Pixies have put 20 seconds of distortion on the internet.
But it could well be an album trailer. The cryptic-ish short film features a slideshow of in-the-studio stills, rounded off with the dramatic words: “Pixies: COMING… 2016,” hinting that a new LP might be in the works for this year.
Since reforming in 2004, the band have released a series of EPs featuring new tracks and amalgamated these into the Indie Cindy album in 2014, their first full-length since 1991’s Trompe le Monde.
The band are set to tour Europe later this summer, kicking off with a performance at the Portugese branch of Primavera, Nos on July 7, and taking in number of UK & Ire dates, including two sold-out shows at London’s O2 Academy Brixton (July 11) and Dublin’s Iveagh Gardens (July 14) and Live at the Marquee in Cork on July 13.
