Scratch that, the Pixies are coming to America after all!

Between Frank Black’s upcoming solo endeavors and The Breeders’ newly announced U.S. tour, it was reasonable to believe that we wouldn’t be getting any Pixies reunion tour tour dates here in the states anytime soon — after all, that’s what we concluded. Well, it turns out we were completely wrong… and we couldn’t be more happy about it!

According to Spin, the Pixies will indeed hit North America this fall to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the band’s legendary album, Doolittle. Following its upcoming European dates, the quartet will hit “Oakland, Los Angeles, Seattle, Denver, Chicago, Boston, Washington DC, New York City, and ‘maybe Montreal’ this fall,” Black confirmed. Exact details have yet to be announced, but the frontman did go on to note that the band will be playing Doolittle in its entirety at each show.

And if that wasn’t enough, Spin also raises the possibility that the Pixies may continue their reunion into 2010, which will mark the 20th anniversary of Bossa Nova.

In other words, stay tuned…
