Pixies Tease New Music
Mon, 08 Feb 2016 13:34:04
It looks like Pixies will be releasing new music in 2016. The band released a teaser full of pictures of the current foursome in the studio, followed by a message stating, "Pixies Coming… 2016." We assume that this means a new studio album, but nothing has been confirmed as of yet.
Since the band's 2002 reunion, Pixies have released four EPs and one full-length studio album, Indie Cindy. The three most recent EPs and the aforementioned LP have all been released since Kim Deal's June 2013 departure. This upcoming set of new music will be the foursome's first release since Indie Cindy, which was the band's first album since 1991's stellar Trompe le Monde.
The band is currently scheduled to play a variety of festival gigs during the month of July. The miniature tour will take them across Europe, and feature the foursome at Lisbon's NOS Alive festival, Luxembourg's Rock-A-Field, and BBK Live in Bilbao, Spain. The concert series also features a variety of solo/headlining concerts, with shows scheduled for London, Berlin, Dublin, and other cities.
No new music was presented in the teaser, but it's just exciting to hear that the band is putting something new together. There has been no mention of a release date at this point.
