Four recluses from a remote community in Northern Vancouver Island with Stone Age synths and Flying-V bass guitars.

Western Birds were founded on the remote DeCourcy Island in British Columbia. The members descend from followers of Brother Twelve who remained on DeCourcy practicing Theosophy following the religion’s mainstream downfall in the 1930s. In this isolated community they developed their signature synth-based hard rock sound before beginning to tour through local communities in 2005.

In February 2006 they entered the famed Vancouver studio The Hive for one day to begin recording their debut EP To the Tip of the Nail. In the following weeks they completed the recording in their home studio, The Birds’ Nest. The cost of the completed recording was $466.87.

In May 2006 Western Birds will migrate eastward across Canada in support of To the Tip of the Nail.
