Pixies have confirmed that bassist Paz Lenchatin, will replace Kim Shattuck for a series of live dates in America and Europe next year.

Last week Shattuck revealed that her time playing with the band had come to an end. She, herself, was a replacement for original Pixies bassist Kim Deal who departed the band prior to the release of the group's 'EP1' earlier this year. Lenchatin has previously played with Billy Corgan's Zwan as well as A Perfect Circle and The Entrance Band.

Confirming the arrival of Lenchatin via press release, Pixies confirm she will play with the band on a 33-date US tour as well as European festival dates, including Primavera in Spain and Lollapalooza in South America. "We are really looking forward to playing with her on these dates," said drummer Dave Lovering. "Working with different bass players is very new for the band, but we're having a great time doing it."

Lenchatin will also perform with Pixies when the band headline Field Day in London next year. The festival, which will expand to a two day event when it takes place over one weekend next year, confirmed that the US alt-rock band will headline on Sunday, June 8, 2014. For more information, see Field Day's website.
