Ahead of the Pixies upcoming Australian tour, drummer David Lovering spent a few moments talking to the Guardian. For the most part the article doesn't include much new info, it's more of a summary of the band's career from the classic years up until the present day.  Lovering did make a few comments about new touring bassist Paz Lenchantin, commenting that she makes him play better and comparing her style to Kim Deal:

"When we had Kim Deal, that’s all I knew as a bass player – I didn’t know anything different. And now playing with Paz, it’s a different breed...The Pixies are all eighth-notes on the bass, you know? Paz has got me on guard. I’m just trying to lock in with her. It’s much more powerful."

Lovering was reminded that both Deal and Kim Shattuck, who played with the Pixies on tour last year, were guitar players who switched to bass out of necessity, to which he responded:

"It definitely does change it! I’d completely forgot that Kim Deal was a guitar player before,” he says. “But you’re right, and there was the one before Paz [Shattuck] who was also a guitar player, so now we’re finally on to a bass player."

The Pixies still enjoy being evasive about what the future holds for the band. When asked for details, Lovering said "as a magician I don't like to reveal surprises" and added that there could be an album or an EP3 on the way.  I'd at least put money on an EP at this point, all things considered.
