Two years after the 20th anniversary celebration of their beloved 1989 album, The Pixies have revealed they will get back together this fall more another leg of the “Doolittle Tour”. This time around, the band – Black Francis, Kim Deal, Joey Santiago and David Lovering – will focus on secondary markets in the United States.

Locally, fans can catch the Massachusetts-bred rockers play New Hampshire’s Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom on Sunday, October 30 as part of the “Lost Cities Doolittle Tour”. Tickets for the show will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster for $39.

“Two years and counting in this celebration of Doolittle’s 20th anniversary,” quipped drummer Lovering in a press release. “But people keep asking us to bring ‘Doolittle’ to their city, and we’re really happy to do it.”

On the “Doolittle Tour”, the band will perform all of the songs from their 1989 classic Doolittle and its related B-sides. The album, the band’s second full-length studio effort and the first to chart on Billboard’s album charts, includes classics such as “Debaser”, “Wave of Mutilation” and “Here Comes Your Man”.

“The thing about Doolittle,” said Santiago, the band’s guitarist, “is that it’s still as fresh today as it was when we recorded it. I loved it then and I love it now.”

“We’ve been together now longer than we were originally,” added Lovering. “And to be honest, we’re amazed that people still want to see us. We’re very fortunate to be out there and doing shows, and that there is a demand for us.”

For the “Doolittle Tour”, the band is also boasting a much bigger stage show. Along with an impressive light show, the band commissioned a group of four filmmakers to create 12 films especially for the production. The films are projected onto a massive backdrop video screen to accompany 12 of the 21 songs that comprise the show.

Other New England dates include the Palace Theatre in Waterbury, Connecticut on October 29 and the State Theatre in Portland, Maine on November 1. West Palm Beach indie rockers Surfer Blood will open each of the New England shows.
