The band are already confirmed to appear at this year's Coachella festival in California. The tour will be their first since 1993.
A spokesman for the band remarked that details are yet to be finalised, but told reporters: "For a long time, it was far from certain that this would actually happen. However, you may be interested to learn that, at last, the reunion has been confirmed. Their booking agents have been confirming shows with promoters over the last few days."
The Pixies are expected to play a series of warm up shows prior to Coachella, probably in Canada. Other festival appearances have been rumoured, including Glastonbury and T in the Park, as well as a possible support slot on the Red Hot Chili Peppers' European tour this summer.
