Less than six months after Kim Shattuck was brought on board to be the new bassist for The Pixies, she was fired by the band.
Shattuck took to Twitter and Facebook to announce her departure from The Pixies, voicing her disappointment that her time with the band has ended. While she confirmed that she will no longer be performing with the group, she gave no explanation as to why she has been let go.
Disappointed to learn that my time w/Pixies ended today. Amazing experience.Focusing attn on Muffs & new album. All the best to everyone.

The Pixies, who released a new E.P. in September, have yet to comment on dropping Shattuck.
