To coincide with the announcement of our O' Mighty Vision tour we are really happy today to release a Live EP of our show in Paris earlier this year. The Live in Paris EP is six energy fuzz filled songs taken from across the four albums we have released over the last few years, recorded live at Le Batofar, a music venue on a boat floating slowly on the Seine to a sold out crowd.
We take to the road again touring Europe in March 2017 playing our latest album O’ Mighty Vision. All tickets are available here www.birdpen.com/tour
BirdPen Live In Paris tracklisting:
1 - Like A Mountain
2 - Into The Blacklight
3 - Tookit
4 - The Chairman
5 - Off
6 - Only The Names Change
All tracks mixed by the masterful Yannos Chevrel.
Winter greetings to all you budding creatives out there, who wants to make a video for our next single Tookit? We thought it would be a nice idea to see how our fans see this song visually, so we are running a competition and asking you to make a video. The top three entrants will be screened on all our social media sites with the winner getting the official seal of approval to accompany the release of the single in March 2017, plus getting loads of free stuff including signed albums on vinyl and CD, free entry to a show of your choice plus a meet and greet with the band. Also some decent exposure of the video and links to your website.
Take the tune, load it in and let your visual imagination minds run free.
Format details and where to send your ideas are below. Entries open from now until February 10th 2017.
Good luck and cheers!

Winter greetings everybody. The electric fuzz from our recent tour has now settled to a gentle warm hum whilst we kind of hibernate for the remaining winter months. A massive thanks to everybody that came to a show, we had a fantastic time out on the road.
We have a great sale on the remaining merchandise and music we make, so take a browse over at the BirdPen shop and grab a bargain whilst you can. Look out for the great t-shirt & album combo deal, it's better than a greasy carcass bargain bucket, lasts longer and is much better for your soul! We now also have the awesome In The Company Of Imaginary Friends limited edition gatefold white vinyl available, these are very limited stock so grab one before they vanish down the doom groove music consumers rabbit hole. And for you retro collectors, a few white limited edition hand numbered cassette tapes of the album are available too. All prices include postage and packaging worldwide.
After mince pies and cheese we will be carrying on in working on new noise and melody. Keep checking your screens as messages will be shown.
