The Pigeon Detectives

The Pigeon Detectives are back with the first single ‘Animal’ and announce a UK tour.

Having sold over 500,000 albums, The Pigeon Detectives are back with the first single ‘Animal’ taken from their fourth studio album due later in the year.


The track is now available as a free download via the bands website. The single will also be for sale via all good online retailers from 28th January 2013.

"Animal is one of those songs that we knew would work well in front of a live audience as soon as we started writing it. It's an exciting tune with a raw sinister edge to it, but it still retains all the catchiness usually associated with The Pigeon Detectives. We all agreed it was the song to set our stall out with and the in your face guitars is a statement of intent." Matt Bowman (vocals)

The Pigeon Detectives aren’t just still standing, they’re about to embark on their most honest, raw, real and exciting phase yet. We suggest you get on board.
