See Pixies against an inspiring backdrop in Cornwall

The release of the first new Pixies album in over 20 years means one thing - a new global tour for everybody's favourite band at univeristy. 

The audience may be older, but the support is likely to be as fervent as ever when the original lineup - excluding bassist Kim Deal - come to the Eden Project on July 9th to share their new record Indie Cindy with fans.

At this point, the alternative rock legend's status as one of the formative acts of the 80s and 90s is secure, with the likes of Radiohead's Thom Yorke and David Bowie among their legion of fans.

Inspiring everyone from Nirvana to the Strokes, Pixies even left such an impression on U2's Bono that he proclaimed them to be "one of America's greatest bands ever".

High praise indeed. So with this in mind, don't let the rather middling reviews of Indie Cindy put you off. It was always find itself in the shadow of the band's now legendary back catalogue, and it's worth going just for when they delve into this rich selection of tracks alone.

If you need more incentive to head down to Cornwall, you'll find so much going on that it's worth making a holiday out of it, so check out our short breaks to the south-west.
