Birds of Tokyo light up with Lanterns

While most Australians were at the beach, Birds Of Tokyo were building their own head of steam. Hot on the heels of acclaimed summer sets at festivals like “Rock It” and “Homebake”, the revamped band just dropped a dreamy new single and video for an anthem called ‘Lanterns’. The epic song has already shot to #3 on iTunes in its first days of release, amping up an already growing buzz for their fourth studio album ‘March Fires’ (released Friday March 1) and the tour of the same name which kicks off that week. Extra dates for their ‘March Fires Tour’ have recently been announced (see below) and tickets are selling fast for all shows. ‘Lanterns’ is the follow up to the Gold selling ‘This Fire’ EP, which was triple j’s #1 most played and most requested song for several weeks late last year. Lifted from the highly regarded ‘This Fire’ EP the title track unveiled the new Birds Of Tokyo lineup and gave their rabid fanbase a first taste of the fresh sounds they can expect on ‘March Fires’. Featured on the current Summer promo for Channel 7’s No.1 rating show ‘Revenge’, the video for ‘Lanterns’ has just been unveiled and was directed by the ARIA Award winning Josh Logue (Hilltop Hoods, Empire of the Sun, The Rubens).
