Birdmonster said it best in a recent email explaining their whereabouts: “My, my. It’s been a while, hasn’t it? We’re sorry. We missed you too. We were just waiting for that special time between the Harold Camping-sponsored apocalypse and the Mayan-flavored cataclysm and that time is now.”
It’s true that Birdmonster activity has slowed a bit since 2006’s No Midnight, 2008’s From the Mountain to the Sea, and 2009’s Blood Memory (especially given the recent solo adventures of Sonny Pete). However, a new single from Birdmonster, “Living”, is available now: upbeat, rhythmic indie rock, with an underlying pulse of folk that brings us back to the heart of the band.
Birdmonster are scheduled to celebrate the release of “Living” by playing Bottom of the Hill tomorrow night (Saturday, 1/28/12, 10:00pm, $12, 21+), with Sorryeverafter and IFFG. Those who attend the show will receive a code to download “Living” for free (or, those interested can download the track from the above link).
We have a pair of tickets to give away to tomorrow’s Birdmonster show! To enter, send an email to email@example.com – the THIRD person to enter will win!
