The Pigeon Detectives, who burst onto the scene with their platinum-selling 2007 debut ‘Wait for Me’, are back with a new album and UK tour.
Vocalist Matt Bowman, guitarists Oliver Main and Ryan Wilson, bassist Dave Best, and drummer Jimmi Naylor hit Electric Ballroom in Camden on 15 March in support of fifth LP ‘Broken Glances’.
The album, preceded by the single ‘Sounding the Alarm’, marks a shift for the band.
“We started out on this insane journey over a decade ago and a lot has happened in the years that followed. The one constant throughout all the madness has always been you, the fans. It’s been a journey we’ve taken together and we’ve grown up on together,” the Leeds band said in a statement.
“This album is a documentary of that decade, it’s excitingly unapologetic in it’s effort to be different but at the same time it’s a respectful nod and dip of the cap to all our fans that have supported us and been a part of the adventure.
“This is an album from us to you. It’s a record you will be able to invest time in and enjoy for different reasons at different times on different days. It’s full of ideas and expression that we’ve previously not been brave enough to put on our albums, but this time it’s all here.”
The Pigeon Detectives, formed in 2002 by five childhood friends, followed their 500 000-selling debut with the gold-certified ‘Emergency’, ‘Up Guards And At Em!’, ‘We Met at Sea’, and now ‘Broken Glances’ (due for release 24 February).
