Rumours of a new Pixies release have finally come to fruition: it's a box set of reissued albums called Minotaur.

Unfortunately for patient fans (they've waited 18 years for a follow-up to Trompe Le Monde), the 15 June release won't include new material.

The Limited Edition and Deluxe Edition box sets - including all four albums plus the Come On Pilgrim EP - are being repackaged by original artworkers Vaughan Oliver and Simon Larbalestier (remember Trompe's eyeballs?). Rolling Stone has the skinny, including the whopping $450 price tag on the Deluxe Edition!
