Hey Red Nosers,

My how quickly this year has gone, sure we say that every year but 2010 truly has been packed with one adventure after another!

We really can’t be happier that this year’s record has struck a chord with so many of you, so we’d like to take this opportunity to say thanks again as you have all been there each step of the way to keep our sanity in check. There were travels galore with shows abroad and full scale tours at home and 2011 shows so signs of slowing down.

While we’re not usually the most reflective or content bunch, we do realise that through hard work and genuine opportunity we have been fortunate enough to thoroughly enjoy this chapter of our lives, so on that note before we all choose to have our 12th beverage and 15th party pie, always spare a thought and a donation for those in need. Who knows you may end up feeling all warm and fuzzy or that could still be all the food and drink you’ve consumed in one sitting!

So while the Birds of Tokyo journey continues we ask that you stay safe on the roads during the silly season as we’d like to see you again in full voice starting next year at Southbound and Big Day Out!

Much love

This message comes to you from the citrusy world of the combined collective of the grapefruit gang.

So, it has been a cool couple of months in the Birds glass of gin. Lots of people showing support and saying nice things about us, which is always a nice feeling to say the least. You wonderful peepholes have shown much love by looking after us, and we are really lucky to have such great fans out there. Our record has now gone platinum and little ole’ Plans has pipped over 100,000 beans! Like edamame beans – an amazing starter! And speaking of cucumber in gin, we ended up walking away with our first ever ARIA Award for ‘Best Rock Album’ for 2010. It was pretty cool and again thanks to everyone for showing the love. It was definitely a very weird and unpredictable weekend to say the least!

In other news, the J award is also around the corner and while we have no expectation of winning things – ever – we are really happy to be in some fine company this year. And wish all of our other friends and artists a big congrats on creating some really beautiful work this year. It’s lovely to be thought of in the same company.

It’s a really cool time for the band except for the fact that summer is around the corner. In which case, we’ll all be very hot soon and looking forward to a summer full of festival gins and assorted citrus elements. We can’t wait to hit the Big Day Out festival lap, and we’re very pleased to announced two very special side-shows happening in January in Newcastle and Wollongong. Hoping all you folk can make it down to these very special shows!

Until then…

Grapefruit rules….and so does eggs benedict…
Oh and read playing beatie bow sometime…killer classic little book!

Hey there fine folk,

You gotta love it when the realisation sets in that summer is on it’s way. The warm weather that inspires going for a surf, having a BBQ or simply an excuse to get the lemonades flowing with friends! Here in camp birds we are privileged to be living in these feel-good times as the news of the week is that we have just been announced to perform at the 2010 ARIA Awards on Sunday November 7 at the Opera House. So get the make-up girls ready again, as our mugs are back on TV!! While Birds are up for six nods of approval, the most important gong is where YOU get to make all the difference as we have been nominated as the Most Popular Australian Artist in the first ever publicly voted category at the ARIA awards. So this is the one that counts and it’s up to you guys and gals to head to the site and simply click away HERE!

In other news, word on the street is that ‘Plans’ has been certified platinum (that’s over 70,000 singles!) and is officially the Highest Selling Australian Single Of The Year, so we’re officially handing over all bragging rights to you, the people who made it so…top effort. Speaking of singles, we recently shot a video for Wild At Heart in an enchanted forest which amazingly was tucked away in Dural, Sydney. While we’ve been lapping up the aforementioned warmth, this shoot swung temperatures in the much chillier direction…but I’m not giving anything away except for a teaser shot below as you should all get to cast your eyes upon the clip very soon. In the meantime, keep an ear out as our new single hits the airwaves in the coming week. We know we’ve made the right choice as every one of you out there with a set of pipes drowned out our in ear monitors on the recent tour…good work!

That’s all for now, we’ll say hi again from the Opera House!
