Hawk vs Pigeon is the latest buzz bomb from bass masher Rob Higgins and fellow co-vocalist Niva Chow who, together, form Dearly Beloved. The band have released Irish tour dates lined up throughout September, including Number 1’s, Mullingar on September 20.
Hawk vs Pigeon (Redux ) features completely new album artwork, an inspired and fresh re-sequencing of the album and a previously un-released bonus collaboration called Never Tell The Truth with Patrick Pentland of Sloan.
“Releasing this revamped version of Hawk vs Pigeon is like breathing a second life into the album,” says Chow. “I’m excited to rock this next phase of Dearly Beloved.”
Hawk vs Pigeon was recorded in Joshua Tree, California at Rancho De La Luna, and the band’s Phoebe Street Studios and features a veritable who’s who of outstanding guest musician appearances: Dave Catching of Eagles Of Death Metal /Earthlings?, Brendan Canning of Broken Social Scene, Mars Volta/M83 alumni Dave Elitch, Jeff Heisholt of The Trews, and Care Failure of Die Mannequin.
“I have always championed Dearly Beloved and I am huge fan of their live show,” says Pentland. “Their songs are the perfect blend of the excitement of punk rock, the sing-a-long-ability of pop with a dash of muso/prog rock noodleing, thanks in large part to Higgins’ amazing bass skills. High powered riffs and melody lines that make me jealous.”
