Kim Shattuck has revealed that her time playing with Pixies has come to an end.

The bass player joined the band this summer after Kim Deal left the band. She posted the news of her departure on Twitter and Facebook, saying she was “disappointed” with the decision.

In a recent interview with NME it was revealed that Kim Deal had left the band in October 2012, though the news wasn’t announced until June 2013. Shattuck did not speak to NME during the interview – which was published earlier this month (November 23), suggesting there may have been friction within the group. Black Francis declined to say why she wouldn’t be taking part in the interview, simply saying: “I guess you could ask our manager”.

Meanwhile, Pixies have been announced as the first headline act of next year’s Field Day in London. The festival, which will expand to a two day event when it takes place over one weekend next year, confirmed that the band will headline on Sunday, June 8, 2014. For more information, see Field Day’s website.
