Pixies Announce 2015 North American Tour Dates
Following a busy 2014 that saw the release of Indie Cindy – their first full-length album in more than two decades -- the Pixies have announced a new set of North American tour dates.
The alt-rock leaders will kick off the tour in New Orleans on May 5. From there, the band has dates scheduled through June, including stops at several summer festivals like Shaky Knees in Atlanta, Boston Calling and Amnesia Festival in Montebello, Canada. Check out the complete itinerary below; tickets go on sale this Friday, Feb. 27 on the Pixies’ website.
The Pixies’ 2015 tour will feature the band’s current lineup: frontman Black Francis, Joey Santiago, David Lovering and touring bassist Paz Lenchantin. Lenchantin replaced the Muff’s Kim Shattuck in early 2014, who in turn filled in following the departure of founding bassist Kim Deal.
With the announcement of new dates, the Pixies also revealed that they will premiere brand-new songs over the course of the tour. Hopefully this means we’ll get our hands on some new music from the Francis-led crew in the near future.
