The Pixies Use Tiger Blood In Their New Video “Andro Queen”
Critical faves the Pixies have a new video for “Andro Queen”, directed by Ondi Timoner, the documentarian who brought us the film Dig!
“Andro Queen” is a song featured on their recent release EP-1, and shows a lot of tiger costumes and forest shenanigans. Noticeably absent from the video is Kim Deal, who left the band earlier this year.
Following some small club shows and two London dates in the last month, the Pixies have announced a 33-date US and Canada tour. The tour dates can be seen in full below with Fidlar (January 15 – 29), Cults (January 31 – February 11) and Best Coast (February 13 – March 1) opening for the band.
After parting ways with Deal, they enlisted Kim Shattuck, who has previously played with The Muffs and The Pandoras. Deal apparently let the band know she was leaving during the recording of the new EP in Wales.
Pixies played their first UK gig with Shattuck at Camden’s Roundhouse last month (September 25) as part of the iTunes Festival. The band played a 28-song set which included songs from their new EP as well as classics such as ‘Wave Of Mutilation’ and ‘Monkey Gone To Heaven’.
The band are set to play larger UK and Irish shows this November. The Pixies’ North American tour dates are listed after a smattering of their recent and classic videos here. Rock on.
