LOS ANGELES, CA - Monday, June 17, 2019 - Earlier this month, Pixies announced Beneath The Eyrie, the band's brand new studio album due out September 13 (Infectious/BMG). Today, Pixies release an audio/video trailer for "It's a Pixies Podcast," the 12-episode podcast that was recorded during the making of the album last December at Dreamland Recordings near Woodstock, NY. Produced by Pixies and hosted and narrated by New York Times best-selling author Tony Fletcher, "It's a Pixies Podcast" will give fans an up-close-and-personal perspective to the interaction between the band members and with the album's producer Tony Dalgety in the studio's control room, the main room and in a special "audio booth" where Black Francis, Joey Santiago, David Lovering and Paz Lenchantin offered their thoughts and observations. In addition, Fletcher spent many hours at the studio, soaking up the entire process and conducting interviews with all band members as well as with Dalgety. Check out the trailer HERE.
"It's A Pixies Podcast" will be available on all podcast platforms globally including Apple, Pandora, Acast, Stitcher, Google and more. The series debuts on Thursday, June 27 with a new episode available every Thursday leading up to the September 13 release of the album.
About the Pixies
While Pixies have been acclaimed as the most influential, pioneering band of the late 80s alt/rock movement, having blazed the trail for artists from Nirvana to Radiohead to Pearl Jam, today, a whole new generation of music fans is discovering the band's iconic “loudquietloud” signature sound. After five genre-defining studio albums -- including the now-Platinum-certified Doolittle — Pixies disbanded in 1993, and then launched their reunion tour in April 2004, playing to sell-out crowds across the globe for 15 years, a far longer period of time than they were a band originally. But writing, recording and releasing new music was something that the band had been wanting to do for a long time, so they secretly booked studio time in Wales for the fall of 2012. Six days into the recording, founding bassist Kim Deal decided to leave the band; Black Francis, Joey Santiago and David Lovering made the decision to carry on, finishing and releasing the band’s first studio album in more than two decades, 2014’s Indie Cindy. Also wanting to play live, the three began working with a number of touring bassists, including former A Perfect Circle bassist, Paz Lenchantin who came out on the road with the band in 2014. The band welcomed her as Pixies' permanent bassist in 2016.
Also in 2016, Pixies released its second post-reunion studio album, Head Carrier which was also Lenchantin’s recording debut with the band. As the UK’s DIY put it, “They’re back. They’re still brilliant. God save the Pixies.”
December 2018 saw the band holed up at Dreamland Studios near Woodstock, NY with producer Tom Dalgety where they recorded their second album as a unit, Beneath the Eyrie out on September 13, 2019.
