The Breeders were formed in 1989 by Kim Deal of Pixies fame and her twin sister Kelley Deal. Initially, Kim started the band as a side project during a hiatus from the Pixies, but The Breeders quickly gained a distinct reputation and following of their own and went on to open for Nirvana. Their 1993 album ‘Last Splash’ is perhaps their most recognized work, largely due to the hit single ‘Cannonball,’ which became an alt-rock classic. The band’s sound is characterized by a combination of fuzzy guitar riffs, melodic bass lines, and candid lyrics, fusing elements of punk, pop, and indie rock. Over the years, while the lineup has undergone several changes, the Deal sisters have remained at the core of the band’s identity, ensuring its longevity and continuous influence on alternative music.
Since their hiatus in 1995, the band have spent the 2000s releasing albums sporadically, including ‘Title TK’ (2002), ‘Mountain Battles’ (2008) and ‘All Nerve’ (2018), they also celebrated the 30th anniversary of ‘Last Splash’ with an album reissue, extensive tour and appearances at Coachella and Riotfest, alongside shows with Foo Fighters and Belly.
