So there has been a lot going on in the PIXIES camp these past couple of weeks. It all started back a week or so ago when bassist Kim Deal announced she was leaving the band. What??? That sux!!! Who's going to play bass? Are they going to even tour anymore? Is it 1991 all over again when they broke up the first time???
As it turns out...no...no it's not. Just days after the announcment of Kim leaving the band, out of no where there is a new PIXIES song "Bagboy". That's awesome...what? There's more??? Oh yes...not only is there a new song, but they are giving it away RIGHT HERE. It must have been recorded with Kim before she left...uh...no it wasn't. She's not on it.
If that wasn't enough, Charles, Dave & Joey also announced they have a new bass player and are going on tour!!! Who could take Kim's place? How about another girl named Kim...this time it's Kim Shattuck from The Muffs. This won't be the first time she has played with them as you can see below where she played with them back in 2009.
As of now they have only announced some European dates, but the word on the street is they will be playing the States as well. They have also said they will be playing NEW songs and some that have rarely if ever been played live.
Thanks PIXIES...you sure know how to make Mase a happy guy!!! Here is the video for the new song "Bagboy", but don't forget to download it from the link above...or here BAGBOY
