After taking a Thanksgiving break, Brad and Thomas are back with Episode 53 of Flock Talk. They start with a recap of the Texas run, then preview the upcoming weekend in DC. They also discuss the initial lineup for Domefest.
The initial lineup for Domefest 2020 has just been announced? Not too many surprises here, but I was a little surprised about Spafford (and where’s Goose? I know, probably coming later).
Before heading out onto their next Pigeons run, Brad and Thomas released episode 52 of Flock Talk. This week, they recap the Denver run, with analysis of each night, and give their thoughts about the overall sound and delivery of the shows.
Pigeons just announced their tour dates for Winter! This tour sees our feathered friends flocking west for a major west-coast run. Check out the dates in the graphic above, or check them out on the Pigeons site.
Tickets go on sale this Friday November 22 at 10AM Local, pre-sale tickets available tomorrow at 10AM using password “PRESTO”.
Pigeons has just announced the name and release date of their new album (and shown off art for it, seen in the image above)!
The album will be named “Presto”, and will be released on Jan 24, 2020.
Pigeons has just announced the launch of a new charity, Dawn a New Day Foundation.
From their website (dawnanewdayfoundation.org):
Established by Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Dawn A New Day Foundation provides the band and their ever-growing community with the opportunity to make positive change in the world. By donating $1 per PPPP ticket sales in 2020, and through fan donations and a variety of fundraising efforts, Dawn A New Day Foundation aims to raise funds and awareness for charitable organizations that are important to the band and the community that supports them. Pigeons Playing Ping Pong’s first official partner is Backline, the music industry’s new hub for mental health and wellness resources.
The website also has this quote from Greg that explains their goals:
“The mission of our music is to radiate positivity and spread joy, which is what Dawn A New Day Foundation is all about. We hope to channel that warm and fuzzy feeling and build toward a brighter future with the help of The Flock. There’s nothing more rewarding than radiating the kind of positivity you want to see in the world and then watching it ripple beyond you.”
We here at flockers are excited about the launch of this, and look forward to doing what we can to help further the band’s mission!
