Earlier today we announced that France’s dynamic hardcore 3-piece band, Birds In Row, are now taking pre-orders for forthcoming LP, You, Me, & The Violence via Deathwish Inc. If that weren’t awesome enough, Blow The Scene has been bestowed the honor of debuting never-before-heard song, “Police & Thieves” in the MP3 player below!
For the past several months, Birds In Row have been busy supporting a 2011 LP entitled Collected on Vitriol Records, which features the band’s now out of print Rise of the Phoenix 7″ and Cottbus EP (originally released on Vitriol Records in 2009 and 2010). With hundreds of shows, several tours, and appearances with the likes of Converge, Rise & Fall, Loma Prieta, Pianos Become The Teeth, and more, under their belts, the members of Birds In Row have quickly been amassing a loyal following of fans around the world. With an intense delivery of compelling hardcore that fuses meaty distortions with driving melody and emotional vocals, Birds In Row have crafted infectious movements that abandon traditional song structure. These diverse movements incorporate musical and vocal elements that cut a deep swath across multiple niches of hardcore and punk that will appeal to fans of 90’s screamo, as well as, the more traditional metal and hardcore enthusiasts.
We’ve been keeping close tabs on the band. We debuted an exclusive interview with the members of Birds In Row following our exclusive photo gallery when the band rolled through Philly during Converge‘s latest tour outing. If you missed either, be sure to check them out now for the inside scoop on the making of You, Me, & the Violence, history of the band, and more.
You, Me, & The Violence is currently being offered in three limited LP colors and in CD format via the hardcore fiends at Deathwish Inc. Do yourself a favor and get the jump on this rising force in the hardcore community.
