Three Mile Pilot — the San Diego-based band that was first founded in the 90s and spawned both Pinback and The Black Heart Procession — released their first album in 13 years back in 2010. It was good to see them back in action, and it’s even better to see that a mere two years later they’re already releasing more new music. A new EP called Maps is set for release on Temporary Residence on July 24, 2012.

Check out the first single from the Maps EP, “Long Way Up”:

Three Mile Pilot – “Long Way Up”

As exciting it is to see that mp3, there is more 3MP excitingness to share: The band is touring behind the Maps EP and rolling through Bottom of the Hill on August 18. You don’t want to miss this, because who the hell knows when they’ll play together again. I mean, they did take a 13 year break once…
