Pixies "Catfish Kate"

After releasing an EP and five studio albums, Pixies disbanded in 1993. The band launched a reunion tour in April 2004, which led to touring the world for fifteen years, definitely a far longer period of time than they were anticipating. But writing, recording and releasing new music was something that the band had been wanting to do for a long time, so they secretly booked studio time in Wales for the fall of 2012. Six days into the recording, founding bassist Kim Deal decided to leave the band; Black Francis, Joey Santiago and David Lovering made the decision to carry on, finishing and releasing the band’s first studio album in more than two decades, 2014’s Indie Cindy. Also wanting to play live, the three began working with a number of touring bassists, including former A Perfect Circle bassist, Paz Lenchantin who came out on the road with the band in 2014. The band welcomed her as Pixies’ permanent bassist in 2016. that year the band, released its second post-reunion studio album, Head Carrier which was also Lenchantin’s recording debut with the band.

Today, pixies have shared a video Catfish Kate” off their forthcoming release Beneath The Eyrie. The clip was created by the UK/European-based Krank! Collective who also produced the animated video for Pixies’ “Tenement Song” from 2016’s Head Carrier. Krank!’s Neirin Best and Lianne Pierce created the “Catfish Kate” video using a variety of handmade and digital animation techniques, including old school light box, painted animation, rotoscoping and digital compositing. Beneath The Eyrie was produced by Tom Dalgety (Ghost, Royal Blood) and recorded last December at Dreamland Studios near Woodstock, NY.
