The Pixies’ return to the North Charleston Performing Arts Center next week could be a different experience for fans who went to their last show at the venue in 2011. Bassist and co-founder Kim Deal has since left the iconic rock group, and remaining members — singer and guitarist Black Francis, guitarist Joey Santiago, drummer David Lovering — have been touring with bassist Paz Lenchantin, formerly of A Perfect Circle, since January 2014. Deal left while recording the 2014 album “Indie Cindy,” the band’s first album since 1991. The members decided to push forward with the new music and the touring, which is something special for a group that’s been known to take extended hiatuses before. In the past 18 months, they’ve played more than 120 shows worldwide. During this recent stint of concerts, crowds can expect classics from the Pixies’ catalogue, as well as brand-new songs just written in the past few months.
