2nd July 2021 | Category: Concerts

Pixies have announced a short U.S. tour for this September.

The 11-date trek will launch September 10th at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York, and wrap September 26th at Cain’s Ballroom in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The run will also include sets at Summerfest in Milwaukee and Riot Fest in Chicago, as well as two shows opening for Nine Inch Nails at Jacobs Pavilion in Cleveland, Ohio, on September 21st and 23rd. Nine Inch Nails said upon the announcement of the two Cleveland shows that the gigs would be their only headline shows of 2021.

Per a press release, Pixies will fill their setlists with songs drawn from their entire catalog. Each show will feature a different setlist, which the band will settle on right before taking the stage.

“Over the past year, it’s been wonderful to spend so much time with our families,” guitarist Joey Santiago said in a statement. “I’ve been doing a lot of cycling and playing music, Paz has been working on art projects, music, film, and surfing, Charles has been raising chickens and doing a lot of painting, and Dave has been playing drums, doing magic, and investing time in metal detecting and mineral collecting. But we’re ready to get back to playing live shows, and are looking forward to seeing you all.”

Pixies are touring behind their 2019 album Beneath The Eyrie. This is their seventh album and it was produced by Tom Dalgety, and preceded by the singles “On Graveyard Hill” and “Catfish Kate”. The album was recorded in Dreamland Recording Studios, a remote, converted church in upstate New York. The band were influenced by their Gothic surroundings during the writing and recording process, with vocalist and guitarist Black Francis stating: “I wanted to intermingle with the spirit world, with life and death and with the mystical and a more surreal landscape.”
