It appears Kim Deal has decided to leave The Pixies for the 2nd time. After a reunion in 2004, rumors began circulating about a new Pixies record. We now know that will not be happening (atleast with the original line-up). Here is the statement the band released:
“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.”
Silver lining: new Breeders full-length? Maybe?
