It’s not every day that your favorite band reunites. The Pixies broke up ten years ago, but after gaining new fans for years they finally decided to do a reunion tour and possibly cut a new freaking album.
In April, the legendary Pixies will reunite for the first time in over a decade. The notoriously quarrelsome quartet have buried the hatchet, clearing the way for all four original members to hop onstage together for a world tour, according to a spokesperson for the band.
If all goes as planned, the triumphant return of one of the most influential rock bands of the late ’80s might also be followed by a new studio album, the source said. The band has not yet gotten together to begin rehearsing for the tour, but, given their ugly breakup in 1993, the announcement is one of the most unlikely and anticipated reunions in the history of indie rock.
It’s happening. In April. No dates yet, not even any quotes from the group’s principals– just a band spokesperson’s promise to MTV, who broke the story. The source, who remains unnamed in MTV’s story, also claims that if all goes well a studio album will follow.
The Pixies. Are back. Together. Music is saved. Lovers of rock, unite and cheer. This is going to truly own.
And here I was getting excited over Frank Black’s new album with the Catholics. I can’t wait. A thousand thanks to mike for sending this in.
