The Pixies haven’t performed together live since 2011, and it looks like the band won’t be getting together anytime soon as the band recently announced Kim Deal’s departure from the group.

Although the group has been rumored to be working on a new album and is already set to release a career-spanning photo book sometime this year after a successful Kickstarter campaign, Kim Deal has departed after 25 years with the iconic band. The group reunited in 2004 and have since been playing sporadic live shows, including a tour in support of the 20th anniversary of Doolittle. The band released a statement on Kim Deal’s departure this morning:

“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 been staying busy with another 20th anniversary tour as of late, celebrating the re-release of The Breeders’ Last Splash. Check out The Breeders’ tour dates below.
