Pixies have today premiered the new video for track ‘Magdelena’, via YouTube. ‘Magdelena‘ is the second video from ‘EP-2, released on January 3rd 2014, and the song, as the band’s Black Francis put it, is “basically a blues-shape with a Beatles-esque left turn, and a lot of Pixies-referential lyrics.”

This quite unusual video was conceived and directed by Judy Jacob (for commercial, music video and corporate film makers ‘Everything is OK‘). Jacob was also responsible for some of the films made for Pixies’ 2009-2011 “Doolittle” world tour.  Completely different from the other Pixies music videos for this project, the provocative “Magdelena” clip stars innovative British dance/theatre/performance artist Nando Messias.

Pixies are currently in the midst of the North American leg of their 2013-2014 world tour.  They head to South America at the end of March for a series of major festivals including performances at Lollapaloozas in Chile, Argentina and Brazil, and then return to Europe  for the summer festival circuit.  Dates are below…
