Pixies On Tour With New Songs and New Bassist Kim Shattuck

Kim Shattuck and Black Francis Of The Pixies


We were stoked to hear recently that The Pixies are getting together with some new songs for a new tour. Even cooler is that with long time bassist Kim Deal stepping down, LA great Kim Shattuck of The Muffs is stepping in in Kim's Deal's place. We love Kim and The Muffs!!! We've seen Shattuck play as recently as a couple months back here in Long Beach at Alex's Bar, and she freaking rules on her own right. It's nice of her to lend a hand and allow all of us to continue to enjoy those freaking classic Pixies songs played live. The band is still writing and debuted a couple new songs on Jimmy Fallon recently as posted here on Rollingstone.com. They also recently played Chicago's Riot Fest with the like of The Replacements, Blondie and Dinosaur Jr. among others. Kim is pictured here with her Black & White Racer X Strap which she is wearing on Jimmy Fallon on tour right now. Yeah!
