People in Planes Live Dates

On 2nd March 2009 People in Planes released their new EP ‘Last Man Standing’ in advance of their second album ‘Beyond the Horizon’, on Wind-up Records.

Garnering comparisons to Radiohead, Pearl Jam, Muse and Supergrass (the band poached ‘I Should Coco’s producer Sam Williams), their new album is a progressive, ambitious adventure from a few boys from Cardiff. They are fresh from supporting The Stereophonics in the States and supporting Biffy Clyro in the UK.

Yet first, let the boys treat you to a sampling from their new EP. The chunky powermarch of ‘Last Man Standing’ set to its monastic organ blasts gives you a taste of the challenging, anthemic tunes that People in Planes are capable of. The moody petulance of ‘Barracuda’ kidnaps many a rockers ear’s, while the delicately crafted ‘Baked’ is an emotional multi-leveled track that transpires from peace into fast paced finale. The new tracks were not only produced by Matt Squire (Panic at the Disco) and Dan Austin (Doves, Massive Attack), but also in conjunction with outfit Eleven, longtime collaborators with Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Queens of the Stone Age, and producers of acts such as No Doubt and Josh Homme. Member Natasha Shneider sadly finally succumbed to cancer this year, and it is to her the new album is dedicated.

“…it recalls Pearl Jam’s more introspective moments before exploding into the prickly neck moments that Muse can cause.. intelligent addictive rock.” KERRANG!
