The pigeon detectives this is an emergency

Emergency is the second album by Leeds band, The Pigeon Detectives. The album was released on 26 May 2008, just under a year after their platinum debut selling album, Wait for Me. The album was produced by Stephen Street who has produced for bands such as Blur, Babyshambles, The Smiths, Feeder and Kaiser Chiefs.


The first single from the album was "This Is an Emergency" on 12 May 2008, which was first played by Radio 1 on 24 March 2008.

The album was subject to an early leak onto the internet on 1 May, and spread via P2P networks. Unlike many early album leaks, the audio files that were distributed on the internet were of a high quality, and not highly compressed files.

The album peaked at number five in its first week but fell out the charts quickly, spending three weeks in the top 40. Following the release of the second single, "Everybody Wants Me", the album re-entered the top 40 again for another three weeks. Upon its release, it received mixed reviews from critics.
