Birds Of Tokyo - Empire

One of my favourite bands from down-under, the alternative rockers Birds Of Tokyo, is releasing its new studio album today, November 4.

It's titled Brace, it's out via Universal Music Australia and was produced by Dave Bottrill (Smashing Pumpkins, Tool, Muse, Placebo, Rush).

This is what the band is saying to their followers about the new release: "Brace is out today. We hope you find some things in it that strike a chord. Lots of these ideas are close to our hearts and as YOU... our friends and peers are probably feeling too… the world could be better right now. So let's get a beer, throw around some air guitar and try work this out!"

Brace is darker, heavier and more intense than BOT's previous releases: "The whole reason we've written this record is to play it live. We have a lighting and visual show like nothing we've done before, so come see what we are talking about!"

The band is taking the new record on the road for a bunch of Australian tour dates in November and December, so if you there do yourself a favour and go see Birds Of Tokyo live.
