With the most played track on Triple J and a new album landing November 4th, those recently announced Birds of Tokyo national tour dates will go on sale this morning at 9am.
Being their first national tour in over a year, tickets are expected to be snapped up quickly. Re-cap the tour dates below.
The group unveiled the dark, dystopic feel of their new material at a special secret gig in inner Sydney a few weeks ago. This forthcoming run of dates will see Birds of Tokyo bringing that same epic rock show to all parts of the country.
“When we were writing and recording we kept talking about how we wanted to make a really dark and intense rock record that would be great to play live. So we can’t wait to finally crank out these new songs as well as lots of others at some gigs.“
If you missed it earlier, listen to the title track from new album ‘Brace‘ below.
Over recent years highly melodic radio staples like ‘Plans‘, ‘Wild At Heart‘, ‘Lanterns‘, ‘This Fire‘ and ‘Anchor‘ have brought Birds Of Tokyo multiple ARIA and APRA Awards plus a string of platinum plaques making them the country’s most popular contemporary rock band. But this new album sees them torching that formula and embracing a heavier, more urgent attitude; making good on the title track’s tidal wave promise to “destroy it all”.
The relentless ten song set was produced with Canadian David Bottrill who has helmed releases for Tool, Muse and Silverchair. Together they’ve created a bold and uncompromising piece of work making last night’s Carriageworks show nothing less than a statement of intent.
‘Brace‘ will be released on November 4th. You can pre-order digitally on iTunes [Here]. Limited signed CD copies can also be pre-ordered [Here].
