Pixies co-vocalist, it’s been announced that Kim Deal has left the band after 25 years.

The founding member and bassist has been recently focusing her attention on her Breeders reunion, touring to mark the 20 year anniversary of their debut Last Splash.

While another Pixies album had been rumoured, the band have now released the following statement:

“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.”

It’s not yet known whether or not the band will continue with a new fourth member.
