Stadium rockers Birds Of Tokyo have sent a missive from the studio as they head toward completing their next album.
Birds Of Tokyo have been working at Oceanway (birthplace of Tool’s Aenima and Radiohead’s Hail To The Thief) and Kingsize Studios in California recording the follow-up to their platinum-selling breakthrough self-titled album of 2010.
Guitarist Adam Spark posted an update on the progress today, revealing that Ian Kenny has almost finished his vocal parts.
Once the group vocals are completed (they were delayed due to a member with a sore throat), they will begin the editing process.
The post is certainly has a mystical air about it, and at one point he writes, “Whilst we are careful to avoid the dirty words of ‘concept record’, we need to have everything around the music to adhere to its purpose. No one makes us do this, right? So if we are doing this again…we really want to heighten the experience for you and also the band.”
He submits that “It’s all about creating something that hopefully has a really meaningful and sincere connection with people.”
He says the discussions about “artwork, photography, types of media / multimedia / interactivity, delivery, videos , alternate artworks / items / pieces” are underway.
Song titles mentioned include: ‘Boy’, ‘Ornament Hill’, ‘Blume / White Leaves’, and ‘C-Waves’, with sixteen tracks/ideas previously posted.
Theirs is no proposed release date for the album as yet.
