The Saddest Thing I Know – now in 3D!

The release of one of 2010’s most anticipated albums can now be announced with Birds Of Tokyo unleashing their self-titled new album on Friday July 23.

As fans come out in droves to see the band perform new material on their current national single tour, Birds Of Tokyo today also announce the release of a 3D music video for the bands new single “The Saddest Thing I Know”.

Using two DSLR cameras (7Ds) side by side, the boys of Birds Of Tokyo discovered a group of creative and innovative film makers who found their own way to create a 3D image, resulting in this unique video.

The 3D version of “The Saddest Thing I Know” video can be viewed on any screen, including YouTube via computer screens, with the red/green 3D glasses. Whether you’re in Buffalo, NY or Birdsville Queensland, check out the future of music video in 3D kaleidoscopic vision.

Wrangle yourself some red/green 3D goggles and enjoy!

The Saddest Thing I Know – Single and Tour

It has been an epic journey, yielding epic results, and Birds Of Tokyo are back home from recording their third album, and ready to hit the road.

Armed with their brand new single, The Saddest Thing I Know, Birds Of Tokyo will be performing throughout May and June across Australia, showcasing tracks from their forthcoming album, plus all of the fan favourites from the their Day One and Gold-selling Universes albums.

Plugged in and turned up to 10, this will be Birds Of Tokyo at their most ferocious.

Recorded as adventurously as it was written, creating the new album has already taken Birds Of Tokyo across the globe – recording in Sydney, Gothenburg, London and New York – but as the saying goes, there’s no place like home, and the boys are excited to be able to give their Australian fans the first taste of all things new.

And as lead single, The Saddest Thing I Know is Birds Of Tokyo at their incendiary best… a crack to the jaw powered by monster-sized riffs and spine-tingling melodies. A song with big enough balls to lead an entire album.

The kind of song made for the stage.
