Sunlight Fading Away: Pigeon Park Q&A and Contest!

Vancouver-based band Pigeon Park have been around a while (formed in 2008) and they've been working hard. Hard at the music, hard at the relationships and hard at keeping things fresh. They're described as having "impeccable musicianship, high energy live shows and uniquely powerful sound; a seamless blend of classic and modern rock that's constantly evolved over time." They've been out on tour with Aerosmith, Slash, Sam Roberts, Big Wreck, Scott Weiland, The Offspring and Collective Soul. That's quite a list!

They're getting ready to head out on tour supporting Diemonds. Starting in London and working their way through Ontario, and then back home to BC. We're pretty sure they'll be spending each night trying to top the night before.

Q. Your Facebook page talks about a "fresh start", what differences will fans notice with the latest release?

A. : I think you can hear a change in attitude with "Sunlight Fading Away." The song has a serious and a light hearted vibe to it. It's a little quirkier than what we have put out in the past.

Q. Sunlight Fading Away was released on August 5th, 2016, can you walk us through the writing and recording process?

A. Sunlight was written by our guitarist/vocalist, Logan. It was brought in to rehearsal and from there we all put our individual spin on it. We felt really confident in the track so we decided to make it our next single. The recording process was great. Our producer for the track was Jordan Orebeek. Jordan, is a long time friend of ours who's worked with us in the past so it was a great experience. It was also Spencer's (our new drummer) first project with us so it held a little more meaning than normal.

Q. How has the album been received?

A. It's been great! We've seen some exciting radio attention across Canada and our fan base is really on board with the song as well.

Q. The band is pretty active on social media, and I have to say, you've got some great photos on social. Can you tell us a bit about how the band approaches social media?

A. Well we try and split up the tasks a little bit between the 5 of us. It's a lot more work than people think. I just try and have fun with it as much as I can. We never take ourselves too seriously when it comes to that stuff. I think is evident on our social accounts, haha!

Q. How did you end up touring with Diemonds?

A. We work with an agent from Feldman who books all of our shows and we managed to sync up with Diemonds as they were releasing new music as well! It's good timing! We are all excited to start playing some shows.

Q. The tour kicks off November 30th in London and ends in Victoria on the December 18th. Will you be heading back out at any point to tour the Eastern provinces?

A. We are always looking to play shows and we'd love to get out to more eastern provinces as soon as we can. Everything just has to fall into place!

Q. What are three things you can't live without on the road?

A. Nintendo 64/Super Smash Brothers. Music. Clean underwear.

Q. What are you listening to?

A. Personally, I listen to a lot of hip hop, which is definitely different than our stuff, haha! I listen to a lot of Queens of the Stone Age, Alexisonfire and listening to some older stuff like Zeppelin and Aerosmith!

Q. Last question, tell us something about the band that we couldn't find with a google search.

A. We have really intense Nintendo 64 battles on the road! We go all out and carry it in a briefcase to bring it into the hotel.
