Band Biographies: DEATH PIGEON

Back in 2013, I started writing a horror book, it was something I had all but given up with as I couldn’t finish it properly. I had submitted over 16 different endings and each one was as terrible as the last. Now and again I would go back through a writing phase and start more books, 5 of which I am currently close to completing, but it bothered me that I couldn’t complete my original story. I wanted to put music to it, but where do you start? how do you know if the people you get involved with aren’t going to try and take your idea, it was all far too much for me to consider so I shelved the project until I could complete the project. Fast forward to 2018, I started a new job and met a guy called Neil we became good friends as we are both into Heavy Metal, we would talk for hours and one day I announced I had a project but didn’t know what to do with it. I explained (very briefly) to Neil the concept and he said he liked it. He asked me to let him know once I had completed it, I chuckled and said something along the lines of, I probably never will.

At this point Death Pigeon was born, we completed a few covers and published them, they are now all in our first EP which is available on all streaming platforms, called “Vol 1: Light through the dark”. We got on well working together and with Neil being a very talented guitarist and producer it made things a lot easier, don't know if he would agree though 😜. But seriously, the project went off without a hitch.

At this point we were ready to start our main project, I came up with an ending I didn’t hate (too much 😜) and then started on 10 tracks, these tracks would become our debut album “Vol 2: The Rewiring of Humanity”. The rough tracks and general feel for the album were completed in July 2022, with everything else coming together between August 2022 and January 2023.

The album “Vol 2: The Rewiring of Humanity” is in my eyes, perfect, it's weird in such a good way, it tells a tragic story, it's brutal, bleak, and very technical.

The album clocks in at 28 minutes from start to finish and the now-finished short story “The Rewiring of Humanity” is 27 pages, (down from 300). We have tried to not keep you for too long, a nice short album you can listen to on your commute to work, and likewise a short story read in your lunch break.

Each chapter has the same name as the track on the album, the idea being if you like a track and want to find out more of the story behind it, you can find out everything there is to know.

The album and short story have both been released and can be found below:
