    Pixies go on an epic journey from a 7-11 to the “Vault of Heaven” on their newest single. The track appears on their September 30th album, Doggereland if you live in California or New York, you’ll be able to hear it live on the band’s newly-announced four-date US tour.

    “Vault of Heaven” would seem to be about a bad drug trip, but that depends on a rare word they’re using often, “titrate.” As in, “There in the vault of heaven/ While trying to titrate/ I ended up in another case/ I went to 7-11 to try and get me straight/ I ended up there in outer space.”

    Most commonly, titration is an attempt to measure the concentration of a chemical, though in medicine the term is sometimes used when adjusting a dosage. Either way, the process doesn’t seem to be going well for Pixies. Black Francis sings, “There in the vault of heaven/ Trying to titrate/ I ended up in some dire straits.”


    The song comes with a music video directed by Charles Derenne. It shows the hijinks of a Zoro in a cape and speedo, a 7-11 store’s resident Elvis impersonator, and a wannabe Marilyn Monroe. Check it out below.

    This October, the band will play a four-date run in the United States. It opens in San Diego on the first, followed by shows in Anaheim, Los Angeles, and New York City, New York. Pixies also have a few dates left on their headlining tour of Europe, plus South American, Japanese, Australian, and New Zealander dates later in the year. Tickets are available here, and pre-orders for Doggerel are ongoing.
