The Pixies have announced that former A Perfect Circle bassist Paz Lenchantin will be joining them as the touring bassist for their upcoming worldwide tour. Lenchantin, who has also played with ZWAN and The Entrance Band, will begin her duties with the band at Toronto’s Massey Hall on January 15, 2014.
“We are really looking forward to playing with her on these dates,” drummer David Lovering said in the band’s announcement. “Working with different bass players is very new for the band, but we’re having a great time doing it.”
This year was a rough one for the Pixies in the bass department, starting with the departure of Kim Deal. The group replaced her with Kim Shattuck, but Shattuck only stuck around for three months before being released by the band.
In addition the news of Lenchantin joining the group, The Pixies have released an animated music video for “Another Toe in the Ocean” from their latest EP. Check it out:
