Pixies are an alternative rock band with surf punk roots. Their current lineup is Black Francis (vocals, rhythm guitar, songwriter), Joey Santiago (lead guitar), Pat Lenchantin (bass, backing vocals) and David Lovering (drums).
The band have taken a couple of breaks since they formed in 1986. A brief pause between 1989-1990 and 1993-2003 allowed other projects to be explored, notably Kim Deal’s band The Breeders. Deal left The Pixies in 2013, replaced initially by touring bassist Kim Shattuck (Muffs / Pandoras) and then in 2014 by Pat Lenchantin (A Perfect Circle), who became a permanent member in 2016.
