Pixies announce new release

Are the band about to release their first new album in 18 years?

Pixies have announced a new release, entitled ‘Minotaur’.

According to Ainr.com (Artist In Residence), a release called ‘Minotaur’ by the band is available to pre-order on June 15.

It is currently unclear whether the release is an album of new material or not, although a post on the Ainr.com messageboard by a forum administrator says that ‘Minotaur’ is a new Pixies album, produced by Steve Albini.

Artist In Residence is a design collective who have previously released deluxe package versions of material by Nine Inch Nails and Beck.

Pixies‘ last new album – ‘Trompe Le Monde’ – was released in 1991. The reunited band are touring throughout 2009, including an appearance at the Isle Of Wight festival in June.
