Pixies Axe Kim Shattuck

It’s been less than three months since Kim Shattuck made her debut as departing bassist Kim Deal’s replacement, but it seems that this new Pixies lineup has come to an end. In posts to Twitter and Facebook tonight, the Muffs leader revealed that she just learned the news and isn’t happy about it:

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.

Shattuck had been performing with the Pixies on dates in the U.S. and Europe. Another North American tour begins 1/15/14 in Toronto. Check out all the dates here and watch the band’s recent concert for BBC Radio 6 Music below.
