The iconic alternative rock group PIXIES still has unfinished business in Australia and New Zealand, so they’ll be back in 2022 for their massive Come On Pilgrim tour. The electric 1987 EP Come On Pilgrim and the groundbreaking 1988 full-length album Surfer Rosa by Pixies established a new genre and shaped modern music for a decade. “We are happy to be able to announce our return to Australia and Rescheduled Zealand in December 2022, following the unfortunate delay of some of our gigs back in 2020,” the band stated in a statement announcing the new dates. Surfer Rosa is on tour.

American alternative music group The Pixies was founded in Boston, Massachusetts, in 1986. The band split up amicably in 1993 but came back together in 2004. Black Francis (vocals, rhythm guitar, composer), Joey Santiago (lead guitar), Kim Deal (bass, backing vocals), and David Lovering made the band up until 2013. (drums). The Pixies hired Kim Shattuck as a touring bassist when Deal left in 2013; she was later replaced by Paz Lenchantin, who joined the band permanently in 2016.
The Pixies, who incorporate elements from punk rock and surf music, are known for being a part of the potential alternative rock explosion of the 1990s. Dramatic “loud-quiet-loud” transitions distinguish their songs. Francis is the primary lyricist for the Pixies, and his sometimes strange songs include unusual topics, including extraterrestrials, incest, and biblical brutality. The US saw small success with them, while Europe saw more success. Their harsh pop music impacted bands like Weezer, Radiohead, the Smashing Pumpkins, and Nirvana.
