Pixies have finally decided that a bassist named Kim wasn't a big deal (sorry). The band have just announced that the bassist joining them for their upcoming 2014 shows will be Paz Lenchantin (for those of you who don't know, "Paz" means "Peace" in Spanish, so maybe they're trying to send themselves a message?).

Having played with Zwan, A Perfect Circle, and Entrance Band, Lenchantin will replace Kim Shattuck following her unexpected dismissal from the band .

The band has also announced a couple of European dates for Summer 2014 - including a support slot for Arcade Fire in Dublin on June 29th, as well as both Primavera Sound Festivals (Barcelona and Oporto) and London's Field Day.
