Paz Lenchatin Is The New Bassist For The Pixies
Posted by Joseph Lee on 12.09.2013
NME reports that Paz Lenchatin has been named as the new bassist for The Pixies, replacing Kim Shattuck for live dates in America and Europe next year. Shattuck revealed last week that she was leaving the band after replacing original bassist Kim Deal, who left after the band's EP1 earlier this year. Lenchatin previously performed with Billy Corgan's Zwan, A Perfect Circle and The Entrance Band.
She will play with the band for a 33-date US tour and several European festivals including Primavera in Spain and Lollapalooza in South America.
Drummer Dave Lovering said: "We are really looking forward to playing with her on these dates. Working with different bass players is very new for the band, but we're having a great time doing it."
Lenchatin will also be with the band for Field Day in London on June 8, 2014. The festival was recently expanded to two days over a weekend. You can find more information on that show here.
