Biography

Satan’s Pilgrims formed in 1992 during a series of house parties hosted by the members of the band, and were playing shows in their hometown of Portland, Oregon by 1993. Twisting their name from the 60’s AIP film “Satan’s Sadists” and donning their now familiar matching outfits complete with vampire capes, they became a real band.
The Pilgrims are one of the most influential surf and instrumental bands of the 90’s. While much of their sound has a definite Southern California influence, what sets them apart is the legacy of their Pacific Northwest rock ‘n’ roll ancestors: The Ventures, The Wailers, The Sonics and The Kingsmen.

This, along with three distinct guitarists and a relentless rhythm section, gives their live set a dazzling variety of dance party sounds to choose from, while maintaining their patented haunted sound. After years of touring, taking the band all over the U.S. and Europe (including a now legendary show in Slovenia), Satan’s Pilgrims continued to develop the surf instrumental genre.
November 2000 marked the beginning of a hiatus, as drummer Ted Pilgrim moved from Portland to Memphis, TN to sweat, get autographs from all of his Soul and early Rock n’ Roll heroes, and eat Bar-B-Q. Meanwhile, 6 Pilgrim offspring were birthed to various members.
After a few years of changing diapers, Musick Records announced that they wanted to release a retrospective culled from the Pilgrims’ original five albums. With renewed interest in the band sweeping the world, the Pilgrims decided that the occasion of a retrospective set deserved some new material to keep their faithful fans from the 1990s as satisfied as possible.
