Pixies Premiere Video for “Classic Masher”

Pixies’ bassist Paz Lenchantin has put on her director’s hat for the band’s next music video, this one for the track “Classic Masher” from the new album Head Carrier (pixiesmusic/Play It Again Sam, 9/30/16).

The clip was shot in Los Angeles earlier this month and features Lenchantin’s father Mario Merdirossian as the pianist as well as three friends – Hannah Vandermolen (driver), Adelaide Crocker (middle seat) and Virginia Rand (red lips).  Graffiti was created by Jules Muck “MuckRock.”

Lenchantin, who has directed a number of short films and videos in the past, said about the “Classic Masher” video, “Mephistopheles, the mocking and sarcastic devil behind every classic masher…Besides that, who doesn’t like a talking piano?”

Pixies just wrapped a four-date “warm up” run in Southern California and will head to Europe on November 15 for a three-week tour, Leg One of the band’s 2016-2017 global trek.  Dates are below.
