    Pixies have announced Live in Brixton, an expansive box set containing recordings from their June 2004 reunion shows in London due out January 28th, 2022.

    The historic four-night run at O2 Brixton Academy marked the return of the alt rock icons from an 11-year hiatus. Each set saw the Pixies playing material from their landmark albums Doolittle and Surfer Rosa, key song and rarities, and covers of Peter Ivers’ “In Heaven” (from David Lynch’s Eraserhead) and The Jesus and Mary Chain’s “Head On.”

    “It was an amazing reception, I guess they had missed us over all those years,” guitarist Joey Santiago remembered about the shows in a statement. “I particularly remember getting word that the balcony was swaying, and seeing that the crowd didn’t want to leave long after we had finished the show.”

    Drummer David Lovering added, “Having played there in the past, the Brixton Academy was a familiar venue and the shows were a fantastic experience. When I opened with my Scientific Phenomenalist show, I was a Pixie opening for Pixies. I could do no wrong. But, I did! It was an absolute thrill, though, to present it there. All in all music or magic, the audiences were very kind and receptive and made it a joy to play.”

    Newly mastered by Phil Kinrade at Alchemy Mastering, Live In Brixton will be released on both vinyl and CD formats, each of which consists of eight discs. Limited to 2,000 copies sold, the vinyl set is pressed on heavyweight 180-gram wax, with each show split between two colored LPs. It’s enclosed in a deluxe slipcase box using silver foil to depict Brixton Academy itself. There will also be a limited edition “splattered” vinyl box set exclusive to independent retailers.

    All formats include a 24-page booklet featuring photographs and new artwork, as well as memories and paraphernalia from fans who were in attendance at the shows. Pre-orders are ongoing.
