Pixies have today shared the trailer for the 12-episode podcast It’s A Pixies Podcast. The first episode is slated for premiere on all podcast platforms on Thursday 27 June.

The series documents the making of their forthcoming album Beneath The Eyrie. It was recorded last December at Dreamland Recordings near Woodstock, NY.

With candid shots of the studio and snippets of the conversations acclaimed journalist Tony Fletcher has with the band, it looks like we will be getting closer to what life is like being in Pixies than ever before with the new feature.

The trailer celebrates the podcast features as something “unprecedented.” And it emphasises the uncompromising ways they went to get the footage, saying every part of the process of recording the album, every waking hour is committed to tape. Sounds good to us.


Two weeks ago, Pixies shared a track from their upcoming album, which isn't coming out until 13 September.

Of ‘On Graveyard Hill’, we gave a favourable review saying: "The recording truly captures that energy and adrenaline of going to see them at a gig, whilst still sounding refined and the obsessional work of an audiophile band.”

Pixies are coming to the UK soon.
