PIXIES RELEASE “TENEMENT SONG,” FIRST MUSIC VIDEO FOR UPCOMING ALBUM HEAD CARRIER

The music video for “Tenement Song” makes its bow today as the first music video for the Pixies’ upcoming album Head Carrier, due out September 30 (Pixiesmusic/Play It Again Sam/PIAS).  You can view the video HERE; the song can be streamed/purchased HERE.

Taking its influence from the song’s lyrics and Vaughan Oliver’s album artwork, the video was conceived and created by the UK/European-based Krank! Collective and follows a journey through a squalid tenement block on the brink of demolition.  The Krank! team – Neirin Best, Lianne Pierce and Xavier Burrow – created the video using a variety of handmade and digital animation techniques, including old school light box, painted animation, rotoscoping and digital compositing.

Pixies head out on the road November 15 to begin its 2016-17 global tour to support Head Carrier.  Dates for Leg One are below.
