Pixies at Bowery Ballroom in September (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Pixies

Indie legends the Pixies continued on this year after the departure of original bassist Kim Deal with Kim Shattuck of The Muffs in her place, but now the news comes that the band have lost yet another bassist. Shattuck wrote on Facebook:

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.
On the bright side, a new Muffs album would be their first since 2004.

Pixies, without Kim Shattuck, will go on to tour in 2014. As discussed, that tour hits the NYC-area on 1/19 at Capitol Theatre and 1/21 at NJPAC. with Fidlar. Tickets for the Cap and NJPAC shows are still available.

Meanwhile, Kim Deal is also still touring with The Breeders and will bring that tour to NYC on December 19 and 20 at Webster Hall with Speedy Ortiz, where they'll perform their first two albums, Pod, and Last Splash, in full. Tickets for both nights are still available, and we're also giving away a pair to each night.

Updated Pixies dates are listed below...

Fidlar sucks

Great to see a whole list of gigs coming up. Looks likely there'll be a few in the UK again next year..over and above the festivals. Here's hoping!!

It sounds like she was ousted, as opposed to her leaving on her own. I wonder what led to it.

She tried to write a new song

They've become one of those bands you're embarrassed to admit you were once obsessed with.

he should have just done another Catholics album. One reunion tour is fine, go ahead, cash in, you earned it. but this is just sad now.

kim is koming back into the frank fold.

bet on it.

Breeders tour ends on 12/31. Pixies tour resumes on 1/15. I'd say there's a very good chance Kim Deal is coming back.

Maybe she cut Frank on the buffet line and Frank just couldn't let that stand.

Why don't they just open up a residency at a shitty Vegas hotel at this point?

the good news is several Spinal Tap drummers are auditioning for the new Pixies bass player

2004: please, please God, let the Pixies reunite.

2013: I fucking hate the Pixies! GO AWAY!

Sad how angry music fans are that they just turn on a band simply for touring and playing music.

I can bet this is all about Black's ego. When Kim and Ronny stopped dating both agreed that they wouldn't allow it to hinder The Muffs. It didn't. This proves Shattuck can put aside issues and get on with things. Black is now 0-2. Loses Deal and now Kim.

Seems like Kim was surprised to learn she was ousted.

11:08 - you work for them? I saw them in 2004 or whenever they got back together. That was excellent. It's 9 FUCKING YEARS LATER NOW. They've been on tour for longer than they were together making the classic records. Enough.

right on, 11:12.

Posted by Anonymous | December 2, 2013 11:46 AM

a) if i killed myself i'd be sure to take you with me.
b) we're allllllll one person.

Posted by 11:12 | December 2, 2013 11:59 AM

Rich Homie Quan will be the next bassist. Hopefully.

She's better off in The Muffs.

Posted by steve | December 2, 2013 7:17 PM

I'm better off in the muffs too.

Posted by Mai Wang | December 2, 2013 7:31 PM

Good opportunity for Kim Gordon or Kim Coletta… at that point I think we run out 80/90s female bass players named Kim

Posted by Anonymous | December 2, 2013 10:17 PM

Maybe Kim Thayill, isn't he bald too?

Old dad rock, mega boring.

Posted by Tomomi Ogawa | December 5, 2013 1:02 AM

Jesus Christ. Pixies. They're back man! Probably the most important band of the last 30 years.
