by Categorized: Uncategorized Date:

Pixies have announced a 33 date North American tour that includes a stop at the Shubert Theater in New Haven.

The Northampton-based group is in the midst of a European tour, their first with Kim Shattuck taking over for original member Kim Deal on the bass. The North American tour picks up in the new year, with the Shubert Theater show on Jan. 22.

Tickets for the New Haven show go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster. Prices are $55 for seats, or $65 for general admission. Fidlar provides opening support in New Haven, though other dates on tour also have Cults and Best Coast opening.

Frank Black and company also took this opportunity to release a video for Andro Queen, the lead track of the new EP1 release. The video is a substance-induced jaunt across the Golden Gate to a forest full of musical tigers. Black takes to his singing voice on this track, which is more low key than the angular melodies and screeches of the average Pixies song.
