All over, according to Facebook.

Interesting about FB "recording in Wales" though.

Is that wales, UK or is there a place in America called Wales as well? I know there's a new south wales, so I'm guessing it's probably that. Of it's Wales, UK then I demand a small solo tour. LOL@there probably not being a new Pixies album now.

Violet also says that a vinyl release of Let the People Speak, with alternate mixes and an extra track, is coming out. I'll buy it.

Grand Duchy were cool. I'm glad they existed. I love the idea of a married couple who make music together (with minimal or no other collaborators), but I guess that can be difficult, too. The first album is nice, but the second album took their vision to the next level, I thought. I genuinely hope she makes more music.

It's intriguing, at the very least! We'll hear more in the coming weeks, I'm sure.

According to the Facebook announcement (https://www.facebook.com/grandduchy/posts/281909648577368), Violet is currently working in the studio with friends and artists. I, for one, plan to keep up with her future output.

Violet has posted a picture of Charles and Joey. They're standing outside a Ministry of Defence sign. Clearly in the UK for some reason!

Joey's latest tweet was posted in 'Monmouth, Monmouthshire', so there's clearly something going on there.

Nice summary of all the 'evidence' here.

http://mrmikegriffiths.co.uk/2012/09/25/are-the-pixies-recording-a-new-album-in-wales/

Am a bit amazed it has taken the story this long to break onto the wider web given the NME was calling out new Pxies albums on the vaguest of quotes for the past seven years. Anyway I dared not hope after the dissapoinment of Minatour but it does generally look like something might be happening for real this time

"No sign of Kim and Dave Lovering so far. " The last paragraph is kind of a letdown...

I bet you could have talked to Kristin Hersh all night, Zig. I look forward to the fB interview from the valleys.

It's still there, just understandably subject to privacy settings, like the Charles/Joey MoD picture.
