Birds of Tokyo are an alternative rock band from Australia who rose to domestic mainstream success with their second album, Universes (2008). Founded in 2004 in Perth, Western Australia, the band is comprised of Ian Kenny (vocals; also of the band Karnivool), Adam Spark (guitar), Anthony Jackson (bass), and Adam Weston (drums). Birds of Tokyo made their recording debut in 2005 with a pair of EPs (Birds of Tokyo, One Way/Stay) released in association with the independent label Egg Records. The song "Stay" earned the band its first of many WAMi Awards (West Australian Music Industry Awards), this one for Rock Song of the Year. Two years later, Birds of Tokyo released their full-length album debut, Day One (2007), and won a pair of WAMi Awards (Favorite Newcomer, Best Male Vocalist). Their second album, Universes (2008), marked their mainstream breakthrough, peaking at number three on the Australian albums chart and spawning a pair of singles ("Silhouettic," "Broken Bones"). The band's eponymously titled third album was released by EMI in July of 2010. ~ Jason BirchmeierPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
