Kim Deal

We are sad to say that Kim Deal has decided to leave the Pixies. We are very proud to have worked with her on and off over the last 25 years. Despite her decision to move on, we will always consider her a member of the Pixies, and her place will always be here for her. We wish her all the best.

The above message was issued by the three remaining members of the Pixies regarding the departure of bassist/backing vocalist Kim Deal, who also sometimes sang lead on songs like “Gigantic” and “Silver.”

The band initially broke up in 1993, but had recently been reunited to tour their 1989 album, Doolittle, which they last did in 2011. Since that time, Kim has been busy touring with her other reunited band, The Breeders.
