Red Hammer Records rock band Dreampilots fly into rock radio airspace this week with their debut single “Comedown” from the album of the same name. With the music video already generating attention at top outlets like Gospel Music Channel and JCTV, the radio single debuted at #28 this week on both the Billboard Christian Rock Chart and the CRW Signature Rock Chart.

Glowing reviews are touting Comedown as one of the top releases of the year:

“Dreampilots simply have far more talent than most groups currently on the scene and their debut is, easily, one of the best rock albums released in the Christian market this year.” – Shawn McLaughlin, Christian Musician Magazine

“Rock ‘n’ roll snuck across U.S. borders with a Norwegian swagger….Future headline: ‘Dreampilots Make Rock ‘n’ Roll Fans Dream Again.'” – Rob Vischer, CBNmusic.com

“Beginning to end, the guys in Dreampilots have created a sound that not only defies the current Scandinavian scene but the Nashville one as well. And therein lies in the beauty of Comedown. This is one of the few purchases worth every penny this year.” – Matt Conner, Soul-Audio.com

“Rock and Roll!! These boys are about to show American bands how its done.” – Carl Johnson, Greater Than Magazine

About Dreampilots:
Dreampilots released their North American debut album Comedown (Red Hammer Records/E1 Entertainment Distribution) in September to rave reviews, immediately landing on the iTunes “New and Noteworthy” list of current rock genre releases. The Norway-based foursome, which has drawn comparisons as diverse as U2, Switchfoot and Foo Fighters, is made up of veteran musicians with an incredible track record. Frontman and former Word Records UK artist Oddi Nessa is joined by bass player Gulleiv Wee, a founding member of the platinum selling pop band The September When, sought after keyboard player Inge Engelsvold and drummer Karl Oluf Wennerberg, who is also the current drummer for the multi-platinum group a-ha.

Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.
