A decade after a bitter breakup, seminal alternative rock act the Pixies may reunite next year. At deadline, rumors of a tour and a potential new studio album remain unconfirmed. The manger of frontman Frank Black (aka Black Francis) tells Billboard.com, “I have received an offer for the Pixies to perform in April. That said, over the past 10 years, I have received dozens of offers for the Pixies.” A spokesperson for the group’s former label, 4AD, had no comment on potential reunion plans.
The group’s last major tour came while supporting U2 on a number of U.S. dates on the 1992 Zoo TV trek. Goldenvoice Promotions head Paul Tollett tells Billboard.com he has tried to book the Pixies “every year” for the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in Indio, Calif. “I still haven’t made any movement,” he reports. “[I’m] not sure if they are speaking to each other.”
