The recording process for this album was a flashback to the band’s early days, according to the press release:
For the first time since their very early days, the Pixies spent a total of six weeks in pre-production, writing, arranging and rehearsing a plethora of songs.  Between the band’s late-80s/early 90s touring schedule and delivering an album once a year, there simply wasn’t time for more than a day or so of fleshing out their music before recording started.
Album pre-order info for Head Carrier is up on the Pixies’ official site. Check out their scheduled tour dates below:
