History

Founded in 2003,[1] BirdPen released several EPs in limited editions between 2005 and 2006. Those EPs were followed by the Breaking Precedent EP in 2008, and by the On/Off/Safety/Danger LP in 2009, with critics comparing them to Radiohead[1][2] Following the release of their album, BirdPen served as an opening act of the Archive's Controlling Crowds tour in Europe.[3]

BirdPen came back in 2012 with their second album, named Global Lows. Their 3rd record In The Company of Imaginary Friends was released in 2015 on J.A.R Records / Fintage Music. The band's fourth album, O' Mighty Vision, was released on 26 August 2016.

The 2012 album Global Lows was nominated for Best European Independent Album at the IMPALA awards.

The 5th BirdPen album "There's Something Wrong With Everything" has been announced for release in the Autumn 2018.
