Today, Pixies release Beneath The Eyrie Demos: Pt. 1, three tracks recorded over the course of 2018 leading up to the band’s December 2019 Beneath The Eyrie album sessions at Dreamland Recordings in Woodstock, NY. Written by Charles Thompson, the three songs, ‘The Good Works of Cyrus (Demo),’ ‘Please Don’t Go (Demo),’ and ‘Chapel Hill (Demo),’ is now available for the first time on all streaming and download services, and can be accessed here.
Beneath The Eyrie, produced by GRAMMY-nominated Tom Dalgety (Ghost, Royal Blood, Pixies’ Head Carrier), was released on September 13, 2019 (BMG/Infectious) and has received some of the best reviews of the band’s post-reunion career. Under the Radar wrote that Beneath The Eyrie “can be legitimately a consideration of their best work, taking off from where Trompe le Monde left off,” while the UK’s Arts Desk said, “With Beneath The Eyrie, it’s time to consider Pixies on the same terms as some of their heroes and influences, like Lou Reed, Leonard Cohen, and Neil Young.”
