The Pigeon Detectives: new single and album + gigs

The 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.

The entire experience has been a new one for the quintet from Leeds whose two previous albums – which have now sold in excess of half a million copies in the UK , were written and recorded on home turf and the first fruits of which will be the brand new single ‘Done In Secret’ .

Recorded at Brooklyn Recording Company with Justin Gerrish taking on production and mixing duties, the album ‘UP,GUARDS AND AT ‘EM!” will be 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:

1. ‘She Wants Me’
2. ‘Lost’
3. ‘What Can I Say?’
4. ‘Need To Know This’
5. ‘Done In Secret’
6. ‘What You Gonna Do ?’
7. ‘Turn Out The Lights’
8. ‘Through The Door’
9. ‘Go At It Completely’
10. ‘I Don’t Know You’
