FasterLouder presents Birds OfTokyo and Silversun Pickupstour
Sun 20th Jun, 2010 in Local News
Two of the headline acts on the Coaster Festival lineup will tour Australia’s capital cities in September as Birds Of Tokyo hit the road accompanied by LA’s irresistible indie-rock prodigies Silversun Pickups.
The most recent tour from Ian Kenny and his Birds of Tokyo crew was acclaimed as “A truly beautiful, simply awesome performance from a band who deserve every award and accolade they earn” and with the additional lure of Silversun Pickups this is sure to be a must see tour.
Birds of Tokyo recently told FasterLouder that the new self titled album is “going to lose a few of the rocky fans” but the band is “really proud to stand by [ the album, which is ] probably the culmination of nearly seven years as a band. It’s kind of the first one we feel like stamping and say this is us.” While Silversun Pickups explained back in April last year that on their latest album Swoon they “made a conscious effort to change things up – we didn’t want to write a record that was just straightforward, and we wanted to add more moodiness into it.”
