Pixies longtime guitarist Joey Santiago has checked into rehab in order to receive treatment for alcohol and drug issues.

As of now, the band still intends to embark on its UK and European tour scheduled for November and December. However, “Santiago’s time in rehab will affect some of the band’s planned promotional activities,” the band said in a statement.

Pixies are set to release their new album Head Carrier on September 30th. Watch the animated video for the album’s latest single, “Tenement Song”, below.
