Covered in kudzu and swathed in a blanket of humidity, spanish moss, feedback and reverb exists Futurebirds; six Georgia natives who currently call Athens "home." In 2009, these folks self-produced and released the six song Futurebirds EP"one of undeniable character. Less than a year later, there was a full-length in the can. That album, Hampton's Lullaby, garnered praise for its Appalachian harmonies and ethereal melodies. The band toured, and continues to tour in 2011, in support of that collection of songs, as well as in anticipation of two upcoming releases. The first, Via Flamina, a four song collection of new originals and inspired covers, will drop on April Fools Day via multiple formats. Only a few weeks later, on April 19th, Autumn Tone Records will digitally release a re-mastered version of the original EP. Athens' own up-and-coming label, Holy Owned Subsidiary, will offer the EP on One Hundred and Fifty Gram vinyl in a package featuring art hand-fashioned by the band. Only Four Hundred copies will be available.
Futurebirds hopes to find your face in the crowd.
