The messenger birds



The Messenger Birds is not a rock band. It's just two guys. But there is more to this two-piece than meets the eye and a lot of noise to back it up. The Messenger Birds have quickly gained a reputation for putting on an intensely loud and energetic live show, and if you weren't paying attention, you'd think there were five people on stage. With catchy hooks, monster riffs, and unapologetic lyrics, their Detroit brand of alt-rock is often reminiscent of bands like Queens of the Stone Age, The Black Keys, Arctic Monkeys, and even Rage Against the Machine.

In 2017, The Messenger Birds released their debut music video for "The Good Years" and a single entitled "Around the Sun," only to follow up in early 2018 with another juggernaut of a single, "self Destruct." The duo has toured the Midwest heavily over the last Year and a half, extending into Canada and the East Coast, recorded a live, analog studio session at Daytrotter, and supported national/international acts including The Fall of Troy, Wilson, Jessica Hernandez and the Deltas, Hinds, Bear Vs. Shark, Thunderpussy , and more. The Messenger birds also had their song "honest Lies" featured in youtube red series impulse and most recently premiered their music video and second single of 2018, “Phantom Limb,” via Consequence of Sound.
