The Pixies will return to Australia for their first dates since 2010 in March 2017.

This tour for The Pixies is around the release of the new album ‘Head Carrier’.

The line-up for The Pixies 2016 is vocalist/guitarist Black Francis, drummer David Lovering and guitarist Joey Santiago and bassist Paz Lenchatin now a permanent member of the line-up.

“Paz is a joy to be around,” said Lovering. “She’s very funny, and we’re having more fun than we’ve ever had as a band, we all have a blast together, on and off stage.”
