It’s finally here! We’re totally buzzing to unleash our fifth studio album ‘Broken Glances’ for your listening pleasure.

Here’s a brand new song to burn away the January blues…’Sounding the Alarm’.. you can download it and 2 more instantly when you pre order the album…

Pre order the album from our Store:

Pre order your download from various sites here:

Sounding the alarm represents a more minimalist and experimental side to the band..while still retaining the Pigeons signature of great melodies and hooks, we’ve tried to set these to a backdrop of instrumentation not usually associated with the band. Hope you enjoy the twist…

March Tour Tickets:

We started out on this insane journey over a decade ago and a lot has happened in the years that followed. The one constant throughout all the madness has always been you, the fans! It’s been a journey we’ve taken together and we’ve grown up on together. This album is a documentary of that decade, it’s excitingly unapologetic in it’s effort to be different but at the same time it’s a respectful nod and dip of the cap to all our fans that have supported us and been a part of the adventure. This is an album from us to you. It’s a record you will be able to invest time in and enjoy for different reasons at different times on different days. It’s full of ideas and expression that we’ve previously not been brave enough to put on our albums..but this time it’s all here, it’s all in this album for you to discover and be a part of…thanks for the amazing memories and please enjoy our latest album: Broken Glances.

The pre-order link for special packages includes exclusive merch and the only place to get signed CDs, posters and 12” vinyls. Order now before they’re gone!
