Pixies have released a brand new EP and video today (September 3).
The four-track EP, titled EP-1, was recorded at Rockfield Studios in Wales and was produced by Gil Norton, who also helmed previous Pixies releases Dolittle (1989), Bossanova (1990) and Trompe Le Monde (1991). Also released today is the first video from the EP, for the track “Indie Cindy”, which you can watch below.
The trackslisting for ‘EP-1’ is as follows:
‘Another Toe In The Ocean’
‘What Goes Boom’
Last month (August 16), Frank Black teased the new material by posting a Vine which appeared to show him singing along to a new song. The clip followed the release of their comeback single ‘Bagboy’ in June.
Pixies recently announced four UK and Ireland dates this November (2013) as part of the first leg of a “massive world tour”. They’ll be joined on the tour by new bassist Kim Shattuck, who previously played with The Muffs and The Pandoras. Original bass player Kim Deal confirmed she was leaving the band in June.
The new Pixies line-up will play Dublin’s Olympia on November 18, before crossing the Irish Sea for gigs at Manchester Apollo on November 21, Glasgow’s Barrowland on November 22 and London’s Hammersmith Apollo on November 24 and 25.
Pixies will play:
Dublin Olympia (November 18)
