The following was posted on The Pixies’ Facebook page 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.”

Black Francis, Joey Santiago and David Lovering

Sounds like the other members plan on continuing, even though they have not released any new material, save for “Bam Thwok” at the time of their 2004 reunion.
