With their fall tour set to open next week with a four-night club run in Los Angeles, the Pixies today released the first in a series of new studio EPs — a four-song set cleverly titled EP-1 that’s available as a digital download or on limited-edition 10-inch vinyl — and premiered the music video for one of its songs, “Indie Cindy.”

The Pixies will debut their new Kim Deal-less lineup with four Los Angeles concerts prior to their appearance at Riot Fest Chicago on Sept. 15, to be followed by four more small club shows in New York City before the band — with Kim Shattuck of The Muffs on bass — embarks on a European tour.

The group earlier this summer release its first new song in nine years, a single called “Bagboy” featuring backing vocals by Jeremy Dubs in place of Deal. In addition to “Indie Cindy,” the new songs released today include “Andro Queen,” “Another Toe in the Ocean” and “What Goes Boom,” and they can be purchased in a variety of packages at pixiesmusic.com.

The EP is the first of several due over the next 15 months, according to a New York Times interview with the band published today. Black Francis tells the newspaper: “If we’re going to keep touring like this, we need some kind of new story, a new life, something.”
