White Pigeon are planning to go on tour in October across Europe and the UK to push their brand of rock music out across the globe and create a delectable rock 'n roll experience for a wider range of folk. We are trying to fund the tour from our own pockets, the sale of merchandise and also from this crowd funding campaign.

With the music business in its current state, touring has become increasingly hard. We need to pay for the agent to book the tour, rehearsals, channel crossings, fuel for the vehicles, trailer hire, accommodation and food whilst on the road. This will cost a great deal more than we are trying to raise, but every little helps and we appreciate any help with the costs.

We have released our debut album in 2013 ('Property of White Pigeon') which we will be selling on the road (along with T-shirts) to help fund the shows. This is available as one of the many rewards you can recieve for your donations as well as meals, signed photos, squash matches, video appearances, songs, gigs and demo tracks.

We have our regular frontman (Chris Nugent) along with Ed Forbes (bass guitar/vocals) and Alex Gregson (drums). Also joining us will be Johno Madgwick on guitar duties (Rival Empires, Black Iris) and Jemma Louise Crook on vocals (Nameless Girl).

If we raise any extra monies above our goal (from this campaign, or from selling merchandise on the road) this will all go towards the creation of our second album 'White Pigeon II' which is currently being written and will be recorded late 2014.

Please dig deep to help us fly the Pigeon across Europe and the UK. Spandex isn't cheap you know... 

Risks and challenges

All of our rewards will be able to be delivered on time. We already have most of the merchandise required, and the only mishaps that could happen on tour would be general problems that we can possibly face everyday (breakdowns, illness, spandex tearing, etc...).

It is a big job preparing a tour. Any additional merchandise will need to be designed and paid for, rehearsals will need to be organised and paid for. Accommodation has to be booked and routes need to be planned. It also takes it's toll financially as non of us will be working throughout the tour, therefore not receiving an income whilst we're on the road.

However, this is what we have been working for over the last four years, and if this tour is successful it will hopefully lead to more in the future until the stadiums can hold no more people.
