Pixies return with the release of their first new music for 2024 in brand new AA-side single ‘You’re So Impatient’ / ‘Que Sera, Sera’. Listen here.

After debuting on Steve Lamacq’s BBC Radio 6 Music show, the new AA-side finds Pixies creating a macabre and cinematic picture of American pop culture. Furious punk ditty ‘You’re So Impatient’ is an explosive two minute, nine second Zombie attack at the mall, before Pixies twist the classic 1950s standard ‘Que Sera, Sera’ into a dark folk tale, told anew through the lens of a sci-fi monster epic – originally recorded as the soundtrack for the US TV Show “From”. A limited edition 7” single including both tracks will be released on July 19th.

Speaking about ‘You’re So Impatient’, vocalist, guitarist and songwriter Black Francis said: “‘You’re So Impatient’ is a slightly comedic suburban culture moment: there’s this guy, there’s this gal, there’s this tug-of-love dynamic going on. But the backdrop is the mall. And while the mall is crass, it’s also a very zombie, rock ‘n’ roll horror movie setting.”

2024 is a momentous year for Pixies. 35 years since their groundbreaking Platinum-certified album Doolittle catapulted the band into the UK Top Ten, and 20 years since their celebrated reformation at Coachella, Pixies are deep into their second act. Bigger than ever, playing to fans spanning multiple generations, and in the midst of a creative purple patch, with more new music soon to be announced.

Pixies’ new AA side single arrives amidst a packed touring schedule set to take in circa 70 live shows across the world through 2024 – with even more dates to be announced for 2025. They have just kicked off a North American tour with Modest Mouse and Cat Power, and will return to the UK in August for a run of already sold out headline shows, including the Glasgow Academy and Halifax’s Piece Hall, as well as major festival performances at London’s All Points East and Victorious Festival, and headline shows at Galway Airport, Belfast’s Custom House Square and Dublin’s RDS Simmonscourt.
