Big Machine/John Varvatos Records Signs Friday Pilots Club

Friday Pilots Club has signed with Big Machine/John Varvatos Records. The band will release their first single under the BMLG imprint, “Glory,” next Friday (Feb. 8) on all digital platforms. Caleb Hiltunen (vocals) and Drew Polovick (guitar) front the Chicago-based band, which has already earned a loyal local following. They will release “Glory” to alternative radio on February 11.

“I’m always on the lookout for a rock band that cuts through the noise with songs, imagination, power and identity,” said BMLG President and CEO Scott Borchetta. “From the first time I met Caleb, Drew and the band, to their electric live show, I knew we found something special. Serving notice now, the Pilots are coming.”

“Friday Pilots Club have everything that a great rock band should possess – memorable songs, big hooks, and an exciting stage presence,” adds John Varvatos. “Caleb and Drew are the real deal!”

“Working with BMLG has been incredible in understanding how many parts there are to a successful (pun intended) machine,” said Hiltunen. “Over the past two months, Scott, John and the team have helped us prepare for what I’m hoping will be our first big step into the public eye (and ear). Without them and our personal team, Drew and I (and our boys) would be right where we started. It’s good to have a solid team, the state of rock should always be solid.”
