Pixies were already billed for Boston Calling, Shaky Knees, and Amnesia Rockfest, and now they've announced a full North American tour surrounding those festivals. The tour includes NYC shows on May 27 at Beacon Theatre and May 28 at Kings Theatre (which re-opened earlier this month). Tickets for all dates go on sale Friday (2/27) and a fan presale begins Wednesday (2/25) at 9 AM EST. Password: "snakes."

UPDATE: John Grant is opening.

This tour will once again have Paz Lenchantin (The Entrance Band, A Perfect Circle, Zwan) on bass, and they're promising to debut some new material. All dates are listed below...
