Listing Detail Tabs

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 stuff.co.nz, 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.

This LP comes as a limited edition with a slipmat
