A few weeks ago, Baltimore-based funk outfit Pigeons Playing Ping Pong reached out to the infamous Martin Shkreli with a one-of-a-kind offer. With a new album, Pleasure, due out on April 1st, the band pitched Shkreli the exclusive listening rights to their album for a sum of $2.5 million.
Against all odds, Shkreli actually responded today, saying he listened to Pleasure and found the funk too irresistible to keep to himself.
Or… maybe the band made this graphic themselves… but the one thing we know for certain is that Pleasure is one wild and funky ride. That’s why we teamed up with Pigeons to share the second single from Pleasure! Give “Burning Up My Time” a listen below:
Pigeons Playing Ping Pong resume their touring tonight, March 3rd, performing with The Main Squeeze at the Georgie Theatre in Athens, GA. After making a stop at AURA Music Festival this weekend, Pigeons will kick off their Pleasure tour on the 16th. The 25+ date run includes stops with Dopapod, Aqueous, The Magic Beans and more, and the new album is out on April 1st!
Check out the full schedule below, and head to the band’s website for further details and to access the album pre-sale.
