After rumours and hints of an EP release earlier this month, this week Birds Of Tokyo have premiered their new track ‘Anchor’ from their EP with the same name. The Perth band also announced exciting news of a national tour, with tickets to be released April 24 – the same day their new EP will be released.
Written and recorded in LA, front man Ian Kenney explained “Some people send postcards when they’re away. Others post their travel pic’s on Instagram. We decided to write a few songs inspired by our time in LA and we’re sending those out instead”.
Birds of Tokyo returned to Australia just a few months ago and plan in the upcoming months to tour the country with Melbourne-based punk singer Ecca Vandal. Starting with headline sets at Darwin’s Bass in the Grass festival and Perth’s State of the Art Festival, Birds of Tokyo will continue with shows in Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane and Sydney.
While the EP Anchor will feature four new songs, fans can expect to hear even more new music from Birds of Tokyo, with 30 tracks currently at various stages of completion and a new album that is set for release next year.
