So we’ve been watching the snazzy countdown over at the PIGEON DETECTIVES official site over the last few days, waiting for the inevitable to happen. Today, it did – we reached O:OO:OO:OO…
So what apocalyptic event did the countdown lead into? Well, nothing quite so earth-shattering, but exciting nonetheless – we were pretty sure it would be a tour/album announcement.
Sure enough, we have news of a new UK tour which kicks off in Middlesbrough on Monday, March 28 and comes to a triumphant end with a Leeds Met show on Tuesday, April 12.
The band have been sneaking about the last few weeks with (slightly) hush-hush shows around Yorkshire, evidently honing their new tunes for hungry Pigeons fans.
They’ve posted a video on their site of new album track She Wants Me. So have we:
They have also annouced details of their third album, and they’re calling it Up, Guards And At ‘Em! which was recorded in New Yoik last summer. It’s released a week before the Leeds show on April 4.
