Pixies announced a North American tour Monday morning, along with the hushed release of a new video from the upcoming “EP-1.” The tour stops in 33 U.S. cities — including two Colorado shows — with support from Best Coast, Cults and FIDLAR.
After a long stint in Europe, the band will kick off its U.S. run in January. The new lineup of the Pixies, including Kim Shattuck from the Muffs to replace the original bassist Kim Deal, will stay on the road until March.
The Pixies debuted a new Ondi Timoner-produced video off the upcoming “EP-1,” “Andro Queen,” where the band stays true to its hollow lyrics and melodic chords, but adds a new-model sound that is tender and restrained. The video captures live footage of past shows with the band members in animal costumes, jabbing at the symbolism of touring and performance. This is the third video from the four-song EP, and the first material released by the band since 2002.
The Pixies and Best Coast will perform at the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver on Feb. 13 and then head to the Belly Up Tavern in Aspen on Feb. 14.
Tickets go on sale Oct. 11 at 10 a.m. and are available at livenation.com.
