This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Pixies” target=”_blank”>Pixies‘ 1991 album Trompe le Monde, and it looks like the famed Massachusetts band will celebrating with new music — or at least some sort of activity.
At least that’s the assumption after viewing a new teaser trailer the Pixies posted to YouTube this morning. The clip is a 20-second quickie showing the band members in and around the recording studio as distortion fills the air, and it’s closed out with the promising message of “Pixies: Coming… 2016”.
Back in 2014, the band released a new album, Indie Cindy, which serves as a compilation of their post-reunion sounds, pulling together three EPs issued separately between 2012 and 2014.
Last year, guitarist Joey Santiago confirmed new Pixies music to Billboard. “Sometimes we try [new songs] out live,” he says via the NME. “It depends how we feel — and that’s how we do it always; the set list always depends on how we feel. These songs are a little more precious, a little more shy to come out live.” The band debuted a new song called “Um Chagga Lagga” at a May show in New York.
