Broken Strings tour comes to an end.

After sold out shows in Perth, Brisbane, Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne, the Broken Strings tour has come to an end.

A huge thanks goes out to the Anthony Cormican for his brilliant strings compositions, the ‘Birds Strings’ players (Matt, Rebecca, Ben and Cerys), to all of the bands crew and production staff, but especially to the fans, who helped make the tour such a memorable experience.

It doesn’t end here though. Already the wheels are in motion to begin editing, mixing and mastering for the live CD and DVD release.

We’re hoping to get these out by the first week of February (hopefully a little earlier to those who pre-ordered at the show).

If you would like more information on how to pre-purchase the album, please enter your details into the form on the right and we’ll be in touch to let you know more.

Again, thanks to all of you for coming to the show and supporting Birds on their most ambitious, challenging and rewarding expedition thus far.
