It's been two years since No Bird Sing stopped by The Current studios, and a lot has changed in that time. The trio is releasing new record Definition Sickness on their new label home Strange Famous Records, Joe Horton started hip-hop collective FIX with Kill The Vultures and Kristoff Krane and drummer Graham O'Brien built Bellows studio in downtown St. Paul.

Through all of that, the band managed to bring together a slew of guest collaborators for this new release including Sadistik, Chastity Brown, James Diers, Aby Wolf, and Molly Dean. The talent permeating Definition Sickness has given the band their highest exposure yet, and the guidance of Sage Francis and his record label has continued to propel them forward.

Songs performed: "Fashionable Cannibal," "Apogee feat. Aby Wolf" and "Freedom Slave"
