(Monday, June 3, 2024) – Pixies return with the release of their first new music for 2024 with  a

brand new AA-side single, “You’re So Impatient”/”Que Sera, Sera.”  Listen HERE.

 

The new AA-side finds Pixies creating a macabre and cinematic picture of American pop culture.

Furious punk ditty “You’re So Impatient” is an explosive two minute, nine second Zombie attack a

the mall, before Pixies twist the classic 1950s standard “Que Sera, Sera” into a dark folk tale, told

anew through the lens of a sci-fi monster epic – originally recorded as the soundtrack for the

U.S. TV show “From.”  A limited edition 7-inch single including both tracks will be released on

July 19. 

Speaking about “You’re So Impatient,” vocalist/guitarist/songwriter Black Francis said, “’You’re So Impatient’ is a slightly comedic suburban culture moment:  there’s this guy, there’s this gal, there’s this tug-of-love dynamic going on.  But the backdrop is the mall.  And while the mall is crass, it’s also a very zombie, rock ‘n’ roll horror movie setting.”

 

Twenty-twenty-four is a momentous year for Pixies.  Thirty-five years since their groundbreaking, Platinum-certified album Doolittle catapulted the band into the UK Top Ten, was heralded as one of the top albums of the 1980s, and twenty years since the band’s celebrated reformation at Coachella, Pixies are deep into their second act.  Bigger than ever, playing to fans spanning multiple generations, and in the midst of a creative purple patch, with more new music soon to be announced.

 

Pixies’ new AA-side single arrives amidst a packed touring schedule set to take in circa seventy live shows across the world through 2024 – with even more dates to be announced for 2025.  They have just kicked off a North American tour with Modest Mouse and Cat Power, with a return to the UK in August for a run of already sold-out headline shows, as well as appearances at major festivals.

 

The shows will mark Pixies’ second visit to the UK this year following a sold-out run of gigs celebrating the Bossanova and Trompe Le Monde albums, which saw Pixies welcome new bassist Emma Richardson (Band of Skulls) to the line-up, the first British band member to join the alt-rock icons.  Looking ahead, Pixies will head to New Zealand and Australia in November for stadium gigs with Pearl Jam, closing what’s set to be a monumental year for one of the world’s most influential, revered and deeply anchored bands.  

 

Pixies’ North American tour dates are as follows:
