Renowned Baltimore funk quartet, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, is thrilled to announce their forthcoming seventh studio album, Day in Time, set to debut on April 26, 2024. To celebrate the announcement, the band is releasing the album's title track today along with a vinyl and merch pre-order.

The highly anticipated single, "Day In Time," is a sonic journey encapsulating the band's signature psychedelic funk sound. The track is driven by propulsive guitars, an uplifting groove, and commanding vocals, with a half-time funk drop providing a dynamic contrast. The song features special guest Ben "Smiley" Silverstein (Smile High; The Main Squeeze), who weaves in his silky keyboard lines before launching into a soaring solo, culminating in an epic climax.

Pigeons Playing Ping Pong has built a reputation for electrifying live performances that captivate audiences from coast to coast. Comprised of "Scrambled Greg" Ormont [vocals, guitar], Jeremy Schon [guitar, vocals], Ben [bass, vocals], and Alex "Gator" Petropulos [drums, vocals], the band’s newest offering follows the release of album single “Alright Tonight,” released in fall 2023. The fresh material suggests the band continues to sharpen their impressive prowess in the studio, harnessing their hypnotic blend of funk, rock, and psychedelic groove.

"This album represents our most cohesive collection of songs to date," explains Jeremy Schon. "All of the tracks on 'Day In Time' truly represent our current writing style and where we are as a band today."

Reflecting on the new album's title, Greg shares, "What is an album if not a 'day in time'? This record is a snapshot of our band at this exact moment. It's a reminder that life moves fast, so we better make each second count."

The band, seasoned road warriors who have completed countless sold-out tours, will kick off their ‘Day In Time’ Winter Tour this weekend. The tour includes eleven shows down the east coast, including notable performances at Port Chester, NY’s Capitol Theatre (February 3), and two nights at Atlanta’s Variety Playhouse (February 23 + 24). Later this year, the band will headline Yuba, WI’s Bonfire Music Festival (June 6-8), Swanzey, NH’s Northlands Music and Arts Festival (June 14-15), and appear at Las Vegas, NV’s Bender Jamboree.

With "Day In Time," Pigeons Playing Ping Pong continues to capture lightning in a bottle, embracing their evolution as a band while staying true to their wild roots. For more information on Pigeons Playing Ping Pong and their upcoming album, please visit their official website here.
