Built on a foundation of 10 year friendships and a desire to play exciting music to packed venues, The Pigeon Detectives (average age 22) have taken influences from Rolling Stones, The Cure, The Stooges to name but a few to fashion a savvy sound thats impressing folks
with every show.
Romantic Type is the follow up to Top 40 single “I Found Out” which was the first full release by The Pigeon Detectives. Romantic Type
is released on 26th February through Dance To The Music.
While the world relaxed for Christmas, The Pigeon Detectives went to work… Cenzo Townshend (U2, Snow Patrol, Kaiser Chiefs) put his magic on the track at Olympic Studios. Straight from the mastering the band handed the hot goods to the Kaiser Chiefs in a London pub and within the hour they played it as Hottest Record In The World sitting in for Zane Lowe, announcing the band will be supporting them on their UK tour. Annie Mac followed hot on their heels sitting in for Jo Whiley the following morning. Happy New Year indeed.
Everyone from The Sun to NME have proclaimed The Pigeon Detectives as one of the Top 10 new bands for 2007.
