The Pixies announced a fresh set of shows in the spring and summer today, along with the news that they've found a replacement bassist for Kim Shattuck. The new Pixies bassist is Paz Lenchantin, who's played with A Perfect Circle, ZWAN and The Entrance Band.
“We are really looking forward to playing with her on these dates,” said David Lovering. “Working with different bass players is very new for the band, but we’re having a great time doing it.”
The band was also recently added to the Primavera Sound music festival in Barcelona, Spain.
The departure of Kim Shattuck was announced by Kim last week, who replaced founding bassist Kim Deal earlier this year. And just like when Shattuck was added to the band, they've released a new video from EP-1, with the song “Another Toe In the Ocean.” Check it out below.
