Two Beijing based rock bands are set to tour North America this summer.   

Birdstriking

Birdstriking 鸟撞飞机 is a noise rock band featuring members He Fan on vocals/guitar, Zhou Nairen on bass, Wen Yuzhen on guitar and Wang Xinjiu on drums.   CNN named Birdstriking one of the best young bands in China, and last year the band opened for the Brian Jonestown Massacre in the UK and headlined Hong Kong's Clockenflap festival.

Ricky Maymi of Far Out Distant Sounds and Nevin from Maybe Mars put the US tour together.   Two Headed Dog provided the Canadian booking.

Chui Wan

Chui Wan's sound is formed by the improvisational compositions of multi-instrumentalist Yan Yulong and guitarist Liu Xinyu. Bassist Wu Qiong and drummer Li Zichao round out the band.  Their music is inspired by the concept of seeking the infinite from the mundane with lush arrangements for guitar, keyboard, viola, other assorted instruments, and random sound samples.
