Pixies Part Ways With New Bassist
The Pixies have parted ways with recently added bassist Kim Shattuck.
"Super disappointed to learn that my time with the Pixies ended today," Shattuck wrote Friday on Facebook (via Pitchfork). "Amazing experience. Looking forward to focusing my attention back on the Muffs and our upcoming new album. All the best to everyone."
In July, the veteran punk band announced the addition of Shattuck (The Muffs, The Pandoras) to the lineup as a bassist and backing vocalist prior to beginning a world tour.
A month prior, The Pixies had parted ways with founding bassist Kim Deal, who had made the decision to exit the band.
In January, The Pixies tour makes its way to North America for more than two dozen dates scheduled in Canada and the United States over two months.
