The Messenger Birds Share “Big Brother” from Forthcoming EP

The Messenger Birds are back with new music. Comprised of drummer Christopher Williams and guitarist/lead-vocalist Parker Bengry, the duo debuted with Everything and Nothing last year. The 5-song EP showcases their fuzzy punk and blues rock sensibilities, and they treated “Sunlight” to an acoustic version live at Third Man Records last November.

Now with “Big Brother,” the two continue to cultivate their sound with a more soulful touch while still shredding out. This track comes as the first single from their sophomore release The Good Years, slated to come out on August 13th. Bengry says most of their inspiration behind this release is fueled by global, local, and personal conflicts. “The Good Years is almost an ironic title in itself because there is so much wrong with the world. You’ve got to take what you’ve got and do with it what you can to make the best of it. Find some small way to help make this a better place.”

The Messenger Birds celebrate the release of their new EP at Detroit Duo Fest at The Loving Touch in Ferndale. CDs and shirts are available for pre-order here.
