Are Pixies Recording New Material?

How much do you trust Perry Farrell? Enough to believe him when he says Pixies are recording? Because that is, indeed, what he’s saying. Slicing Up Eyeballs has spotted a tweet from Farrell, in which he responds to a fan who reminisces, “Back in the day the cool kids at my high school it was all about Jane’s Addiction and the Pixies,” with the revelation, “Still is Pixies r recording.” Uh, what? Despite years of teasing and the 2004 single “Bam Thwok,” as far as we know, Pixies haven’t written any new material since the ’90s. Of course, this is far from a confirmation — Farrell could certainly just be messing with eager Pixies fans and hasn’t elaborated any since the original tweet — but we’ll certainly keep an eye out for more news.
