Briefly Speaking...

PIXIES RELEASE NEW ALBUM, ‘BENEATH THE EYRIE’

Band currently on tour in Europe

It’s a deeply odd world that the 12 songs on Pixies’ Beneath The Eyrie (BMG/Infectious) creates, haunting and ominous, but so satisfying in such a weird and sinister way.  

Produced by Tom Dalgety (Ghost, Royal Blood) and recorded in December 2018 at Dreamland Studios near Woodstock, NY, the band – Black Francis/guitar, vocals, Joey Santiago/guitar, David Lovering/drums, and Paz Lenchantin/bass – has packed a multitude into these dozen tracks:  a carny sensibility, an audacious swagger, a harmony of legacy and rejuvenation, heartbreak and loss, devotion and resiliency. Beneath The Eyrie is ready and willing to pull you into its bizarre world of misfits and madness, witches and a hungry catfish.   Beneath The Eyrie is available in a wide variety of packages, and all formats can be purchased  HERE.

* Deluxe Box Set – features the full album in CD and clear vinyl formats, plus a second clear vinyl disc containing nine unreleased demos recorded over the past year* Standard heavyweight single gatefold black vinyl* Deluxe CD in a hard casebound book* Cassette* Digital download

* Standard 12-song CD (not available via pixiesmusic.com, but from various retailers such as Amazon)

* Standard heavyweight single gatefold colored vinyl (Indie Record Store exclusive)

You’ve heard “On Graveyard Hill” and “Catfish Kate,” today Pixies invite you to sample one more new song from Beneath The Eyrie“St. Nazaire,” a “balls-to-the-wall rocker that features a scorching vocal from Francis and searing guitar work from Santiago.” (Goldmine)
