In the frost bitten run-up to Christmas 2018, Pixies set about recording a new album at Dreamland Studios, near Woodstock, NY. In an unprecedented move, they recorded every waking moment in the studio and provided all areas access to local music biographer Tony Fletcher to create a ground breaking document: It’s a Pixies Podcast. Over its 12 engrossing weekly episodes, It’s a Pixies Podcast reveals why the new album sounds like a dusty book of eerie folklore tales, full of black arts, Byronesque imagery, death, and its aftermath. Beneath the Eyrie is released on September 13.
