BIG BLACK (FRANCIS)!

And they'll be on heavyweight vinyl...

Pixies have announced they will reissue their first three albums on heavyweight vinyl.

1987’s ’Come On Pilgrim’, 1988’s ’Surfer Rosa’ and 1989’s ’Doolittle’ will all be re-released on 180-gram vinyl after years of being out of production.

All the albums will come backed with the original artwork, with the exception of ‘Doolittle’ which will feature an insert featuring the lyrics.

The news follows a highly-successful year for the seminal band who’s reformation tour has prompted much speculation about the possibility of an all-new album.

A brand new song, ’Bam Thwok’, appeared on iTunes earlier in the year.
