The Pigeon Detectives – New Album, Single And March / April Tour

Pigeon Detectives  are pleased to announce details  of  a new single , a new  album and their first UK  headline shows since selling out London’s  Alexandra Palace   at  end of 2008. In the interim , the band took leave before recharging and have  spent the past year writing and demoing   in New York before recording in earnest  in the Autumn of 2010,.

Recorded at Brooklyn Recording Company  with Justin Gerrish taking on production and mixing duties, the album ‘UP,GUARDS AND AT ‘EM!’’ will released on 4th April through Dance To The Radio and will be available on vinyl, CD and digitally via all usual outlets. The full tracklisting:
