The album is set to be released on September 30th, 2016.

A special limited edition deluxe box set of Head Carrier will be available exclusively through Pixiesmusic.com, and will include the CD, the album on heavy-weight/180 gram black vinyl, and a 24-page, oversized booklet with the song’s lyrics and Oliver’s evocative, original artwork. Also available only through the band’s website is a special bundle that includes the deluxe box set, special t-shirt, and a special screen printed 12 “x 12” record sleeve-sized poster of Oliver’s album artwork. To support Head Carrier, Pixies will launch the first leg of their 2016 – 2017 global tour with a European run that begins November 15th in Vienna. Tickets go on sale Friday, July 8th. Please go to pixiesmusic.com for ticketing info.
The newly appointed bass player Paz Lenchantin states that: “I was very nervous in the beginning when I went to that first rehearsal. There were these shoes I felt I had to fill and I tried to do the best I could for the fans, to make the live performances sound true to the originals. I spent three years learning to understand what being a Pixie meant, and now, my heart, spirit, and love for their music is embedded in me and I feel like I have become a Pixie. We had been more about the history of the Pixies, but now, we are about going forward.”
