We are very honoured to have been selected as one of the Belgium bands at the Eurosonic Noorderslag in the Netherlands.
Hope to see you in Groningen on the 14th or 15th of January.
Working hard at the moment. Release show and following tour soon to be announced.
Hope to see you in summer!
We’re a bit quit at the moment. But that’s not because we are up in the trees but because we are working on our new album at the moment: “on recording birds”
We recently got a very nice cover and interview in ZONE 02 (and soon also in ZONE 03)
“Tenzij u ten tijde van The Madcap Laughs nog met Syd Barrett aan lsd-tripjes zat te likken op een Londense zolderkamer, is deze Birds-ervaring er een zoals u die nog nooit meemaakte.”
On Recording The Sun, their debut album to be released this very week by Munich Records!!! The cd will be for sale on the 9th of May. (Vinyl soon to follow.) Birds will celebrate this most joyhippiedoodahful event on the beautiful first of May with a live show at De Monty in Antwerp. They’ll perform the songs from their new cut album with befriended musicians as Micky Peeters, Bjorn Erikkson, Piet Stryckers and Patrick Denecker. A true psychfolkfest on Beltane… Come Off!

In 2011 Birds That Change Colour stopped being Antwerp’s best kept secret when they published their suprising debut album “On Recording The Sun” (Munich Records). This ‘little masterpiece’ (de Morgen 2011) harbours some captivating songs whose mesmerizing undertow might just lure you back to the late sixties.
In August 2014 their long-awaited second album On Recording Birds will come out on Waste My Records. For this album Birds retreated into the forests of The Ardennes to make outdoor recordings.
On this wonderful collection of new original songs Birds play with the hands of time deep in the woods, where the roots of American and British music magically intertwine.
On Recording Birds will be an album to cherish like a warm spring day in the middleof a long and dreary autumn.
