Pixies announce new EP, first full-length album since 1991, premiere “Snakes” video

Pixies have announced a new EP, EP-3, their third and final in a recent series, as well as a full-length studio album, Indie Cindy, their forth overall and first since 1991's Trompe Le Monde. Additionally, the band have released a video for their song "Snakes."

As with previous surprise releases, September's EP-1 and January's EP-2EP-3 is available for immediate digital download, as well as on limited 10-inch vinyl. It includes previously-released single "Bagboy," and three new tracks, "Silver Snail," "Ring The Bell," and "Jaime Bravo." Check out the cover art and tracklisting below:

Compiling all three EPs, Indie Cindy will arrive April 23 internationally and April 29 in North America, through the band's own label, Pixiesmusic. All tracks were recorded by longtime producer Gil Norton in the fall of 2012, during which bassist and founding member Kim Deal departed the band. The remaining members have since relied on live bassists, first Kim Shattuck then Paz Lenchantin, to tour the globe over the past year.
