Pixies debut two new songs at surprise LA gig - watch

Band unveil new tunes 'Blue Eyed Hexe' and 'Green And Blues' - plus new bass player Kim Shattuck

Pixies debuted two new songs called 'Blue Eyed Hexe' and 'Greens And Blues' during a surprise performance in Los Angeles yesterday (September 6). Watch fan-shot footage above.

The band are due to begin their world tour at LA's El Rey Theatre on Monday (September 9) but took to the stage last night at another venue in the city, The Echo, for a secret warm-up show. The last-minute gig was Pixies' first live performance since November 2011 and their first outing with new member Kim Shattuck, who replaced original bassist Kim Deal after she left the band in June of this year (2013).

The band played a career-spanning set, Consequence of Sound reports, including the first live rendition of 'What Goes Boom', a track from the band's new mini-album 'EP1', which was released earlier this week (September 3).

Meanwhile, Pixies have recently announced plans to play an intimate gig in London later this month. The band will play the 1,500-capacity Brixton Electric on September 27 - two days after they headline one night of this year's iTunes Festival at London's Roundhouse on September 25.

After playing a series of dates across Europe, the band will return in November for a five-date UK and Ireland tour featuring gigs in Dublin, Manchester, Glasgow and two in London.

The dates are as follows:

Camden Roundhouse (September 25)
Brixton Electric (27)
Dublin Olympia (November 18)
Manchester Apollo (21)
Glasgow Barrowland (22)
London Hammersmith Apollo (24, 25)
