Pixies hire a new bassist not named Kim, release a new music video

Following the rapid-fire departures of bassists Kim Deal and Kim Shattuck, the Pixies have recruited another female bassist, though one who isn't named "Kim." Paz Lenchatin will join the group for its upcoming tour dates, which include a string of international festivals next spring and summer. Lenchatin has previously played with A Perfect Circle, The Entrance Band, and Zwan, so she has experience dealing with larger-than-life, bald frontmen.

Just in case picking a fresh bassist isn’t news enough, the Pixies have also released a new video for one of its new tracks. The animated clip for EP-1 song “Another Toe In The Ocean” is below, as directed by Liviu Boar.
