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 four or five people on stage. With catchy hooks, monster riffs, and unapologetic lyrics, their Detroit brand of garage/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." The duo has toured the Midwest heavily over the last two years, extending into parts of 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, Radkey, and more. If their recent history is any indication, expect a lot from The Messenger Birds in 2018.
