Having recently unveiled the details of their long-awaited sixth studio album ‘TV Show’, which is set to land on July 7th through Dance To The Radio, The Pigeon Detectives have now announced their plans for a UK-wide tour to celebrate the release of their new full-length.

Stretching across the first three weeks of November, The Pigeon Detectives will embark on an 18-date stint throughout the country, marking one of their most extensive run of shows in years. Tickets for the tour will go on presale this Wednesday 26th April at 9am via the band’s website, before going on general sale from Friday 28th April at 9am.

Produced by the renowned Rich Turvey (Blossoms, The Coral, Oscar Lang), their new album ‘TV Show’ looks to cement a rebirth within the band’s own legacy. After storming the stage at countless festivals in the summer of 2022, The Pigeon Detectives quickly became one of the more talked about names on the circuit once again, feeding the public’s need for anthemic indie-rock tunes after years of isolation and social distancing.

Speaking about the new album, they said, “Making music together for all these years has been the greatest gift of our lives. This album gives a nod to every step we have taken on the amazing journey we have been on as five scruffy friends from Rothwell, whilst also driving our sound to new, exciting areas. Above all though it is full of absolute bangers and we just can’t wait for everyone to hear it!”

To celebrate the release of ‘TV Show’, the band also set to embark on a number of record store show performances across the UK. Capping off with two dates at Leeds’ The Wardrobe, near where the album was written, a full list of live events can be found below. Ticket and album bundles on sale HERE
