PIXIES TO MAKE FIRST ALBUM IN 14 YEARS
Reformed alt-rock legends PIXIES are planning to record their first album in 14 years.
The band's frontman Black Francis has confirmed the band, who got back together last
year to huge acclaim, are preparing to make their first studio album since 1991's 'Trompe
He told contactmusic: "It's all hugs and kisses, I'm pleased to report.
"We have been discussing recording a new album lately. As happy as we are with the
success of the reunion tour, we really want to make a record for the right reasons, whether
it is successful commercially or not."
He added: "We would be satisfied if it played like our other records, never chart-topping
but always in print."
Since the band got back together they have recorded two songs - 'Bam Thwok' - which
was rejected for the 'Shrek 2' soundtrack and then released as a download-only single,
and a cover of Warren Zevon's 'Ain't That Pretty At All', which appeared on 'Enjoy Every
Sandwich', a tribute album to the late singer.
Pixies headline this year's Carling Weekend: Reading and Leeds Festivals between August
27 and 29.
Black Francis releases a new solo album under the name Frank Black next week (July 18).
'Honeycomb' is the first record he's done alone since 1996's 'The Cult Of Ray'.
