Pixies announced six “special” and “intimate” shows in North America on Wednesday.

The concerts are set to take place this December in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York City and Boston, with Toronto marking the solo Canadian stop on the short trek.

Beneath the Eyrie was released earlier this month as the band’s seventh and most recent album, and will be promoted during the shows, ahead of a supposedly soon-to-be-revealed major North American tour in 2020.
