Il Sogno Del Marinaio, the avant-rock trio formed by legendary bassist mike watt (The Minutemen, Firehose, Iggy And The Stooges), cult Italian experimentalist Stefano Pilia (Massimo Volume, In Zaire, Afterhours, Rokia Traore) and drummer Paolo Mongardi (ZEUS, FUZZ ORCHESTRA, Fulkanelli) announces today their third album Terzo and reveals EU/UK tour dates. Terzo is out on May 3rd 2024 on Improved Sequence. and it is an incredible document of a band that’s creating their own path, ascending to new heights while bending the traditional rock format. From sinewy grooves, to off-kilter jazz-skronk, post-punk freakouts, kosmische Hendrix stabs and furious angular funk, Il Sogno Del Marinaio’s new album literally breathes life, anchored by Watt’s low thud and spiel, Pilia’s fierce and celestial playing and Mongardi’s knack for unusual but steady rhythms.

Stefano Pilla and Mike Watt first met in 2005 while Watt was on tour in Italy with Raul Morales and Paul Roessler.

Pilla was acting as a road manager for the three musicians. Pilla and Watt kept in contact and, later in November 2009, Pilla invited Watt to Florence where Pilla introduced Watt to his friend, drummer Andrea Belfi. Watt decided to name the trio “Il Sogno del Marinaio”, which translates to “The Sailor’s Dream”. Watt chose an italian name in honour of his mother’s and band member’s italian heritage as well as his father’s maritime service as a sailor.

The band began a short tour of Italy almost immediately after its formation, and recorded its debut album “La busta Gialla” between shows only a week after the band’s inception […] After the second album “Canto Secondo” (2014) and several tour in Europe and US, in 2017, Belfi decides to leave the band to devote himself to his solo project. Paolo Mongardi has replaced him on drums sailing for the “Nuovo Spirito Tour 2017″…
