Fresh off the debut of their first new single in years, The Pixies announced dates for the first leg of their world tour, plus they've revealed Kim Shattuck from the Muffs will be joining Black Francis, Joey Santiago, and David Lovering on tour.  Shattuck previously performed with the Pixies in 2009 and the band is excited to bring her on board for the upcoming live dates.  The four have been holed up in Los Angeles rehearsing for the upcoming tour, which will include brand new Pixies material, favorites, and some rarely played songs.  Black Francis posted the following info on the Pixies' official site:

"This will kick off the first tour the Pixies have done in nearly two years, and will give them an opportunity to do something they haven't been able to do in two decades : premiere brand new Pixies songs, the first collection of new material since 1991's Trompe le Monde."

"Along with everyone's favorites, we'll be playing songs that we haven't played in ages or never played live before...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."

Dates for the European leg of the tour were announced today and more dates are expected to be announced shortly.  Check out the itinerary below along with video from 2009 of the Pixies performing "Here Comes Your Man" with Shattuck at a show in Los Angeles.
