The Pixies: No Longer Kim-less But Still Without a Deal

The Pixies announced via their website this morning that Kim will in fact be playing bass and providing background vocals on their upcoming tour- just not the one we have grown accustomed to hearing and seeing. Kim Shattuck, lead guitarist and vocalist from The Muffs, will be stepping into the role recently vacated by Kim Deal, at least on the road. It had been speculated that Jeremy Dubs would be filling that spot after appearing on the new Pixies single “Bagboy,” which has been receiving mixed reviews since its release last Friday. The band has scheduled a European tour this fall and has already sold out four of the nineteen shows.  According to their website, this is the first leg of an “extensive, worldwide tour.” No word yet on when they will be hitting the States.

“Bagboy” is still available to download for free via the band’s website.  The video is also available to watch on Youtube.
