The Pixies have already released several EPs in the last year, but now the band are ready to release a full album this time around. It was announced yesterday that after 20 plus years, the rock legends will be releasing a new album titled, Indie Cindy.

Indie Cindy, the first album since 1991’s Trompe le Monde, will be available through the band’s own record label, Pixiemusic, and is set to be hit store on April 29th with a limited-edition vinyl release schedule to be released on Record Store Day a.k.a. April 19th. The full LP will feature 12 new tracks which will include tracks featured on EP-1, EP-2 as well as the recently released EP-3.

Gil Norton who previously oversaw production on DoolittleBossanova, and Trompe le Monde is back to produce the full-length. Another thing that might make this upcoming album special is the fact that unlike the EPs which were only released in digital formats or vinyl, the tracks can all be found in one place.

Indie Cindy will be available in CD, vinyl, and digital formats while those who order it on iTunes will be treated to an exclusive 13-track live set from Pixies’ recent North American tour.

In addition to the information pertaining to the new album, today, the band have released the official first music video from the album for the track, “Snake.” That video, along with the track list for the album can be viewed below.

The Pixies Release New Song and EP

Earlier this Summer, the Pixies first surprised us when they announced that bassist, Kim Deal had decided to leave the band after being with them for 25 years. About three months later, the reason behind her departure was still she “departed the band.”

After that, it was shortly announced that they released their first new single, “Bagboy.” Today, the band released the song “Indie Cindy” but that wasn’t the only bit of news from their camp that they were hiding; no, they also announced that they would be releasing a new EP titled, EP-1, today!

Talk about being secretive.

EP-1 is part of series of mini-releases the band will release over the next 15 months. For those interested, the album will be released both digitally and on vinyl, but only a lucky 5,000 will be able to score one of the vinyls.

“It’s all about self-doubt,” frontman Charles Thompson, aka Black Francis, told the Times about the song. “It says to the audience, I don’t know if this romance has still got what it needs to happen again. I don’t know if you’ll accept me; I don’t know if I accept you. But we have this memory. Can we do it again?”

Check out the tracklist for the EP as well as the video for the song below.

EP-1 TRACKLIST:

1-Andro Queen
2-Another Toe In The Ocean
3-Indie Cindy
4-What Goes Boom
