The bassist and co-founder of the popular alt-rock group The Pixies, Kim Deal, has left the group today (June 14), with her decision to walk out on the influential band being announced in a statement posted on the Pixies' official Facebook page. The statement read; "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 has most recently been busy touring with her group the Breeders, which she formed during the break up of The Pixies in 1993, with the group touring on the 20th anniversary of their 1993 album Last Splash. Throughout the band's 25 years of existence, Kim has been an integral part to the band and it had seemed that the group were beginning to act more and more like a band following their hiatus during the 90's and earlier 00's, with rumblings of a new album surfacing on and off for the last two years or so after the band's drummer, David Lovering, hinted at it during a Rolling Stone interview in 2011.

Deal became involved in the band when she answered an ad in the Boston Phoenix in 1986, posted by frontman Frank Black/Black Francis. The tensions between the pair ultimately led to their downfall and the band split after four albums in 1993, although the band did reunite in 2004 to tour again and have performed sporadically since, including a long-tour to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their seminal 1989 album Doolittle.
