Pixies Contemplating New Album

Influential alt-rockers may record new record after all

Despite claiming ever since they reunited in 2004 that they would not be recording a new album, the Pixies are reportedly considering putting together some new material.

"We’ve been talking about [doing an album] for about three years now, actually," drummer David Lovering told "I don’t know if it will come to fruition; I’m waiting and waiting to see what will happen. All I can say is if there is one, it better be good. We’d really have to work at it."

The band have recorded one new song since the reunion - 2004's 'Bam Thwok' - but have since denied any possibility that they may record anything more.

"We’re waiting for that, like, 'A-ha!' moment. I’m already there. It's just a matter of timing and everything aligning," said guitarist Joey Santiago told Billboard. "I guess there’s a little pressure from the legacy thing. Sure there is. But I don’t think there’s any preconceived thing that anyone could expect us to do. The possibilities are pretty wide open, I’d say."

If they were to record a new album it would be their first since 1991.
