Hi. Ladies and Gentlemans…meet our new anti-single: The Gap…we just want an excuse to show people this song…and in a “live” way..if it feels like some sort of beautiful machinery breaking down and preparing to rebuild…I think it’s meant to! Kinda the point…and kinda relevant to our camp at the moment…in the best possible way
Here’s to Meccano!
Adam S on behalf of the broken bones…
It’s been a monster year for Birds Of Tokyo … an album that’s nearly certified double platinum, multiple APRA Award nominations, a huge showing in Triple J’s Hottest 100 and an ARIA Award for Australia’s Best Rock Album.
Now the Birds are bringing it all to a close with the announcement of their last run of local gigs before heading into the studio for the summer.
Birds Of Tokyo: Closer will take the band full circle. In an unusual move, rather than playing enormo-d0mes they will instead return to the rock clubs in which they cut their teeth over the years prior to the release of their current hit album.
“We’ve been lucky to play lots of really big venues and festivals over the last 12 months”, says the group’s frontman, Ian Kenny. “Those shows have all been fun but we’re kinda missing the gigs we used to do where you can get up close to the audience and really see the whites of their eyes. We figured doing a tour of sweaty clubs would just be a fun way to bring this album to a close.”
Hence the name of the tour … Birds Of Tokyo: Closer.
The band has recently been working on new songs and they are expected to roadtest a few of them for the first time at these upcoming shows. The complete September/October dates and venues for Birds Of Tokyo: Closer can be viewed in the tour dates section. It is important to note that no extra shows will be added to this tour so fans are advised to get in quick.
A special exclusive fanclub ticket pre-sale will be made available on Wednesday 13th July to those who have signed up to the mailing list prior to this date.
GENERAL PUBLIC TICKETS GO ON SALE FRIDAY 15TH JULY.
Please see tour section for all tour dates and ticketing information.
A very big hey to y’all,
My how a couple of months can fly by when you get up to good and perhaps the not so good! We played the travelling juggernaut that was the Groovin’ The Moo festivals, battled and lost to sand flies in Broome, challenged political comments on condoms in Darwin, embraced the beauty of the Tivoli, were joined by the masses in water taxis and ferries to Cockatoo Island and celebrated with our fine friends in New Zealand!
Birthday shenanigans were had courtesy of Adam Spark, but there’s no need to chat about turning 25 in the band news column. Mass kudos to you all for sharing these great times with us.
We hope you all had as much fun as we did.
Also, for those of you who missed out on our Debit MasterCard Priceless Music show on Cockatoo Island in Sydney recently, good news… 7 Mate are airing it TONIGHT at 10.30pm with MTV airing it on Sunday 19th June from 8.30pm.
So while we continue to put our heads down and tails up in studio land, as lets face it, we all have to wait for a new season of Sons of Anarchy, you can vote for Birds in Triple J’s Hottest 100 Australian Albums of all time HERE.
Now don’t cheat yourself and vote for records you think others will be proud of, vote for the albums that truly mean something to you!
That’s all for now, be sure to keep an eye out for some tasty news very soon until then…stay cheeky.
WHAT HAPPENS IN BENDIGO, STAYS IN BENDIGO!
