A Lot Like Birds is a 6-8 piece Progressive/Post-Hardcore outfit from Sacramento, CA known for their tendency to experiment with severaldiverse genre influences and their incorporation of orchestral and ambient sound-scapes contrasted by chaotic, schizophrenic episodes. OnJanuary 9th of 2011, A Lot Like Birds announced that Kurt Travis (Ex of Dance Gavin Dance, Five Minute Ride, No Not Constant, and O! theJoy) would be the new singer and second front-man, alongside Cory Lockwood. With their acclaimed addition, the band quickly signed toDoghouse Records (All American Rejects, Say Anything, The Get Up Kids) and acquired The Artery Foundation (Asking Alexandria, DanceGavin Dance, Alesana) as management.

Their debut album Plan B was the brainchild of the band’s guitarist/original vocalist Michael Franzino, who invited several talented musicians inthe Sacramento scene (Including various orchestral instrumentalists and a female vocalist) to perform on the record. They spent their first yearof existence diligently perfecting their live set, building their fan base, and most recently, writing their sophomore album as a collaborativeeffort. Their live set is known for setting deep moods that swing from thoughtful, emotional build-ups to body-moving, epic climaxes.

In June of 2011, A Lot Like Birds entered Interlace Audio recording studio with Producer/Engineer Kris Crummet (Closure In Moscow, FearBefore, Dance Gavin Dance) to record their second full length album "Conversation Piece", which will be released on Doghouse Records onOctober 11th. « hide
