The reunited rockers released their fifth studio last month, just prior to Record Store Day. Produced by longtime Pixies collaborator Gil Norton, the album is a combination of the band's 2012-2014 extended play releases, "EP1," "EP2" and "EP3."
Co-founding member Kim Deal left the band last June shortly after entering the studio to being the album. The bassist was replaced initially by Muffs guitarist and vocalist Kim Shattuck. Paz Lenchantin has since been announced as the new bassist for the 2014 tour.
The Pixies will perform a 4-night stand May 23-26 in Sydney, Australia as part of Vivid Live. A run of European and Asian festival dates will following, beginning May 30 in Barcelona, Spain at Parc del Forum as part of Primavera Sound and wrapping up Aug. 17 in Tokoyo, Japan at Chiba Marine Stadium as part of Summer Sonic.
