Coming off of an impressive 2016 is Detroit blues-rock duo The Messenger Birds. Last year saw the release of the band’s sophomore EP, The Good Years, which was followed by an onslaught of shows all throughout the state. The band, comprised of vocalist/guitarist Parker Bengry and drummer Christopher Williams, has shown no signs of stopping—the duo continues to pick up steam with the release of their latest video, which Assemble Sound is proud to premiere.
The music video for the title track on their EP last year, “The Good Years,” was directed by Raymond Rivard of Tradesmen Films & Chad Nicefield of Wilson. Featuring a visual montage of church scenes and live segments, this video very accurately captures the essence of The Messenger Birds as creators and performers. “Cinematic” is probably the best word to describe this video and this duo—a grand and overwhelming force of rock music, both calculated and sophisticated in execution.
This Saturday, April 8, The Messenger Birds will join Handgrenades and Siamese at PJ’s Lager House. A “birthday” celebration of sorts for Bengry, Jo Champagne, and Jesse Shepherd-Bates from the three bands respectively, cover is only $8 and full event details can be found here.
