Wildbirds & Peacedrums is set to tour North America this Spring. These dates are in support of their release Rivers (The Control Group) and their first N.A. dates since supporting Lykke Li and St. Vincent respectively in 2009 & 2010.
Rivers is a double release of two distinctly different, five-song EP’s: Retina and Iris and also features the 12-strong Schola Cantorum Reykjavík Chamber Choir (same choir used by Björk on Medulla). The twin EPs were carefully developed by both Mariam Wallentin and her husband, drummer Andreas Werliin.
Wildbirds & Peacedrums will also be part of the 20 person super-group coming together for the Congotronics Vs. Rockers European festival tour this summer. The super-band will feature 10 Congotronics musicians and 10 indie musicians including Juana Molina, Deerhoof and more.
