Birds Of Tokyo bassist leaves the flock

Perth rockers Birds Of Tokyo have announced that after seven long years together, one of their members is leaving the flock. Earlier this afternoon the band posted a message on their Facebook wall, announcing the departure of bassist Anthony Jackson.

The message read: “We wish to announce that we have come to the end of a journey with one of our own. Our mate Anthony will no longer be playing with Birds. We have always believed in organic movement and following the heart and gut. We love our friend and sincerely wish all the best for him. We are very positive about the future and look forward to walking down some amazing new avenues shortly. Stay tuned.

The band’s Wikipedia page now lists Sugar Army bassist Ian Berney as a member of the band.

You can catch the new line-up playing the Grand Prix in Melbourne and Groovin’ The Moo Festival this May.
