Kim Deal Quits The Pixies
"We are sad to say that Kim Deal has decided to leave the Pixies," reads the statement. "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."
Deal, who is currently on tour with her other band, the Breeders, has yet to comment. She joined the Pixies at the band's inception in 1986, releasing four albums together between 1988 and 1991.
The group took an 11-year hiatus in 1993, reportedly due to tensions between deal and frontman Black Francis, and reunited in 2004. The Pixies last tour was a two-year jaunt of their 1989 album, Doolittle, from 2009 to 2011. more on this story
