About: While Pixies have been acclaimed as the most influential, pioneering band of the late 80s alt/rock movement, having blazed the trail for artists from Nirvana to Radiohead to Pearl Jam, today, a whole new generation of music fans are discovering their iconic “loudquietloud” signature sound. After five genre-defining studio albums, Pixies disbanded in 1993, and then launched their reunion tour in April 2004, playing to sell-out crowds all over the globe for seven years, a longer period of time than they were a band originally. But writing, recording and releasing new music was something that the band had been wanting to do for a long time, so they secretly booked studio time in Wales for the fall of 2012. Six days into the recording, founding bassist Kim Deal decided to leave the band; Black Francis, Joey Santiago and David Lovering made the decision to carry on, working with a variety of touring bassists, something they’d never done.

It’s been about a year and a half since the band surprised everyone with “Bagboy” (June 28, 2013) and then, 10 months after, with Indie Cindy (April 29, 2014), their first new album in more than twenty years. Over that time period, the band also released three EPs, as well as 10 music videos, racking up nearly 5-million views. Since they kicked off their 2013 – 2015 global tour in September, 2013, the band has played 120 shows across four continents, and still have lots of touring ahead of them.

As the UK’s DIY wrote about the new music, “They’re back. They’re still brilliant. God save the Pixies.”
