Pixies, Andrew W.K. and More Added To Riot Fest
The line-up additions come as a handful of previously announced performers bow out of the festival, such as Bad Brains, Attack Attack! and most notably Motφrhead, who've cancelled all 2013 tour dates while frontman Lemmy Kilmister deals with health issues.
Pixies will perform the show with Kim Shattuck of the Muffs handling bass duties, as founding member Kim Deal officially quit the band earlier this year. Undaunted, the Pixies released a new song, "Bagboy," their first new material since one-off 2004 single, "Bam Thwok."
"Along with everyone's favorites, we'll be playing songs that we haven't played in ages or never played live before," said Pixies frontman Black Francis in a press statement. "Songs like 'Brick is Red,' 'Havalina,' 'Tony's Theme.' and 'Sad Punk.' We've probably rehearsed some 80 songs, so we'll be able to change up the set at the last minute if we feel like it." more on this story
