Festive greetings from the Nest!
I hope this time of year has you feeling all Christmassy! It’s been such an epic year with Birdeatsbaby we felt it only fair to write a monster blog to remind you of some of the great and wonderful moments of 2011… I hope it’s been a great year for you all too
We’re hoping 2012 will see us continue to grow and change as a band and mostly looking forward to releasing our second full length album ‘Feast of Hammers’! It will be out in just over 8 weeks… so so soon…
Ok, so how do we sum up 2011? We’ll do our best…
Our original drummer Philippa left the band to pursue her film making career (check out her awesome stuff here). We plan on working on some new music videos with her very soon
…and our new drummer Charlie joined the flock… our new line up looked a little bit like this:
Music video for our song Rosary is released, directed by Dominic William Stoate. Watch it here.
We filmed this in his garage on a FREEZING cold day in January. One white dress was suitably ruined and everyone thought we were filming a porno! However, it does look beautiful. Watch the out-takes here. We still have some of the original rorschach images painted by Kelly Mariot, is anyone interested in receiving one? Let us know!
We flew to America for the first time as a band to record our album ‘Feast of Hammers’ with the incredible JASON RUBAL at Seventh Wave Studios, PA. This was AMAZING. And SO much fun. We also did four shows with This Way To The Egress and Mister Joe Black. Read the full blog about it here.
Garry and Mishkin with Jason and Michelle, Pennsylvania.
Us drunk in a photobooth, New York.
We conducted our first video interview where our fans asked the questions… watch it here.
We went to ROMA to play the Rock City festival with Belladonna…we should be returning to Rome very soon!
…played the Secret Garden Party where Mishkin met her double…
…and Charlie dressed as a dinosaur…
We played with She Makes War (incredible solo artist), who we will be playing with again at our ‘Feast of Hammers’ launch party in February. Tickets available HERE.
We also had a live session with Tony Marks on Juice FM.
We played our final show of the year with The Midnight Lycan Party. And got exceptionally drunk.
We are frankly, exhausted.
As a special Christmas gift to you, we’re revealing a very special acoustic version of one of our new songs, ‘ANCHOR’ as a live music video. You can watch it HERE.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
