New Pixies album in the work?
NME has a great history of creating rumors of bands long gone, ranging from the Smiths and Stone Roses reuniting, and now it appears that the Pixies are planning a new album. Now even though the article cite Black Francis, I still can't believe the circumstances of the situation. Apparently Francis want to work with a Hollywood director, like Quentin Tarantino, but he did not rule out the possibilty of a standard album. I really can't believe the news that the band behind some of the best alternative rock albums of the 80s and 90s, and part of one of the ugliest break-ups in rock history (Black Francis sent out a fax to the members), would be up for a new album. Well, if this is very true, then this would be one of the most awesome music stories of the year making everything else look pointless. It's the Pixies, show some respect noob.
