Details of Pigeon Detectives and the Ticket Luck value
Formed in 2002, The Pigeon Detectives are an English band from Rothwell, Leeds. The group's members -- Matt Bowman on lead vocals, Oliver Main and Ryan Wilson on guitars, Dave Best on bass, and Jimmi Naylor on drums -- were mates from school and had known one another since they were 12.
The Pigeon Detectives started earning press attention for their gigs in 2004, and in 2006 they made their recorded debut with a limited-edition vinyl 7, I'm Not Sorry. On the strength of the single, The Pigeon Detectives scored an opening slot on a British tour with Dirty Pretty Things, and a second limited-edition single, You Know I Love You, hit stores in July (though this time 1,000 copies were pressed, as opposed to 500 for the debut).
On the August 14, 2007 the band appeared on the Jo Whiley show and preformed in the Live Lounge doing their current single Take Her Back and a cover of Avril Lavinge's Girlfriend. They have been championed by such well known PJs 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 a NME review.The band has supported a number of other aspiring bands while touring on a number of occasions around Europe. In spring 2006 they supported Dirty Pretty Things and in early November 2006 they supported fellow West Yorkshire band the Kaiser Chiefs (also band's fan).
Their debut album, 'Wait For Me', was released on CD/12 Heavyweight Vinyl & Digital Download on the 28th May 2007 by the label Dance to the Radio with whom they are signed. The album, recorded in the autumn of 2006, has been produced by Will Jackson (Kaiser Chiefs / Embrace) and mixed in part by Cenzo Townshend (Snow Patrol / Kaiser Chiefs / Bloc Party) and Steve Harris (The Automatic / U2). It sees the band deliver an urgent mix of up-tempo British indie rock, taking influence from the likes of The Clash, The Libertines and The Kinks. The singles 'I'm Not Sorry', 'I Found Out' and 'Romantic Type' are included. On April 11, 2007 the album seeped out to underground music download sites across the internet. The album charted straight in at Number 3 on The UK Top 40.
On the 8th July, 2007, they played on the Radio 1 NME Stage in front of thousands at the Scottish festival T in the Park. The performance was televised and shown later that day on BBC3.
The band will support the Kaiser Chiefs on two of their November/December UK tour dates, these being on December 1 at the Manchester Evening News Arena and December 15 at Earls Court in London.
