Pixies recently announced that their sophomore “post-reunion” album, ‘Head Carrier,’ will be released on September 30 (Pixiesmusic/Play It Again Sam).

Fans can get a taste of the new music by going to pixiesmusic.com and checking out the first single, Um Chagga Lagga. Featuring original artwork by the band’s longtime art director, the legendary Vaughan Oliver, the album will be available in various formats and can be pre-ordered now; go to pixiesmusic.com for details and purchasing.

A special limited edition deluxe box set of ‘Head Carrier’ is available exclusively through Pixiesmusic.com, and includes the CD, the album on heavy-weight/180 grams black vinyl, and a 24-page, oversized booklet with the song’s lyrics and Vaughan Oliver’s evocative, original artwork.
