Birdeatsbaby

Birdeatsbaby Birdeatsbaby is a Brighton, UK chamber rock / prog-punk / dark cabaret four-piece, of Mishkin Fitzgerald (lead vocals, piano), Tessa Gilles (violin, vocals), Garry Mitchell (bass, guitar) and Katha Rothe (drums). The band was formed in November 2007, followed by début album Here She Comes-a-Tumblin' (Jun 2009, self-released). Their latest album is The Bullet Within (Jul 2014, Dead Round Eyes).

Not fitting current musical trends, Birdeatsbaby's sound is fast-paced with complex drums, and piano / bass / violin generally combined for dramatic / catchy choruses. Like a more hyper-active Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, meets a slightly depressed Freddie Mercury. Descriptions of the band have included: 'an unhinged burlesque brand of freak-pop' and "Twin Peaks on snuff."

Birdeatsbaby leapt to notoriety with the YouTube for Here She Comes-a-Tumblin's lead single "The Trouble..." (Apr 2009, Nothing to See Here), which has received 237K views (as of Oct 2014 - risen from 100K views by mid-2011). The band used their own music video director, their former drummer, Philippa Bloomfield.

In 2010, they released follow-up EP Bigger Teeth, produced by Marc E Norris (of The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster). Birdeatsbaby have toured extensively in the UK, Europe and U.S. – playing with many, inducing: The World/Inferno Friendship Society, Italian band Belladonna, Thomas Truax and prestigious producer Jason Rubal on their album Feast of Hammers (Feb 2012, Dead Round Eyes).
