Paz LenchantinThe 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.”

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:

  1. Bit a step up for the Pixies, Paz is as solid as they come. Cant help but to wonder how long it will last though.

  2. Think it’s funny that both behind Corgan whether solo or with the Pumpkins and apparently also with the Pixies it’s an absolute requirement to be female to be their bassist. How weird. Nothing against women bassists, I just think it’s kind of a strange thing.
