Birds in Row Release New Single ‘Water Wings’

& Sign with Red Creek Recordings

French experimental punk / hardcore trio, Birds In Row have been at the forefront of their genre for a decade. Their lauded 2012 debut You, Me & the Violence released on Deathwish Inc. rocketed them from Laval-based unknowns to the world’s stage. Their exceptional 2018 follow up We Already Lost the World was an unyielding inferno of brazen ideas. It screamed for mutual respect in a world of increasingly extreme political divides, and used the vehicles of punk, post-hardcore and post-metal to carry its cries. 

Sonically, they’re fearless. Lyrically, they’re as poetic as they are recusant. And live, they’re a ruthless force, matching the power of their music with boundless, must-see energy. 

Today they return with an immediate and genre-bending epic, “Water Wings”. Its scraping guitar strums a ticking clock, counting down to the inevitable barrage of hardcore to follow. Of the single, Birds In Row tell, “The dreams that are imposed on us – of social success, accomplishment or, even, the vision of what happiness is – does not consider who we are or where we’re from. Those dreams aren’t ours, but are inherently ours. Being ourselves means struggling against these dreams that have been forced onto us.”

Equal parts obliterating as its melodic. This mammoth creation is filled with fury, aggression, and immense instrumentation which simply devours you. The colossal cymbal crashes and boisterous hits help sculpt the sonically alluring atmosphere, conjuring this intense tempo before Birds In Row alters the course with this unpredictable alteration into calmer, volatile passages, dynamically showcasing their endless range by moving into this harrowing journey capturing intricacies and endless hooks.

“Water Wings” comes alongside the news that the band have signed with Red Creek Recordings (founded by Johannes Persson of Cult of Luna and Alexis Sevenier from ORA Management) to release their third studio album later this Fall. Birds In Row have also announced a full October/November European tour. See below for a full list of dates. For more info go here… stay tuned for more.
