Pixies announce 30th anniversary Come On Pilgrim… It’s Surfer Rosa box set

The band is playing both releases in full during a five-night stint at London's Roundhouse

Pixies 30th anniversary surfer rosa

This year marks the 30th anniversary of Surfer Rosa, the seminal debut album from the Pixies. To commemorate the occasion, the alt-rockers and label 4AD have announced three special edition box sets featuring the original 1988 LP alongside their eight-track, 1987 mini-album, Come On Pilgrim, which was recorded during the band’s first-ever studio session.

Beginning September 28th, fans can pick up a three-CD box set and/or a standard edition three-LP box set on gold vinyl that includes a soft-back booklet. A deluxe edition three-LP box set on clear vinyl with a hard-back book will be available in November. Each release also comes packaged with Live From the Fallout Shelter, a live session that originally aired in 1986 on WJUL-FM in Lowell, Massachusetts.

Longtime Pixies collaborator Vaughan Oliver returns as the designer, reimagining his original artwork three decades later.
