Interview: Black Francis Conceived His First Son at Coachella (And Other Stories Regarding The Pixies)
There are many people claim to be conceived at Woodstock in 1969. Not to be outdone by the feckless hippies, Black Francis says that he conceived his first son at his first Coachella ten years ago. Cherish the thought.
The band will release, Indie Cindy, their follow-up to 1991’s Trompe le Monde, on April 29 in North America via the band’s own indie label, Pixiesmusic.
And surprise, surprise her name isn’t Kim.

Plus announce a North American tour with Best Coast and FIDLAR.
Ever wonder what a Pixies song would sound like if you just isolated Frank Black’s vocals? Well, now thanks to the Soundcloud account IsolatedVocals you can finally hear for yourself.
Founding Pixies bassist Kim Deal has left the band. Remaining members Black Francis, Joey Santiago and David Lovering officially announced her departure on Friday (June 14) through the Pixies Facebook page.
