180g Vinyl Double LP! First Studio Album Since 1991's Trompe Le Monde! Produced By Gil Norton!
2014 is the year that PIXIES indelibly stamp their musical footprint on rock history. The Alternative Rock legends release their first studio album since 1991s Trompe Le Monde. Needless to say, with two million catalogue album sales to their credit, and the recent press announcement for the album Indie Cindy creating huge waves of anticipation, a lot of people are very, very excited.
Since the band reformed to play live shows in 2004, their legacy has grown stronger and deeper with each passing year. Theyve sold out shows and festivals around the globe, attracted a whole new generation of young converts, energized their supporters at press and radio, and delighted a ravenous fan-base drunk on their classic catalogue but hungry for new music.
Indie Cindy arrives in the wake of three highly acclaimed EPs, a massively successful US tour, multiple radio sessions and an avalanche of press acclaim. Its the sound of a band firing on all cylinders, eager to pick up where they left off and they do not disappoint. Featuring the classic Pixies recipe of softer/louder dynamics, surf twang and rock crunch, Black Francis darkly comical lyrics, and an array of instant classics like the singles Bagboy, Blue Eyed Hexe and Greens and Blues, these 12 tracks are destined to win over die-hard fans and newcomers alike.
"We started seriously talking about recording new music about four years ago," drummer David Lovering said in a statement. "New music seemed like something we just had to do; we just couldn't continue to go out and tour without anything new. So the talk evolved into writing and recording, and we're all very happy with the way everything worked out."
"The album finds the band as a trio (Lovering, frontman Black Francis and guitarist Joey Santiago), following the June 2013 departure of longtime bassist Kim Deal (and the subsequent revolving door of replacements, including the now-departed Kim Shattuck). Norton reunites with the band after producing 1989's Doolittle, 1990's Bossanova and 1991's Trompe le Monde.
"The album recorded in October 2012 at Rockfield Studios in Wales includes the band's unexpected recent track "Bagboy," along with the entirety of their previous three EPs (September 2013's EP-1, January's EP-2 and the recently released EP-3)." - rollingstone.com
