New Album Slated For Early 2009

Tickets for Andrew Bird’s pair of intimate underplays October 6 and 7 at New York’s Hiro Ballroom sold out completely within two hours of going on sale yesterday morning.

The October shows mark Bird’s first NYC headline engagement since his sold out November 30, 2007 Beacon Theater date and are likely to feature selections from his as yet untitled next record, due out in early 2009 on Fat Possum. His previous full length, Armchair Apocrypha, was released in March 2007 to uniformly stellar reviews, debuting at #76 on the Billboard 200 album chart and since surpassing the 100,000 sales mark.

Upon the completion of the itinerary below, Andrew Bird will head back into the studio to put finishing touches on the new record. For further information, contact Steve Martin or Laura Eldeiry at nasty little man 212 343 0740 or
