During 2014 Birds of Tokyo based themselves in America; taking their music overseas for the first time. In between all the U.S. gigs and interviews they wrote and recorded four songs. Four songs about being a long way from home. Four songs about perspective being gained from distance. Four songs about trying to find connection in a strange new world.

Now those four songs are being released on a standalone EP called Anchor.

As the group's frontman, Ian Kenny quips, 'some people send postcards when they're away. Others post their travel pic's on Instagram. We decided to write a few songs inspired by our time in LA and we're sending those out instead'.

The Anchor EP will be available this Friday April 24 and the band will kick-start the release with the Anchor Tour, visiting Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane and Sydney from late May.

Tickets for the Anchor Tour go on sale to members of Birds of Tokyo's mailing list Wednesday April 22 at 12pm, then to the general public Friday April 24 at 9am.

Dates and venues for the Anchor Tour are listed below. Special guest at all shows will be South African born Melbourne based artist Ecca Vandal, so get down to the venue early.
