Just two weeks after their long-time (albeit intermittently involved) bassist Kim Deal left the band, the Pixies are back! And for the first time in nearly a decade, they're debuting a new song: Bagboy.

"The lyrics, coincidentally, were composed at a Starbucks Coffee in Harvard Square in Cambridge, about a hundred feet from where, 25 years ago, I composed some of the lyrics to an old Pixies song called 'Break My Body,'" vocalist Francis told Rolling Stone. "The music for the song has been around for a few years. There are some demos I made with Joey and David a few years ago in Los Angeles, related to a film idea that still has yet to see the light of day, although work on the music continued."


While the protagonist of the music video isn't nearly as manic as REM's or as psychotic as Pearl Jam's, he does have the stones to bathe in—and then eat from—a giant tube of breakfast cereal, which is I guess commendable.
