Fun fact: Todd played and recorded this track on the first try and in one go.

A nice article and interview

on extramusic:

On August 31st , we will be releasing our first compilation on all digital services.

"SONGBOOK" will mainly focus on pop and rock-oriented songs.



Dear LEGACY PILOTS friends, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.

We plan to release the next Pilots album in 2024. There is no exact date yet, but just this much - what we have recorded so far is really promising, and we will certainly share some excerpts in the soon

In order to let the waiting become not too long until the release, here are two more excerpts from the upcoming album.
I'm absolutely aware of the incredible luck to have two of the world's best drummers in the band. Todd Sucherman and Marco Minnemann are just insane.

A great weekend everyone!




Today we have released our first single from the upcoming album HELIX on all common streaming services. 

The single version of TRUE SPIRIT is pretty different from the album version.

So even if you have heard this song by the time of the album release, there is something new to discover in the album version.

Here comes the latest update:
The last days were once again marked by a lot of detail work. What will soon be delivered to the pressing plant, has then existed forever. What is on a CD remains and of course you do not want to have not the slightest technical error on it.

Today we like to share the back of the cover of our new album and thus also the track list.

February 19th


One step closer:
Yesterday we had a very intense nine-hour session in the mastering studio.

A lot of detail work but we think it was worth it.

We will listen carefully to the results over the next few days and then go into finalization.






February 10th


We’re excited to share with you the artwork and the title of our new album, coming end of March:

December 31st


To all our friends and fans:
The pilots wish you a wonderful new year!
Peace and Love.

Hey folks,

October 9th

As so often in life, plans are the idea of how things should go. But then things turn out differently.
And with our new album it is no different. Actually, we wanted to be much further, but it is difficult when commitments can not be kept or illnesses come in between.
Nevertheless, there was progress and we had promised to post something from time to time.
This is a small excerpt of our 17 minute suite, and based on the pictures we can confirm, that Todd played through the whole piece in one go. And of course as a first take. Hats off to one of the bests in his guild.


Here is the link to the video:


April 22nd


We plan to share every month a little video from the recordings sessions until the new album is ready for release.
What you will hear is far from being ready. Some instruments might be missing or will be replaced, of course it is not finally mixed nor mastered but it could give you a certain impression what is it all about.
Today we start with a drum recording session of Marco Minnemann.


April 2nd


Hello everyone,

One or the other question has already come up and we don't want to make a big secret out of it,

but yes, there will be at least one new Legacy Pilots album.

With us will be definitely Todd Sucherman, Marco Minnemann, Pete Trewavas, Steven Rothery,

John Mitchell, Lars, Finally George and many other "usual suspects".

The writing of new music has begun and some recording has already taken place.

However, there is still a long way to go and if asked for a release date we would roughly say end of this year, beginning of next year.

We really looking forward to our next production.

December 24th


With today's video, the last official one from our "Penrose-Album", it's not about Dickens' Christmas ghosts, but about the ghosts of the sea.

John's wonderful voice, Marco's powerful drumming, Lars' congenial bass playing and the brilliant guitar solo by Steven Rothery give the song its special touch.
Have fun watching.

December 21st

Dear folks,
Another strange year is coming to an end, another year with hopes of finally getting rid of the pandemic, a year in which we had to learn that not all hopes come true.
For the pilots, someting in 2021 will nevertheless be remembered in a positive way .

The reactions to our latest album are so positive that we just want to say thank you. Especially thanks to all who bought our album as a CD or digitally, because that allows us to keep the project cost-covering alive in the future.
Merry Christmas and a happy new year from Legacy Pilots!

December 17th


IIt is time, to discover the beautiful face behind the wonderful voice: With our “Coast Cards”video lead singer LIZA becomes

appear together on the cover of a music magazine. ?
Thanks to EMPIRE Music for a nice interview and a great review of The Penrose Triangle."

December 2nd

Though wie have filmed nearly every recording session for “Penrose", it is most unlikely that we will see a complete video of “As Dominos Fall”.

Therefore we share just this excerpt which hopefully gives you two minutes of fun.

The track features Marco Minnemann, Pete Trewavas, Ricky Garcia & Frank Us.


November 13th

First class drumming by Todd Sucherman, an awesome solo from Steven Rothery, a splendid bass playing from Lars and marvellous backing vocals by Finally George.

How time flies...

Three weeks ago today we released THE Penrose Triangle.

And it's time to say thank you to everyone who has supportet us. 

Here is the link to our latest video, featuring the amazing Marco Minnemann:

Pre-order has started on Bandcamp

September 24th



It feels a little odd, but the matter of fact is, that the last track from the new album has been returned from the mastering studio. Composition, recording, arranging, mixing and mastering... A year and a half of work is finished. At least as far as the music is concerned. Now the “real” fun stuff begins... all the paperwork, registering tracks, preparing DDP for the pressing plant, finalising print documents... the list goes on.
If nothing goes wrong in the CD production later on, the release date at the end of October is safe.
We have made a lot of film material while we worked on the  album (as visible in the collage) which will end up in several music videos.
All pilots looking forward to this release and can’t wait for your reaction.

August 29th



8 out of 9
E x c i t e m e n t !

This week the majority of songs from the new album has been mastered.
Friedeman has done a terrific job.
Chances are good, that we can stick with the planned release date end of October.
We're Looking forward to that ;-)

Video excerpt

January 30th 2021


We are very happy to announce the first 50 seconds of audio, recorded for the third album.
Of course the album is far from being finished, but we think this little excerpt sounds already promising.
Drum recording session

Following our graphic announcement that we can expect something new from the Pilots in summer 2021, we would like to give you a bit more info.

Not only the process of writing new material has taken place, we have had already several recording sessions. The results so far are more than promising. Summer sounds a bit vague for a release date, but with several months in front of us with many more recordings, mixing and mastering a more definite schedule is impossible.

Nevertheless, we're going full steam ahead and we thought we share the good news. Attached here is a little screen shot from an actual session and if you spot the tracks on the left, you can already discover who again is on board

December 23rd


Dear Pilots friends,
We wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year.
Please take care of yourselves and stay healthy in the new year.
You will hear from us again in January and we think we will have good news. 
Until then,
Legacy Pilots

October 8th

Dear friends,

Today we release our latest and at the same time the last video from our AVIATION album.

"Innocent" is a mid-tempo piece with many calm sections. It's nevertheless worth watching, especially if you look how elegant Todd's play in this is. The fills he's playing are just brilliant. Which is also true for Lars' bass performance. Simply wonderful - even though he is not in the picture.

Thanks for all the support we've got!


INNOCENT - The video

September 19th


Hey folks,

Many thanks to everyone who has supported us over the last couple of weeks?

We’re grateful for all the very good reviews AVAITION has got and of course we are especially grateful to the people who bought our album. 

In this regard -  finally all problems are solved with the online shop in the US: delivery and shipping now works as expected.
