Pixies have decided to let bassist Kim Shattuck go after less than 6 months with the band. Shattuck had replaced the Pixies’ original bassist, Kim Deal, who left the band this year after being with them on and off for 25 years. Now, Pixies will have to quickly find a new bassist before embarking on their 2014 tour. Kim released her comments on the matter via Twitter and Facebook.
Pixies Fire Their Bassist, Kim Shattuck
“Super disappointed to learn that my time with the Pixies ended today. Amazing experience. Looking forward to focusing my attention back on The Muffs and our upcoming new album. All the best to everyone.” – Kim Shattuck
No comment yet from Pixies, or information about what exactly sparked the sudden departure. Oddly, this news comes within a week of Black Flag firing a member in the middle of a concert.
