol — they released the six-song EP For All That’s Given, Wasted in the summer of 2001. It quickly sold out its initial pressing and established the guys as players in the Canadian music scene.

    And tonight I lack the strength to even move
    When you walked, now watch me die
    But I know this is harder for you
    For love has let you down and come on
    And no, you're not alone
