Alt rockers Pixies have hinted to fans that the band will release new music in 2016. A snippet of one of the new tracks is previewed in a teaser video just released.
The band had previously indicated that it was intending to follow up it’s 2014 release Indie Cindy—the band’s first studio album release since 1991’s Trompe le Monde.
To reinforce the hint of new music, the Pixies shared a video featuring 20 seconds of distortion and the caption “Pixies coming… 2016”.
Pixies guitarist Joey Santiago told Billboard, “We are working on new music, sometimes we try [new songs] out live. It depends how we feel – and that’s how we do it always; the set list always depends on how we feel. These songs are a little more precious, a little more shy to come out live.”
The band’s drummer Dave Lovering added: “We don’t write anything down. Behind each of the songs, we’re trying to do something that we haven’t done since we were a baby band. We have the opportunity to do these songs and play them around clubs, so it’s a really great way to hone it on the road.”
The UK will be a pit stop for Pixies later this year, with a one-off London gig at the O2 Academy in Brixton on July 11th. Tickets for the London gig are on sale now.
The band will also play Zitadelle Spandau in Berlin on July 17th, plus Portugal’s NOS Alive, which is set to run between July 7-9 in Lisbon.
