A band who need no introduction, West Yorkshire’s finest hitmakers The Pigeon Detectives are back in 2013 with a brand new album, single and accompanying May UK tour including Birmingham’s The Institute.
The band 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, return with new single, Animal, taken from their upcoming fourth studio album. Premiered by Zane Lowe on 22 January, the track is available as a free download from the bands website until 28 January, when it goes on sale via all good online retailers.
“Animal is one of those songs 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 still standing, they’re about to embark on their most honest, raw, real and exciting phase yet. We suggest you get on board.
The Black Sea formed in mid 2012 and in a short time have gained a nationwide following and high acclaim for their thunderous live performances and inspired work in the studio. Debut single, Going Out, is released on 1 May 2013 and the band join Leeds legends The Pigeon Detectives on the road to promote the single.
“A gang of lonesome lovers, skeptics, dreamers and hopeless romantics making rock and roll”.
