Fans of The Birds Of Satan rejoice! The band have sneakily released a new song, “Be The Bird”!
The track appeared calmly on Spotify and iTunes today with very little fanfare.
Meanwhile, over on the website of the UK’s Rhythm Magazine, the following popped up:
“What would a song featuring Taylor Hawkins, Dave Grohl, Stewart Copeland, Zak Starkey, Stephen Perkins, Matt Cameron, Mark Brzezicki, Kenny Aronoff, Drew Hester and Butch Vig sound like? Pick up the new issue of Rhythm and you’ll find out!”
“Yes, there is an extra special treat for you in this month’s Rhythm – you’ll find an exclusive Birds of Satan track on your disc!”
“The song, Be The Bird, is no normal ditty either. No, it features the A-list drummers mentioned above solo-ing as if their lives depended on it.”
It’s safe to say that drummers – and those who love listening to them play – will get slightly excited around the 4 minute mark of this 7 minute plus firebrand of a song.
