Default Birds of Satan

New Taylor side project mentioned in today's rolling stone magazine.

According to the article, the band features chevy metal members Mick Murphy and Wiley Hodgden and they've recorded new material with a 9-and-a-half-minute title track co-written with Dave (Grohl).

Sounds like there may be some live shows coming soon.

What is the timeline for when people will hear Birds of Satan?
I'm hoping before the end of the year, I'm hoping we can get it out quickly.

Will you have time before Foos goes into full gear to do one-off shows?
I'll have time for that because we dip in and out working on Foos stuff. There's a bigger plan at hand for this Foos record. I can't tell you exactly what it is, but there's a bigger plan. There will be a week here and there and a weekend here and there. I will have time to do a bit of press and possibly one offs for Birds of Satan.

Look forward to hearing the tracks. I bet the chance of uk shows are slim though!

DEBUT ALBUM OUT APRIL 15 ON SHANABELLE RECORDS

PRE-ORDER LIVE NOW AT http://smarturl.it/birdsofsatan FEATURING INSTANT DOWNLOAD OF “THANKS FOR THE LINE”

Taylor Hawkins, Wiley Hodgden and Mick Murphy a/k/a The Birds Of Satan will release their self-titled debut album April 15 on Shanabelle Records. Recorded in less than a week’s worth of whirlwind sessions and preceded by a recently unveiled promo trailer http://youtu.be/yZR2w157jIg, the record is now available for pre-order at http://smarturl.it/birdsofsatan, with all pre-orders instantly receiving the track “Thanks For The Line.”

For anyone asking who/what/why are The Birds Of The Satan… Well, there may or may not be a clue in the lyrics of the instant grat track “Thanks For The Line,” but as to the musical nature of this beast: That question is answered in short order by the album’s opening manifesto, the near-10-minute “The Ballad of the Birds of Satan,” which progresses from a typically frenetic Hawkins drum salvo into an outright heavy-prog epic concluding with an undeniable boogie groove. The previously mentioned “Thanks For The Line” and the straight up hard rocker “Pieces Of The Puzzle” showcase the Birds’ unabashed (some might say shameless) love of Rock & Roll flash and grandeur, with Hawkins in fine vocal and drumming form (also contributing piano) aided and abetted by a magnetic chemistry with Hodgden’s bass and Murphy’s guitar. Elsewhere, sublime ballads “Raspberries” and the somber finale “Too Far Gone To See” showcase additional emotional dimensions of The Birds Of Satan sound-and if that gets too heavy, the listener can always skip back to “Wait Til Tomorrow” for the first documented recorded Van Halen style guitar solo of this decade.

The Birds Of Satan are Taylor Hawkins (vocals, drums, piano, guitar, keyboards), Wiley Hodgden (bass, background vocals), and Mick Murphy (guitar). Guest musicians on the eponymous album include Dave Grohl (guitar), Pat Smear (guitar), Drew Hester (percussion), and Rami Jaffee (keyboards), among others. The Birds Of Satan was produced and engineered by John Lousteau and mixed by Drew Hester. The complete track listing is as follows:

The Ballad of the Birds of Satan
Thanks for the Line
Pieces Of The Puzzle
Raspberries
Nothing at All
Wait Til Tomorrow
Too Far Gone to See

Just saw an article of this being in 411mania.com. My thoughts. Awww, man really? Another new band? Dang, I listened to the Coattail Riders' last album, a few months ago, liked almost every song of it, and wanted some more from them.

As for this one, I'll give it a listen indeed just to hear Taylor sing.

This is really just the guys in Chevy Metal getting together and recording some original tunes. I can't remember if it was an interview or podcast but Taylor said they recorded it really quickly, a week I think, and just wanted to put it out. I doubt this will turn into anything on the scale of TCV or even Coattail Riders.

It was a week. Hopefully they will make their way for a few shows over here.

I'm told it's highly unlikely there will be any/many shows.

I'd expect some in the LA area but there are no plans in place currently..

Guess we'll just have to wait and see what fits with foos schedule and whatnot.

I'd love to see a live show.

Never say never.

The first coattail rider tour didn't make it outside of the US from what I remember but we did get international dates for the second tour.
