Pixies are releasing a new album, Beneath the Eyrie, on September 13 via Infectious/BMG. Previously they shared its first single, “On Graveyard Hill,” as well as a video for the song. Now they have shared another song from the album, “Catfish Kate,” via an animated video for the track. Watch it below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

UK/European-based Krank! Collective produced the “Catfish Kate” video (they previously produced the animated video for “Tenement Song,” from Pixies’ 2016 album, Head Carrier). In particular, Krank!‘s Neirin Best and Lianne Pierce created the “Catfish Kate” video. A press release said they did so “using a variety of handmade and digital animation techniques, including old school light box, painted animation, rotoscoping, and digital compositing.”

A previous press release said Beneath the Eyrie features “tales of witches, Daniel Boone, misfits, and other characters.”

The band features Black Francis (vocals, guitars), Joey Santiago (guitars), David Lovering (drums), and Paz Lenchantin (bass). Tom Dalgety produced Beneath the Eyrie, which was written over the course of 2018 and recorded last December at Dreamland Recordings near Woodstock, NY. The studio was originally St. John’s Church built in 1896. The album’s title was inspired when “Lovering spotted an eagles nest - or ‘eyrie’ - right above the studio in a tree.”

The making of the album is being chronicled in It’s a Pixies Podcast, which is produced by the band and hosted/narrated by New York Times best-selling author Tony Fletcher.

Beneath the Eyrie is Pixies’ third album since reuniting in 2004 and is the follow-up to 2016’s Head Carrier (which was the first album to feature Lenchantin) and 2014’s Indie Cindy (which was more of an EP collection than an album).

Korda Marshall, UK SVP Music, BMG, had this to say in a previous press release about signing the band: “There are not many bands that can justifiably claim to have changed the sound of music. The Pixies are one, and they continue to push the boundaries with their brilliant new album. We are honored and proud to have signed them to Infectious/BMG and really look forward to working with them in the future.”
