Kim Deal quit her former band, Pixies, in June of this year. She joined the group at their inception in 1986. Despite splitting in 1993, they reformed in 2004 and toured their 1989 album ‘Doolittle’ between 2009 and 2011. The band’s remaining members Black Francis, Joey Santiago and David Lovering released a statement comment discussing Deal’s departure, saying: “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.”
Deal is currently touring the 20th anniversary re-release of her other band The Breeders’ landmark album ‘Last Splash’. The Breeders recently released a special box set, ‘LSXX’, to celebrate the album’s milestone. The limited-edition collection features BBC radio sessions, demos, live recordings and a booklet of photos documenting the recording of the album and the two years spent touring it.
