Pixies have announced Live in Brixton, a new box set capturing the band’s 2004 concerts at London’s Brixton Academy.

The eight-disc collection will be released January 28. The vinyl version, which will be limited to 2,000 pieces, features different colored LPs for each of the four shows.

Pixies played the Brixton run as part of their 2004 reunion tour, which marked the first time the “Where Is My Mind?” rockers took the stage together since breaking up in 1993.

“It was an amazing reception, I guess they had missed us over all those years,” recalls guitarist Joey Santiago. “I particularly remember getting word that the balcony was swaying, and seeing that the crowd didn’t want to leave long after we had finished the show.”

Pixies would continue to play shows together following the reunion tour, but didn’t release any new music until after bassist Kim Deal left the group in 2013. Deal was replaced by Kim Shattuck of the punk band The Muffs, and then by ex-A Perfect Circle bassist Paz Lenchantin, who remains in Pixies to this day.
