Influential alt rock icons the Pixies announced a new tour on Tuesday, that will take them across the US this spring in support of their 2016 release “Head Carrier.” Formed in Boston in 1986, the Pixies achieved modest commercial success during their initial run, however their influence is still felt today. Legendary bands such as Nirvana, Radiohead, and Weezer all list the Pixies amongst their biggest influences.

Their unique blend of garage rock, surf pop, and whatever else they came up with birthed an entire generation of noisey, alternative bands that would eventually turn the 1990’s into the golden era of alternative rock. The group initially split in 1993, but reformed over a decade later in 2004 for live performances. Founding bassist Kim Deal left the band in 2013, and was replaced by Kim Shattuck who would go on to record with the band for their first record in 23 years, 2014’s “Indie Cindy.” Shattuck too would end up leaving the band, leaving an opening eventually filled by current bassist Paz Lenchantin.

The 2017 tour will be highlighted by a three night stand in the band’s native Boston, which is capped off by an intimate show in the city’s 900 capacity Paradise Rock Club – a venue the band has played several times in the past. For the full list of dates see below.
