Exciting news on the Pixies front with a new album announced this week along with a track from the upcoming album. Read on to find complete details to get your Pixies fix.
About the Pixies
The Pixies are an American alternative rock band formed in 1986 in Boston, Massachusetts. The band currently consists of Black Francis (lead vocals and rhythm guitar), Joey Santiago (lead guitar), Paz Lenchantin (bass guitar and backing vocals) and David Lovering (drums).
The group released their debut album Come On Pilgrim in 1987 to a mixed critical reception. Following its release, the Pixies became underground sensations on college radio and generated significant interest with their debut album Surfer Rosa in 1988. The band’s popularity grew in the years that followed with their albums Doolittle (1989), Bossanova (1990) and Trompe le Monde (1991). They disbanded acrimoniously in 1993, with Francis going on to form the Breeders and Santiago forming the Pixies Three.
The Pixies reunited in 2004 and have since released two further albums: 2014’s Indie Cindy and 2019’s Beneath the Eyrie.
About the New Pixies Album Doggerel
The new album, is the Pixies first album since the 2019 Beneath the Eyrie and the third album since the band reunited in 2004. Expect the new album titled, Doggerel, to have a more mature sound and format than Beneath the Eyrie and the 2014 Indie Cindy. According to guitarist Joey Santiago:
“This time around we have grown, we no longer have under two-minute songs. We have little breaks, more conventional arrangements but still our twists in there.”
