The Broken Strings Tour
Release Date: 05/02/2010
Catalogue No.: BOT005
Record Label: Independent
Format: CD

In 2009 Perth rockers Birds Of Tokyo came up with an idea to show Australian audiences a very different and unexpected side to the band. By stripping their music back to the barest framework then rebuilding it with acoustic based sounds and delicate orchestration, Birds of Tokyo created a sonic concept that showcased the complexity and depth in their music, qualities that can often be overlooked in a full tilt rock show. Working closely with renowned producer, composer and long-time collaborator, Anthony Cormican, who had previously written and arranged strings on the band’s Day One and gold-selling Universes albums – Birds Of Tokyo have taken the wonderful ’90s format of the ‘unplugged’ show, and given it a healthy dose of grandiosity. Wanting the experience to be more daring and involved than merely picking up acoustic guitars and brushes instead of running with amplifiers and drum sticks; the band performed with a host of instruments - from ukuleles to 12- string guitars specifically incorporating them into an ensemble of string quartet and grand pianist. Intimate and unforgettable; the Broken Strings Tour is Birds Of Tokyo like you’ve never seen them before.
