Billed as the first leg of their World Tour, Pixies have announced they'll be heading to the UK/EU later this year for an extensive tour, which takes in the likes of the Apollo in Manchester and London.

Replacing Kim Deal will be Kim Shattuck (The Pandoras, The Muffs), and is set to feature new material, along with a set packed with hits.

Along with everyone's favorites, we'll be playing songs that we haven't played in ages or never played live before," said Black Francis. "Songs like 'Brick is Red,' 'Havalina,' 'Tony's Theme.' and 'Sad Punk.' We've probably rehearsed some 80 songs, so we'll be able to change up the set at the last minute if we feel like it. We're all really looking forward to this tour."

Check out the tour dates below (tickets go on sale 9am on July 2nd), along wiht the video for their new song 'Bagboy'.
