The Pixies are without a bassist for the second time this year. 

Newest member Kim Shattuck announced on Facebook Friday that her time with the band has come to an end, just a few months after it began. 

Shattuck joined the Pixies back in July after founding bassist Kim Deal quit in the middle of recording sessions for the group's latest release, "EP-1."  Shattuck says she's "super disappointed" about her quick exit, but still calls her stint as a Pixie an "amazing experience." 

She's now looking forward to turning her attention back to her other band, the Muffs, and their upcoming album. 

The Pixies, meanwhile, are scheduled to kick off a North American tour in January.  They have yet to announce who will be handling bass duties on the trek.
