Pixies Visiting “Lost Cities,” But Should They Make A New Album?

Riding an unending wave of nostalgia, the Pixies plan to continue their 2009 Doolittle 20th Anniversary tour, extending the trek by 19 additional US dates starting in October. They’re calling this portion “Lost Cities” because they’re hitting cities they’ve never previously visited. (Hard to believe they never played Wilmington.) As a result of the ongoing popularity and sold out Doolittle shows, the band’s also considering recording a new album. Drummer David Lovering had this to say:

It’s definitely a stronger possibility than it was a few years ago. It’s going to be baby steps, though. We have the formula and we know we can do it. But if we put something out, it has to be good. Period. We don’t want to break the legacy. It’s much more of a free subject to talk about now though. We’re gonna go slowly and see what will happen.

While you mull over broken legacies, you can read more at Rolling Stone, where Lovering also talks about the possibility of a Surfer Rosa 25th Anniversary tour in 2013 (“If we don’t have any new material, I think that’s what we’ll do…”), among other things.
