Head Carrier  Out 30 September Via Pixiesmusic/Play It Again Sam.

Two years after the relase of their under rated fifth album Indie Cindy, Pixies have announced the release of their sixth album Head Carrier. To celebrate they’ve shared the first single from the record, the surf rock tinged ‘Um Chagga Lagga’. A playful track, it calls to mind some of the more frenetic and off beat songs from Pixies’ extensive catalogue. The album was recorded in a swift six week period in London at RAK with Tom Dalgerty. Listen to the new track above, check out the Vaughen Oliver created artwork below, and check out some Euro dates for later in the year.
