Hello everybody, Ashton and I are happy to let you all know that we just finished mixing 10 new tracks for our brand new album! we recorded at Manny Nieto Estudio in LA and got a real big raw sound that we dig! Deaf Nephews were on board once again with mind expanding ideas. We did all the tracking in 6 days in October but had to take a break to tour Europe in the winter and we just finished the overdubs and mixing at Nephews closet. We'll keep you all posted on when and where the release dates will be but in the mean time we hope you all enjoy the new jam streaming from our myspace page! thanks to jon mccowen for laying down the sweet saxophonage! OH! and we're doing a small tour through the Southwest so check the tour dates and come say hey!
Yours always, THE TWEAK BROTHERS OF BIRD
01/22/2010 EU/UK WINTER TOUR LOOKING BACK...
Had a blast this winter in Europe and the UK! Was our first big tour overseas so we'd just like to give a BIG thanks to Bob at Belmont Bookings and all the folks who helped make out trip a great one! Thanks to all those who hosted us, played with us, cooked us meals, let us sleep on their floors and told us jokes that we didn't get! Oh and also thanks to the undercover Slovenian drug agents who pulled us over, patted us down, searched us and our van with drug sniffing dogs and cross referenced our personal information from your mobile high-tech intelligence office in the back of your unmarked cargo van. At least you were gentlemenly about it.
Sincerely, TWEAKEST BIRD
11/01/2009 happy halloween + NEW MUSIC + more touring
We've been working on making a new record. It will be our first full length album filled to the brim with all new songs. We did the tracking at manny nieto's studio in LA and had a real good time. Deaf Nephews were on board once again to produce the record and help keep the crying to a minimum. We'll be adding the final touches in the next couple of weeks and hope to have a few mixes finished soon after. Look for some of the new songs to be released early next year. Also later this month we head to Europe and then the UK for our first official overseas tour so check out the tour page for all the cities and dates. We hope to see some of you there ...bring your mittens!

01/20/09 RESERVATIONS ON VINYL
So our little EP called RESERVATIONS is on its way to the pressing plant to be made into 12" records thanks to our friends Charlie and Jon at White Noise and I Hate Rock N' Roll (respectively). Look for the limited pressing (500) on green vinyl in March and get 'em when you can cause they probably won't last the summer.
