LOS ANGELES, CA - Friday, September 13, 2019 - It's a deeply odd world that the 12 songs on Pixies' Beneath The Eyrie (BMG/Infectious) creates, haunting and ominous, but so satisfying in such a weird and sinister way. Produced by Tom Dalgety (Ghost, Royal Blood) and recorded in December 2018 at Dreamland Studios near Woodstock, NY, the band - Black Francis/guitar, vocals, Joey Santiago/guitar, David Lovering/drums, and Paz Lenchantin/bass - has packed a multitude into these dozen tracks: a carny sensibility, an audacious swagger, a harmony of legacy and rejuvenation, heartbreak and loss, devotion and resiliency. In stores and digitally available today, Beneath The Eyrie is ready and willing to pull you into its bizarre world of misfits and madness, witches and a hungry catfish.
Beneath The Eyrie is available in a wide variety of packages, and all formats can be purchased HERE.

You've heard "On Graveyard Hill" and "Catfish Kate," today Pixies invite you to sample one more new song from Beneath The Eyrie, "St. Nazaire," a "balls-to-the-wall rocker that features a scorching vocal from Francis and searing guitar work from Santiago." (Goldmine)
Following last week's promo trip to the U.S. east coast where the band sat down with MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Rolling Stone, ABC News, World Cafe, iHeart and SiriusXM, and performed the album's single "Catfish Kate" on "Late Show with Stephen Colbert," Pixies kicked off Leg One of its 2019-2020 global tour last night in the UK.
