Pilot Speed (formerly known as Pilate) was a Canadian rock band that formed in 1999 in Toronto, Ontario. The quartet's debut EP, For All That's Given, Wasted, was released in 2001 which gathered attention from MapleMusic Recordings who later signed them. Their three full-length albums Caught by the Window, Sell Control for Life's Speed and Wooden Bones have since been released on MapleMusic Recordings in 2003, 2006 and 2009 respectively.

On June 26, 2006, the band posted a message on their site stating that, due to legal restrictions, they decided to change their band name before it incited lawsuits from companies outside Canada. As a result, they altered their name to Pilot Speed.[1][2] Their second album was then re-released in the United States by Wind-up Records with a new name, Into the West.
