Head Carrier is the new album from Pixies – one of most legendary American alt-rock bands of our time – a highly influential group known for pioneering the “loud quiet loud” sound.

The 12-track collection encompasses the band’s unique aural mix of surrealism, psychedelia, dissonance and surf rock was produced by Tom Dalgety (Killing Joke, Royal Blood) and recorded at London's Rak Studios from mid-February through to mid-March this year.

For the first time since their very early days, the Pixies spent a total of six weeks in pre-production, writing, arranging and rehearsing a plethora of songs. Between the band's late-80s/early 90s touring schedule and delivering an album once a year, there simply wasn't time for more than a day or so of fleshing out their music before recording started.

Head Carrier is their second album since their reunion in 2014.

Pixies have multiple gold and platinum accredited records to their name – in particular, they’ve been hailed for iconic albums such as Doolittle (1989) and Bossanova (1990) plus mammoth hits such as ‘Where Is My Mind?’ and ‘Here Comes Your Man’.

Both the album announcement and the tour announcement received huge media coverage in NZ, including, Undertheradar, & support from Radio Hauraki and the bNets

Bands such as Nirvana, Radiohead, The Strokes, Blur and Weezer count Pixies amongst some of their biggest influences.
