The idea of founding a new project besides their bands FEAR MY THOUGHTS, BACKSLIDE and MONGOUSE, already existed in the minds of the two brothers Marsn and Hanson since 2008. After the split of MONGOUSE they put even more focus on it and chose “PIGEON TOE” as a working title. With some rough song ideas Fear My Thoughts bandmate Norman Lonhard (now TRIPTYKON) was asked to beat the skins and joined the band. Shortly after their well known fellow Ben Krahl (FINAL KINGS) at bass was in too. After FEAR MY THOUGHTS split up, Patrick Hagmann joined PIGEON TOE on 3rd Guitar and Synths.
After several shows in 2010 and 2011, amongst others with KARNIVOOL, PIGEON TOE supported LONG DISTANCE CALLING on their “Into The Black Wide Open – Tour” through Germany and Switzerland. During 2009 and 2010 PIGEON TOE had enough time to elaborate their songs which piled up and to form the shape and work out the concept for their debut album, which was released in April via Lifeforce Records.
