Pixies to play one-off London gig in July

Band will play gig at O2 Brixton Academy

Pixies will return to the UK for a one-off London gig later this year.

The band, who are currently working on new music, will play O2 Academy in Brixton on July 11. Tickets for Pixies’ London gig are on sale now.

Pixies will also play a European live date at Zitadelle in Berlin on July 17. They had previously been announced for Portugal’s NOS Alive, which is set to run between July 7-9 in Lisbon.


Last year saw Pixies perform a new song called ‘Um Chagga Lagga’ live. The song was debuted during a live show at New York’s Beacon Theatre in May.

Pixies have confirmed that they’re intending to follow up their returning 2014 ‘Indie Cindy’ LP. ‘Indie Cindy’ was the band’s first studio album since 1991, with drummer David Lovering and guitarist Joey Santiago since revealing that new material is in the works.

“We are working on new music,” Santiago told Billboard. “Sometimes we try [new songs] out live. It depends how we feel – and that’s how we do it always; the set list always depends on how we feel. These songs are a little more precious, a little more shy to come out live.”

Lovering added: “We don’t write anything down. Behind each of the songs, we’re trying to do something that we haven’t done since we were a baby band. We have the opportunity to do these songs and play them around clubs, so it’s a really great way to hone it on the road.”
