Pixies part ways with new bassist Kim Shattuck

For reasons not immediately clear, the Pixies have parted ways with bassist Kim Shattuck, who joined earlier this year following the departure of founding member Kim Deal.

Treated as more of a live player, Shattuck did not appear on the group's recent EPEP1, but was included in press photos, and accompanied the band around the globe on tour.

From the sound of Shattuck's social media posts, the decision to leave the Pixies was not hers. Check out a tweet below:


Shattuck, who formerly played with The Pandoras, fronts Los Angeles punk band The Muffs, and has contributed vocals to songs from NOFX, Bowling For Soup, and more.

Pixies will head out on an extensive North American tour in January. A new bassist has yet to be announced. Below, check out a full list of dates.
