In a statement posted to her Facebook account Friday night, bassist Kim Shattuck revealed that she will no longer be performing with the Pixies.
This news comes relatively recently after Shattuck replaced founding bass player Kim Deal, following her departure in June. Shattuck made her live debut with the Pixies in July and appears on EP-1, the first Pixies studio release in 22 years.
No word yet from the Pixies' camp or frontman Black Francis, but the band is slated to begin their North American tour as planned in January. Stay tuned to Zumic as more details emerge and let us know which Kim you think will play bass in the band next.
