Birds Of Tokyo bassist leavesthe flock

Perth rockers Birds Of Tokyo have announced that after seven long years together, one of their members is leaving the flock. Earlier this afternoon the band posted a message on their Facebook wall, announcing the departure of bassist Anthony Jackson.

The message read: ”We wish to announce that we have come to the end of a journey with one of our own. Our mate Anthony will no longer be playing with Birds. We have always believed in organic movement and following the heart and gut. We love our friend and sincerely wish all the best for him. We are very positive about the future and look forward to walking down some amazing new avenues shortly. Stay tuned.

The band’s Wikipedia page now lists Sugar Army bassist Ian Berney as a member of the band.

You can catch the new line-up playing the Grand Prix in Melbourne and Groovin’ The Moo Festival this May.

Not to be a TOTAL dick, but did anybody here ACTUALLY know the name of their original bass player?

Great, Birds of Tokyo took the bassist of a much better band to continue pelting the world with their MOR rock.

I am disappoint.

Great! Now the other three need to leave and the world will be safe!

Also, hope the bass dude can now go onto his true calling of professional wrestling. I mean, LOOK at him!

I doubted it for a while there. Glad to see Cheazor confirmed his gender though, removes a lot of the confusion.

You DOUBTED it? Have you seen those freaking SIDEBURNS?

I mean, he plays shit music but he's at least 340% man.

the singer waves his hands around on stage to distract people from the poor quality music
