THE PIGEON DETECTIVES+ THE MEXANINES + THE DEAD BLUES
A band who need no introduction, West Yorkshire’s finest hitmakers The Pigeon Detectives are back in 2013 with a brand new album. Following their amazing performances in May, the band head back out on the road this October stopping at Wolverhampton’s Slade Rooms along the way.
The five-piece who have sold over 500,000 albums, played multiple Reading & Leeds festivals, and been championed by the likes of NME, Steve Lamacq and Jo Whiley, returned in January with the excellent single ‘Animal‘ taken from their fourth studio album We Met At Sea.
“Animal is one of those song that we knew would work well in front of a live audience as soon as we started writing it. It’s an exciting tune with a raw sinister edge to it, but it still retains all the catchiness usually associated with The Pigeon Detectives. We all agreed it was the song to set our stall out with and the in your face guitars is a statement of intent.” - Matt Bowman (vocals)
The Pigeon Detectives aren’t just standing still, they’re about to embark on their most honest, raw, real and exciting phase yet. We suggest you get on board.
New album We Met At Sea is available now via Cooking Vinyl.
