With a new record coming in September, Pixies are definitely handling things differently this time around. The legendary group seems to be taking their own road, releasing their lead single, announcing a podcast about the making of Beneath The Eyrie and now releasing the video for “On Graveyard Hill.” With all of that though, the video shows another side to the Boston four piece-a playful one.
While there have been Pixies videos in the past where members were in them, they were primarily of the band performing in one capacity or another. Here they all have their respective roles in the psych infused and at times, dark narrative. It shows that a band that’s always come off as really serious seems to finally be having fun after all these years.
The video can be streamed above or on YouTube, the song can be streamed on all streaming platforms or purchasd in all digital music retailers. Beneath The Eyrie can be pre-ordered directly from the band ahead of its September 13 release on multiple formats and bundles. Pixies will be on tour beginning August 31 at Pasadena Daydream Festival in Pasadena, CA until October 28 at Coliseum da Coruna in La Coruna, Spain. Their complete tour schedule can be found here.
