A LOT LIKE BIRDS RELEASE SONG/MUSIC VIDEO FOR “TRACE THE LINES”
Sacramento rock band A Lot Like Birds has released a music video for their new track “Trace the Lines” (ft. Conor Murphy of Foxing), here: https://youtu.be/XdZqbCbr3e0. The video is a continuation of the story that began with “The Sound Of Us,” which recently premiered via Noisey. “Trace the Lines” is the latest single from the band’s forthcoming album DIVISI, which will be released on May 5th, 2017 via Equal Vision Records. Pre-orders for the album are available now and can be purchased, here: alotlikebirds.merchnow.com.
“’Trace the Lines’ features our first ever guest vocalist. I wrote the string arrangement and intro to the song around the time when Foxing’s Dealer came out, and both Matt and I were jamming it heavily. When it came time to write vocals for it, we both had the thought that the part fit Conor’s voice perfectly,” guitarist Michael Franzino shares. “I had a mutual friend with him who connected us and it all fell into place. Conor is way talented; we’re very grateful for him making the trek out to Cali to make it happen.”
In support of the new album, A Lot Like Birds will be embarking on a North American headline tour this spring with Household, Hearts Like Lions, and OWEL. The tour kicks off in Albuquerque on April 25th, with VIP ticket packages, including an exclusive acoustic performance, available now, here: Alotlikebirds.soundrink.com.

After releasing three full-length albums, No Place (2013), Conversation Piece (2011) and Plan B (2009), signing to Equal Vision Records, and touring around the world nearly non-stop for five years straight, A Lot Like Birds began recording their fourth full-length album on April 19, 2016. Armed with a new lineup of Cory Lockwood (vocals), Michael Franzino (guitar), Ben Wiacek (guitar), Joseph Arrington (drums) and newcomer Matt Coate (vocals, bass), and working with Sacramento-based producer Dryw Owens (From Indian Lakes, Sianvar), the band entered the studio – unaware of just how much time, energy and passion would go into the process of creating this new album, that will mark a new era for the band upon its release.
An all-encompassing, all-consuming emotional experience, DIVISI is an album about life and death, and about love and heartbreak. It is about acknowledging your past and facing your future. It’s about starting over, without forgetting where you’ve been. And about remembering those who inspired you to be the person you are and the person you still strive to be. DIVISI is about the change and growth that A Lot Like Birds not only wanted, but needed.
DIVISI will be released on May 5th, 2017 via Equal Vision Records.
