LOS ANGELES, CA (Wednesday, March 25, 2015) — As part of the final leg of their 2013-2015 global tour, Pixies will join Robert Plant for a handful of shows, and the band – all big Robert Plant (and Zeppelin) fans – jumped at the chance when the offer was made.
Prior to joining up with Plant, Pixies will perform a series of major festivals as well as headline shows at intimate theatres in many cities not played on this two-year trek. The tour will also set the stage for the debut of some brand-new Pixies songs, written and arranged just in the past few months. Pixies’ first new studio album in more than two decades, Indie Cindy [PIAS], was released April 29, 2014.
For all of these dates, Pixies – Black Francis, Joey Santiago and David Lovering – will once again be joined by touring bassist Paz Lenchantin, who has been playing with the band since January, 2014. All shows will feature a new and more varied set packed with songs from the entire Pixies catalogue, full of distortion howls and all the vivid dissonance a Pixies fan would expect.
