----STUDIO RECORD #3----
With pre-production finished in Perth prior to Christmas BIRDS OF TOKYO are heading to the studio today, January 4th, to begin their third studio album. We can't divulge too much information, but can confirm that the Birds are working very closely with Scott Horscroft (Silverchair, The Presets, Sleepy Jackson, The Panics) and will be spending the better part of the next 3-months abroad.
So, that's all we're giving you for now. Stay tuned for more!"
