Coo Coo Birds

At long last, Coo Coo Birds are releasing their sophomore album Psychedelic Warrior on November 23, and Jonny, Chuck, and Ryan are offering ten readers of The Bay Bridged advance digital copies of the record for free, and all you need to do is send us an email.

We’ve been writing about Psychedelic Warrior for more than a year now, and despite a couple delays in its release, the album is finally ready for public consumption. In a last ditch promotional push before the November release date, Coo Coo Birds are giving away 200 free download codes to fans and friends for advance digital copies of the album, which the lucky recipients will be able to use their codes starting on Halloween, and the band gave TBB ten of those download codes. Coo Coo Birds will celebrate this early, limited digital release with two shows this week – a secret TBA show on Halloween and an supporting gig for Lemme Adams on Friday at 500 Mason Social House.

I’ve had a chance to hear Pyschedelic Warrior in its entirety, and the record is another dose of revved up rock and roll with acid coursing through its veins, much like the band’s debut Don’t Bring Your Boyfriends. The tracks “Stop My Heart” and “Dealerman” previously premiered here on TBB during the tail end of 2012, and you can catch video of Ryan Zweng recording the vocal track for “Stop My Heart” below. In early 2014, Coo Coo Birds will also drop a 7-inch single featuring two non-album tracks, “Fantasy Baby” and “Little Red Riding Hood”, the latter of which is a cover of the 1966 song by Sam The Sham & The Pharoahs, and will continue with a handful of SF shows.

Below, find out how you could win an advance digital copy of Psychedelic Warrior, watch Zweng recording the vocals for “Stop My Heart”, and get full details on Coo Coo Birds’ full slate of upcoming gigs around the City.

To enter for a chance to win a digital copy of Coo Coo Birds’ ‘Psychedelic Warrior’, email with “Coo Coo Birds” in the subject line and your full name and email address in the body of the email. Winners will be selected at random and notified via email.

[Editor’s Note: Coo Coo Birds have made ‘Psychedelic Warrior’ available for a “name your price” download via Bandcamp, so we are cutting this giveaway short. Head over to their Bandcamp page to get your copy now.]
