Liverpool’s BIRD are set to release their second single ‘A War’ from their debut album, My Fear and Me, released on Baltic Records on 26th May 2014.
After releasing two EPs (one of which was produced by composer and ex-The Coral guitarist, Bill Ryder-Jones) and continually touring the UK, BIRD have gained a large loyal following and garnered praise from all corners, including BBC Radio 1, 2, 3, 6Music and have even been invited to play sessions for Simon Raymonde (The Cocteau Twins/Bella Union). The Guardian, Metro, NYLON, NME, Q Track of the Day, TLOBF and Channel 4 are just some who have featured the band. They recently played at the BBC6Music Festival, and are currently on tour in Europe supporting Rodriguez playing to sold out venues of 3,000!
Support slots with Wild Beasts, Soley, King Charles, PINS, Poltergeist (Echo and The Bunnymen), Stealing Sheep and Rodriguez have cemented BIRD as a formidable live presence. They were invited in 2013 to play at Festival Number 6, The Great Escape and Liverpool Sound City.
