Formed in Perth back in 2004, Birds of Tokyo have grown from independent roots to become one of Australia’s
most popular contemporary rock bands. Songs like 'Plans', 'Lanterns', 'This Fire', 'Anchor' and 'I’d Go With
You Anywhere' have all been top 10 airplay hits and have lead to appearances at every major festival in this
country including Falls Festival, Splendour in the Grass and Groovin the Moo, as well as headlining slots at the AFL
Grand Final and NRL’s flagship State of Origin game.
Over the years the band has had 11 separate songs make triple j’s Hottest 100 including breakthrough hit 'Plans' which ranked #4 on the 2010 countdown. 'Plans' was taken from Birds of Tokyo's self-titled third studio
album, which went double platinum and spent over eight months in the ARIA top 20. The eponymous
release received the ARIA Award for Best Rock Album.
Subsequent records have helped the band carve a singular career for more than a decade, including
2012’s March Fires, which debuted at #1 on the ARIA Album Chart and produced triple-platinum radio
hit 'Lanterns', gold-certified EP Anchor (2015) and 2016’s top #3-peaking album BRACE.
More than 70 Birds of Tokyo songs have featured on triple j, making them one of the station’s three most
played artists of this millennium. The band are also the only artist in history to win 'Rock Work Of The Year' on
five separate occasions at the prestigious APRA Awards.
