Indie rockers The Pigeon Detectives will be bringing their well-known energy to Bristol during their tour of the UK, as they prepare to perform on board one of the city’s most famous boats.

Thekla is a boat on Bristol’s harbour which has become one of the city’s best-known music venues, and The Pigeon Detectives will soon become the latest band to grace its stage.

The Pigeon Detectives will release their fifth album – Broken Glances – in February and have just announced a nationwide tour in March.

The band formed in Leeds and they have been making music together for 13 years, but the group did not achieve true fame until 2007, when they released debut album Wait For Me.

The album included some of the band’s best-loved tracks including I’m Not Sorry, Romantic Type and Take Her Back.

The band have played at numerous festivals including Reading and Leeds, Glastonbury and T In The Park. They have also completed multiple tours across Europe.

The Pigeon Detectives will be at Thekla, in East Mud Dock, at 7pm on March 13. The gig is not suitable for people aged under 14.

Tickets, priced £16.50, are available from Bristol Ticket Shop, in High Street, by calling 01179 292008 or via
