Pixies premiere new music video for “What Goes Boom”

Pixies have released a new music video for "What Goes Boom," marking the group's third video in support of their latest EP, EP1, and fifth music video of 2013.

Shortly after the departure of longtime bassist Kim Deal, Pixies returned with a standalone single and video, "Bagboy," (followed by an alternate video) with a surprise, four-song EPEP1, their first full release in 22 years, arriving just two months later.

EP1 has, so far, spawned two other videos, for tracks "Indie Cindy" and "Andro Queen." Pixies' latest video premiered today on NPR, along with an interview about their recent comeback and musical direction.

Watch the Jonathan Furmanski and Matthew Galkin directed video for "What Goes Boom," which was inspired by Star Wars, below:
