FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

BASSIST PAZ LENCHANTIN DEPARTS THE PIXIES

Former Band of Skulls Bassist Emma Richardson to Join Pixies' Line-up

Pixies Set to Launch Their Sold-Out UK/European Tour

LOS ANGELES, CA (Monday, March 4, 2024) — Bassist Paz Lenchantin, who joined the Pixies in 2014, has exited the band to concentrate on her own projects.  Said the band in a statement, “We’re grateful for Paz’s many contributions, and wish her all the very best going forward.” 

 

When Pixies hit the road on March 8 to kick off their sold-out UK/European “Bossanova X Trompe Le Monde" headline tour, the band welcomed bassist Emma Richardson.  Richardson, previously bassist for the British group Band of Skulls, made her worldwide debut with Pixies on that first night.  On May 31, she will make her North American debut as a Pixies’ bassist when the band launches its North American co-headline tour with Modest Mouse and Cat Power.  Pixies plans to return to Europe and the UK this summer before heading out to Auckland and Australia with Pearl Jam at the end of this year.
