Sydney proto-punk pioneers Radio Birdman, have long been applauded for their work in the late 70s paving the way for the Australian music scene.

44 years on from the inception of that misheard Stooges lyric and after coming back for a double headline tour with Died Pretty last year (that coincided with the release of rockumentary Descent Into The Maelstrom: The Radio Birdman Story), the band is back for a limited number of Australian east coast shows before heading off on a massive European tour.

Testament to the longevity of the punk scene, the band is hitting up Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Sydney in September and October with tickets going on sale on 13 June.

Supports for the tour include Spain’s Los Chicos across all dates, Adalita in Melbourne, Hits in Brisbane and Sydney and The Sunday Reeds in Adelaide.

For those of you still with DVD players, Descent Into The Maelstrom is also scheduled for local DVD release in September.
