Pixies Get a New Bassist

Also named Kim.

The Pixies released their first song in nine years, with an album expected soon—but this comes amid some rather confusing changes in the band’s members. Bassist Kim Deal quit last month, so the Pixies replaced her—with another woman named Kim. Kim Shattuck will join the band on their new European tour. Apparently, there is an abundance of female bassists named Kim available for world tours.
