Former PIXIES frontman BLACK FRANCIS has hinted that the band may record again in the future.

The band have not released an album since 1991's TROMPE LE MONDE, but BLACK FRANCIS and Kim Deal have gone on to forge successful solo careers.

Francis renamed himself Frank Black for his solo ventures, while Deal went on to perform with her sister Kelley in THE BREEDERS.

"It's just a waiting game right now. Whatever we do in the future is gonna have to be fresh," Francis told the NME.

"I have to see if the band as a whole wants to go into the recording studio for a new record," he added. "That makes sense on some level. For us, there's gotta be an angle. It can't be just playing our old songs over and over."

THE PIXIES reformed for a world tour in 2004, which saw them play at Coachella and Reading and Leeds Festivals.
