The Pixies have revealed they are being bombarded by people to write some new songs, including U2 frontman Bono

Bono begged The Pixies to write some new songs.

The band split in 1993 but reunited in 2004 for a series on concerts, and while they have been playing live ever since, their last album studio LP 'Trompe le Monde' was released 20 years ago and they have been bombarded by people wanting them to pen new tracks including the U2 frontman.

Guitarist Joey Santiago said: "Bono even asked. He's like, 'Please make a record!'

"Goddamn, we can't leave that unturned. That would frustrate me. It would. I think we should do it. But it's up to everybody."

While Santiago has suggested writing new songs may cause "friction" between the band members, he believes the group - also made up of Black Francis, David Lovering and Kim Deal - are ready to work on new material and put all their problems behind them.

He added to website Spinner.com: "That talk about making a record will be in the forefront next because it'll be time, you know. It'll be time. We've definitely gelled as a unit and hopefully when we can all bury the hatchet - and we have - maybe we'll go in there and hope for the best."

U2

The legendary Irish rock group – comprised of Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr – perform a number of shows to mark the 30th anniversary of their 1987 seminal LP The Joshua Tree.
