Watch new Pixies video ‘Um Chagga Lagga’

Boston band are due to tour the UK later this year

Pixies have posted a new video for their song ‘Um Chagga Lagga’ online.

The track features on the band’s latest album ‘Head Carrier’ which was released last Friday (September 30). It follows on from the band’s 2014 comeback LP ‘Indie Cindy’. 

The clip features black and white shots of the band performing the track, cut with colour footage of a woman standing on the side of an empty highway. Watch it below.


‘Head Carrier’ was recorded with Royal Blood producer Tom Dalgety. Frontman Black Francis recently compared the album to 1989’s ‘Doolittle’, saying: “It’s got a bit of early Pixies slosh in it.”

Pixies also recently confirmed that their guitarist Joey Santiago has entered rehab. He checked in to a rehabilitation centre “for at least 30 days to treat his alcohol and drug issues”, according to a statement.

“This is the best thing that Joey could have done, and we’re very proud that he’s taken this step,” said drummer David Lovering in the statement. “We ask all of our fans to support Joey while he’s on this road to recovery.”

The statement continues that “while the Pixies fully intend to tour the UK and Europe this November and December, Santiago’s time in rehab will affect some of the band’s planned promotional activities to support their new album”.

Pixies will play the following UK live dates:


Brixton O2 Academy (November 28-29, December 6)
Leeds O2 Academy (30)
Glasgow Barrowland (December 2)
Newcastle O2 Academy (3)
Manchester O2 Apollo (4)
