Northampton musician Jeremy Dubs appears on new Pixies track
In an exciting bit of Massachusetts-centric music news, Northampton musician Jeremy Dubs (Bunnies, Speak!, Rabbit Rabbit) has been announced as appearing on the latest song from Boston alt-rock icons the Pixies.
The song in question, “Bagboy,” is the first new release by the band in nine years, and features Dubs playing bass and singing backing vocals in place of the group’s original bassist Kim Deal, who departed the Pixies two weeks ago.

Speculation concerning a possible new album from the band has been rampant ever since its 2004 reunion, and new material only stokes the dreams of many fans. The Pixies last studio album was Trompe le Monde, which was released in 1991. A download-only single, “Bam Thwok,” was released in conjunction with the group’s 2004 reunion, and featured lead vocals from Deal.
