The Pigeon Detectives New Album ‘Emergency’ Set For May Release

‘EMERGENCY’ is the brand new album from The Pigeon Detectives and is released on the 26th May 2008 – exactly two days shy of a year after their debut‘Wait For Me’ came out.  It crashed into the charts at number three and has since achieved platinum status, a first for their independent label Dance to The Radio.    A single ‘This Is An Emergency’ is released on the 12th May, which some fans may remember from their sell out dates last year.  The group, who recently opened the NME Awards Shows with a blistering headlining appearance at the Astoria, head out for a full UK tour in May which over 70,000 people have already snapped up tickets for.

The band (Matt Bowman – vocals / Ryan Wilson – guitar / Jimmi Naylor – drums / Oli Main – guitar / Dave Best- bass) recorded ‘Emergency’ in Monnow Valley in Wales with producer Stephen Street and it’s currently being mixed by Cenzo Townshend with whom they worked with on the last record.   “Emergency could describe the last 12 months. It’s been fairly frantic, everything’s been going at breakneck speed between gigs and touring and festivals. I think we’ve definitely written a proper album rather than just a number of songs to play live,” explained Bowman.


The Pigeon Detectives turned down several (lucrative!) offers from other labels after the success of their first record – which produced 4 hit singles – in order to re-sign with Leeds label Dance To The Radio.  After all, they got it right first time around …
