Pigeon Detectives are an English band from Rothwell, West Yorkshire, who formed in 2002. They have been championed by such well known DJs as Steve Lamacq and Jo Whiley, and performed at the Reading and Leeds Festivals in 2006, where they were tagged “the band most likely to leap to the main stage in 2007” in an NME review. Up to the end of 2008 Pigeon Detectives had released two albums, selling over 500,000 copies together in the UK. It was announced on February 1st 2011 that Pigeon Detectives 3rd album called “Up, Guards And At ‘Em!'” will be released on April 4th. Pigeon Detectives is set to tour UK in 2011. Pigeon Detectives Tickets are available at Sold Out Ticket Market.
The band returned to the festivals in 2007 and again performed on the NME stage. They supported Dirty Pretty Things while they toured in spring 2006. In early November 2006 they supported fellow Leeds band Kaiser Chiefs, who are known to be fans of the band, on a number of occasions around Europe. On 8 July 2007, they played on the Radio 1 NME Stage in front of thousands at T in the Park. The performance was televised and shown later that day on BBC3. They went on to perform their biggest show ever at Oxegen 2008 which was beamed around Europe on MTV.
In January 2008, they headed into Monnow Valley Studios in Monmouth, Wales with producer Stephen Street to record their second album, titled Emergency. After finishing the Emergency tour at the back end of 2008 the band took a little time out. They have been demoing songs over the course of the year in between festival slots, the last of which is headlining the Underage Festival in London. They are also working on a new album. In October 2009, the band recorded and released a cover of “Tainted Love” (made famous by Leeds band Soft Cell), with all proceeds going to charity to help neglected children in Leeds. They recently posted a message on Facebook and Twitter saying that in the new year they’re flying to America to record their 3rd album. On 14 July they posted a message to say they were moving studios to complete the record, which is yet to have a release date. It was announced in April 2010 that The Pigeon Detectives will tour as special guests with Manchester band James in December 2010.
