Planes Mistaken For Stars
Planes Mistaken For Stars (also known as Planes or PMFS) was a punk rock/hardcore punk band formed in Peoria, Illinois in 1997. They have released music on Deep Elm and No Idea Records.
In 2007, Planes announced that they would be disbanding following a final comprehensive US tour. Their final show was played on February 16, 2008 at the Marquis Theater in Denver supported by fellow local friends Kingdom of Magic and Mustangs &.Madras.
Starting in 2010, Planes Mistaken for Stars began to sporadically play shows and go on tour, starting with Fest 9 in Gainesville, Florida. Planes Mistaken for Stars toured the US East Coast in mid-2012, and the US West Coast in mid-2014.
Following a series of cryptic online videos with testimonials from Brann Dailor (Mastodon), Ryan Patterson (Coliseum), Nate Newton (Converge, Old Man Gloom) and Jeremy Bolm (Touché Amoré), the indie label Deathwish Inc. announced it would reissue Planes Mistaken for Stars’ 2006 final album Mercy on July 14, 2015, which would be followed by a short promotional East Coast US tour. Along with the announcement of the reissue, the band also revealed they had been “quietly and persistently working on new music” for a near future release also on Deathwish.
