Seminal alt-rock band Pixies have announced that they will be bringing their world tour to Australian shores in 2020. The Come On Pilgrim… It’s Surfer Rosa Tour will see the band celebrate their two debut releases, the 1987 EP Come On Pilgrim and their debut record, Surfer Rosa.
Surfer Rosa spawned a slew of the most beloved Pixies tracks to date, including ‘Bone Machine,’ ‘Gigantic’, ‘Vamos’ and the generation-defining anthem, ‘Where Is My Mind?’
The band will kick off their tour in Melbourne on March 10th, before heading to Brisbane on March 13th, Sydney on March 14th and capping things off in Fremantle on March 17th.
The Sydney leg of the tour will see the band play a very special set at the iconic Sydney Opera House Forecourt. Ticket information below.
Back in June, the Pixies announced the release of their first new record in three years. The band are set to drop Beneath The Eyrie on September 13th.
The band have documented the recording process of the new record in a podcast titled, It’s A Pixies Podcast. The twelve-part series features journalist Tony Fletcher as host, and explores the behind the scenes process with the band during the recording session of their new record. You can listen to it here.
