The Pigeon Detectives are an English band who originated from Rothwell in Leeds, they formed in 2002.[3] They have received praise by such well known DJs as Steve Lamacq and Jo Whiley, and performed at the Reading and Leeds Festivals in 2006, where they were "the band most likely to leap to the main stage in 2007” in an issue of the NME.[4]

They supported Dirty Pretty Things whilst they toured in spring 2006. In early November 2006 they supported The Kaiser Chiefs, who are known to be admirers of the band.
