Looks like the album hype is gently ramping up ahead of the tour. Nice to see Paz in there, hope they keep her involved with the promotional stuff and don't just sideline her

I didn't see that at all. Good catch. Lot of people here will be relieved to know that Classic Masher is finally getting recorded.

So do you think these images are recent or from Toronto/Wales last year?

Great pictures. Looks like those recording sessions were pretty laid back. First-ever since Surfer Rosa ?

Looks like Joey definitely adopted his Duesenberg.

Pictures were taken at Riverside Studios in Bath.

Yup, it looks like Paz has passed the audition and is now an official member of the band. Looking forward to hearing some new material with Paz on bass. They're also touring this year, have some pretty big gigs booked in Europe.

Looking through social media the band appear to be in London for a month. Mixing maybe?

Looks like they're still recording ? Joey is "laying down some mindblowing guitar tracks" according to Paz instagram.

Yeah, that's the impression I got as well. When jake3 mentioned the social media clues I went looking and found that stuff on Paz's account as well. Looks like they are having fun though, that video of Joey exiting the cab is cool.

Third studio session in six months. Tends to confirm this will not be the rushed album some had imagined but rather a pretty ambitious project.

I'm not sure why you keep saying it would've been rushed? Just because it doesn't fit into either their old timeline or an old industry standard timeline, doesn't mean it's being rushed. We have no idea how much they've recorded/rehearsed this material. Some of it has been around for awhile anyway. Things can move quicker if an artist desires, that's how things have changed in the music world.

First off... WHOOO--HOOO!!!

Second off, I gotta say, given the massive list of unreleased registered songs on that publishing site, I would love to see just a flat out all-over-the-place White Album kind of thing. Fuck it. Double Disc, 28 song madness. Like a Pixies version of FMRM.

I'll be happy with whatever though :)

Considering the proportions of the chartboard appearing in the video and extrapolating the total number of columns, there must be about twelve songs in total.

Maybe there was a new chartboard at each studio session: 36 songs

Paz posted a small video of BF recording in the studio. Few hints here and there about the actual location... did some research but can't figure out yet which recording studio it actually is.

edit: the video also shows Tom Dalgety at the mixing console.

Bingo ! I just found where the Pixies are recording. They're at the RAK STUDIOS in London.

Screenshots from Paz video on Instagram:

Woohoo !

Nicely done. Is that a NEVE console?

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/RAK_Studios

The band's recording session late last year was with Dalgety as well, right?

I think the first visible column, left of "[Down In] Toulon", could be "Oona" from the BMI list

It could very well be Oona. Personally however I think the final letter looks more like an 'e' meaning it could possibly be '[You Might As Well Be] Gone'.

Yeah. And they were indeed at RAK studios (many clues on twitter and instagram, and latest Frank Interview then Joey's twitter referring directly to it.

Those were pretty long sessions. Canada ? Maybe ? Then Bath and London. Black Francis still laying down guitar tracks til the very last day.

If the whole bloody thing is yet to be mixed/mastered, I guess it'll take a few extra months to finalize. I'm expecting something in June to support the next tour. What's your opinion ?

I don't think you would spend this much time on something you didn't think could be amazing.

Lots of shepherding yet to do. I want this to be amazing.

Paz's Instagram account has been great to follow this past month. Nice to get some sneak peeks into their process.

How's BF's Instagram account been?

Same as Paz & Joey ones. We saw a lot of Joey, a lot of BF and a lot of Paz on those twitter/instagram accounts. But hardly any Dave at all.

Hope he didn't left the band !

It is a little strange he didn't show up in any of the pics. But at least he was in that promo clip with the feedback. Maybe they were just doing guitar parts/overdubs and vocals and the drums were already wrapped?

Edit: forgot that Dave is in this video clip on the left with his signature white ball cap.
