It's been a monster year for Birds Of Tokyo ... an album that's nearly certified double platinum, multiple APRA Award nominations, a huge showing in Triple J's Hottest 100 and an ARIA Award for Australia's Best Rock Album.

Now the Birds are bringing it all to a close with the announcement of their last run of local gigs before heading into the studio for the summer.

Birds Of Tokyo: Closer will take the band full circle. In an unusual move, rather than playing enormo-domes they will instead return to the rock clubs in which they cut their teeth over the years prior to the release of their current hit album.

 "We've been lucky to play lots of really big venues and festivals over the last 12 months", says the group's frontman, Ian Kenny. "Those shows have all been fun but we're kinda missing the gigs we used to do where you can get up close to the audience and really see the whites of their eyes. We figured doing a tour of sweaty clubs would just be a fun way to bring this album to a close."

Hence the name of the tour ... Birds Of Tokyo: Closer.

The band has recently been working on new songs and they are expected to roadtest a few of them for the first time at these upcoming shows.

 It is important to note that no extra shows will be added to this tour so fans are advised to get in quick.
