Pixies Return with New Single and Packed Tour Schedule, Welcoming New Bassist Emma Richardson

The Pixies have kicked off 2024 with a fresh release, unveiling a new AA-side single, “You’re So Impatient”/”Que Sera, Sera.” This release captures the band’s signature style, blending macabre themes with cinematic storytelling. “You’re So Impatient” is a high-energy, punk-infused track that depicts a zombie attack at a mall, while “Que Sera, Sera” reimagines the classic 1950s song as a dark folk tale with a sci-fi twist. Both tracks will be available on a limited edition 7-inch single set to be released on July 19.

Black Francis, the band’s vocalist and guitarist, describes “You’re So Impatient” as a comedic take on suburban culture, set against the crass yet horror-movie-like backdrop of a mall. This release marks a significant year for the Pixies, commemorating 35 years since their iconic album “Doolittle” hit the UK Top Ten and 20 years since their notable reunion at Coachella. The band continues to thrive, appealing to fans across multiple generations and promising more new music in the near future.

The new single comes amid an extensive tour schedule that will see the Pixies perform approximately 70 live shows around the world throughout 2024. They have recently started a North American tour with Modest Mouse and Cat Power, and they will return to the UK in August for a series of sold-out headline shows and festival appearances. This year also marks the addition of Emma Richardson from Band of Skulls as the new bassist, making her the first British member of the Pixies.

Looking ahead, the Pixies plan to take their tour to New Zealand and Australia in November for stadium gigs with Pearl Jam, capping off what is set to be a monumental year for the band. With their continued creative output and dynamic live performances, the Pixies remain one of the most influential and revered bands in the alt-rock genre.
