Birdtalker have announced their self-titled sophomore album will drop on October 8th via AntiFragile Music. Ahead of the release, the Nashville-based band have shared the album track “Old Sob Story”.

The self-titled effort is the follow-up to their 2018 debut One. With their new album, Birdtalker find solid ground and step into their own with their most confident and unrestrained set of songs to date. Their new single “Old Sob Story,” is a rollicking song exemplifying the band’s newfound creative freedom. Full of bravado and sass, it brazenly marches into new distortion-soaked sonic territory.

“‘Old Sob Story’ is about getting out of the head and into the body and a deeper sense of knowing,” stated the band. “It feels like an echo of ‘Heavy,’ but instead of being sensitive and melodramatic, we’re very open-handed and unabashed, almost silly. Lyrically, it’s got a ‘fuck this I’m tired of myself’ vibe; just done with the old and ready for the new.”

This fall, Birdtalker will hit the road on an extensive 30+ date nationwide tour in support of their new album.
