PIGEON TOE, the German progressive rock band featuring TRIPTYKON drummer Norman Lonhard, has inked a deal with Lifeforce Records. The band’s debut album will be released later in the year.
Brothers Martin Fischer and Hans Fischer, who were previously in such bands as FEAR MY THOUGHTS, BACKSLIDE and MONGOUSE, got the idea to form a new project in 2008. After coming up with several rough song ideas, they asked their then-FEAR MY THOUGHTS bandmate Lonhard to sit behin the kit for the new group. A short time later, bassist Ben Krahl (FINAL KINGS) joined the fold, to be followed by Patrick Hagmann on third guitar and synths.
PIGEON TOE played several shows in 2010 and 2011 with such acts as KARNIVOOL and LONG DISTANCE CALLING, whom they supported on their “Into The Black Wide Open” tour through Germany and Switzerland.
PIGEON TOE is:
Martin Fischer (Marsn) – Guitar/Vocals
Hans Fischer (Hanson) – Guitar/Vocals
Norman Lonhard – Drums
Patrick Hagmann – Guitar/Synths
Ben Krahl – Bass
