Ahead of their eagerly-awaited return to Edinburgh next month, American alt-rock behemoths Pixies have shared their new single, Catfish Kate, along with its official animated video. You can watch it here.
The single is lifted from the US band’s upcoming new album, Beneath The Eyrie, and follows on from the single On Graveyard Hill.
Pixies’ new album – their first since 2016’s Head Carrier – is due to be released on September 13 on their new label, Infectious/BMG.
The 12-track album was recorded last December and has been described in a press release as a record “where tales of witches, Daniel Boone, misfits and other characters fit utterly into the band’s inherent weirdness.”
Next month, Pixies head out on an 11-date UK and Ireland tour in support of their new material. The stint begins in Cardiff on September 13, and band will visit the Usher Hall in Edinburgh on September 23.
Pixies’ UK and Ireland tour dates are:
September 13: Cardiff Motorpoint Arena
September 14: Plymouth Pavilions
September 16: Birmingham O2 Academy
September 17: Leeds O2 Academy
September 18: Manchester O2 Apollo
September 20: London Alexandra Palace
September 21: Newcastle O2 Academy
September 22: Glasgow O2 Academy
September 23: Edinburgh Usher Hall
