Leeds quintet The Pigeon Detectives have today announced the release of their new album, 'Up, Guards, And At 'Em!', through the Dance To The Radio record label on 4th April 2011.

The album will be preceded by a new single, 'Done In Secret', which will be available on 7" vinyl and Digital Download formats from March 28th.

The album will be the band's third studio album and the first for almost three years since the release of 'Emergency' in 2008. The Leeds band's debut album, 'Wait For Me', was released in May 2007 and these two albums have now sold over half a million copies in the UK.

To coincide with the new album, The Pigeon Detectives will head out on a UK tour - including a date in Leeds at Leeds Metropolitan University on Tuesday 12th April - their first live appearance in the city since their SMILE! charity gig at the Cockpit in December 2010.
