Pixies have announced four UK and Ireland dates this November (2013) as part of the first leg of a "massive world tour".

They'll be joined on the tour by new bassist Kim Shattuck, who's previously played with The Muffs and The Pandoras. Original bass player Kim Deal confirmed she was leaving the band earlier this month (June).

The new Pixies line-up will play Dublin's Olympia on November 18, before crossing the Irish Sea for gigs at Manchester Apollo on November 21, Glasgow's Barrowland on November 22 and London's Hammersmith Apollo on November 24.

So far, the band have scheduled a total of 17 European dates, beginning in Paris on September 29. An announcement on Pixies' website teases that the tour "will give them an opportunity to do something they haven't been able to do in two decades: premiere brand new Pixies songs, the first collection of new material since 1991's 'Trompe le Monde'".

On Friday (June 28), Pixies unveiled 'Bagboy' - their first new song in nine years and first slice of new material since Deal announced her departure. You can listen to it at the bottom of this article.

"Along with everyone's favourites, we'll be playing songs that we haven't played in ages or never played live before," frontman Black Francis said on the band's website. "Songs like 'Brick Is Red,' 'Havalina,' 'Tony's Theme' and 'The Sad Punk.' We've probably rehearsed some 80 songs, so we'll be able to change up the set at the last minute if we feel like it. We're all really looking forward to this tour."

Pixies will play:

Dublin Olympia (November 18)
Manchester Apollo (21)
Glasgow Barrowland (22)
London Hammersmith Apollo (24)
