The Pixies are heading out on tour this May.
The band took to their website to announce they’re hitting the road on May 5, kicking things off in New Orleans before making stops in Charlotte, NC, Boston for the Boston Calling Festival and Brooklyn to play the newly restored Kings Theatre.
The trio will once again bring along bassist Paz Lenchantin, who has been touring with the band since Jan. 2014, and promise they’ll be playing brand new music that’s been written and arranged in the last few months.
“All headline shows will feature a new and more varied set packed with songs from the entire Pixies catalogue, full of distortion howls and all the vivid dissonance a Pixies fan would expect. – all performed on a sparse yet stunning stage,” the band write on their website.
Tickets go on pre-sale this Wednesday, Feb. 25 for fans on the band’s website. With general tickets going on sale Friday, Feb 27.
