Pixies have unveiled a new single and accompanying video for “Human Crime.” Pixies have only released only one other single since 2019’s Beneath The Eyrie.

The accompanying video to “Human Crime” was directed by band member Paz Lenchantin, the bassist who has played with the Pixies since 2014.

“The storyline is loosely based on an ‘inside joke’ between Charles [Thompson] and I about going on tour,” Lenchanti said. “How we go through a door from our reality state into the altered state of becoming and being a Pixie.”


The Pixies are set to hit the road with several sold-out U.S. dates. They will also headline the Vive Latino 2022 festival in Mexico City before heading across seas to open the BBC 6 Music Festival.
