New Pixies is on the horizon. The legendary alt-outfit, having released their first album in over twenty years in 2014 (Indie Cindy) have announced the release of a new full-length for September 30th. Head Carrier will be the second album penned since the band reformed in 2004, and comes with new bassist Paz Lenchantin in tow, after Kim Deal’s departure in 2013.
Lenchantin has said “I was very nervous in the beginning when I went to that first rehearsal,” said Lenchantin. “There were these shoes I felt I had to fill and I tried to do the best I could for the fans, to make the live performances sound true to the originals.
“I spent three years learning to understand what being a Pixie meant, and now, my heart, spirit, and love for their music is embedded in me and I feel like I have become a Pixie. We had been more about the history of the Pixies, but now, we are about going forward.”
Listen to ‘Um Chagga Lagga’, the first single to be taken from the forthcoming album.
