The band extend their comeback...

Pixies have added yet more dates to their headlining North American tour.

Despite being more than two months before the jaunt is due to kick off, many of the concerts have already sold out. More dates are expected to be added in the coming weeks.

As previously reported on NME.COM, Pixies have written and recorded their first new song for 13 years, and have released it through the Internet.


‘Bam Thwok’ went on-sale for 99 cents on June 15 exclusively on Apple’s iTunes Music Store.

Written by bassist Kim Deal, the track was produced and recorded by the band at Stagg Street Studios, Los Angeles, in March.

Pixies are currently touring Europe, and return to the UK for the T In The Park festival on July 11 and the V Festival over the weekend of August 21/22.

The band recently played a rapturously-received four-night sold-out stint at London’s Brixton Academy (June 2-5).

The band also produced live CDs – a limited edition recording of each show, with all 16,000 copies selling out.
