A Lot Like Birds’ constant musical evolution and entrancing live shows, combined with their down-to-earth personalities, proved to be just the right fit for Equal Vision Records, who signed the band in 2012. “Signing to Equal Vision used to just be a daydream for most of us,” explains lead singer Cory Lockwood. “When we were growing up and still playing in previous bands, Equal Vision was putting out CDs by incredible artists that we admire like Bear vs Shark, The Fall of Troy and Circa Survive.”
DIVISI is the band’s second release on the Upstate NY-based independent label, and the first featuring their brand new line up: Cory Lockwood (vocals), Michael Franzino (guitar), Ben Wiacek (guitar), Matt Coate (bass/vocals), and Joe Arrington (drums). The album, which represents a dramatic shift in sound and a new direction for the band, was released on May 5th, 2017.
