The Pixies have extended their in-progress international tour into the New Year, unveiling another round of North American dates.

The Pixies, currently comprised of singer/guitarist Black Francis, guitarist Joey Santiago, drummer David Lovering and bassist Kim Shattuck, are in the midst of a European run that wraps up in late November. Since last check, a new leg has been added, beginning with a Jan. 15 performance in Toronto. The 33-city trek wraps up March 1 in Austin, TX.

The Pixies unveiled "EP-1," a four-track EP, in early September. The collection features "Bagboy," the group's first new material in more than 20 years, as well as a cover of Warren Zevon's "Ain't That Pretty At All."

The EP is the first in a series of mini-releases that the group will drop sporadically over the next 15 months, according to a recent interview with the New York Times.

"If we're going to keep touring like this, we need some kind of new story, a new life, something," Francis said in the interview.

No official word on when the next EP will surface.
