Although the East is known for small waves, this band is a colossal sound-tsunami, and a perfect example of what music in 2018 needs: fierce sincerity, innovative visions, and instrumental excellence. Fly on Birdgangs, fly.
— Steve Yardley, Live Music Daily

BIO
Birdgangs are Boston & Brooklyn’s premier purveyor of East Coast Rock Garage Surf N Turf.  Formed in 2017 by friends Jack Davis (guitar/drums, lead vocals), Matt Bates (lead guitar), Julien Schremmer (bass), they released their debut EP ‘Maximum Suction’ in March 2018. Since then, Birdgangs have been gigging around the Northeast US, earning The Deli Magazine’s recognition as one of the Best of New England’s Emerging Artists. Their music “produces creative, cutting-edge surf music in the East with gripping honesty in the lyrics, surprising structural rhythms, and a zinging guitar fingerprint.” Influenced by the likes of Arctic Monkeys, Johnny Cash, and Real Estate, Birdgangs digests only the highest quality seeds to regurgitate a new strain of bird flu you never knew you wanted. Come out to a show, jump around, and say hi.
