It's been a dramatic year for The Pixies, who just announced the hiring of the band's third bassist since June. Following the departures of Kim Deal and Kim Shattuck, Paz Lenchantin joins The Pixies as the band's newest member.

After 25 years of work with The Pixies, Deal quit the band in June. Her spot was filled by The Muffs performer Shattuck, who was let go earlier this month without explanation.

Lenchantin, who has performed and recorded with the likes of A Perfect Circle, Entrance, and Queens Of The Stone Age, will join Black Francis, David Lovering, and Joey Santiago for The Pixies' recently announced 2014 tour dates.

"We are really looking forward to playing with her on these dates," Lovering said in a statement on the band's website. "Working with different bass players is very new for the band, but we’re having a great time doing it."

The Pixies supplemented the announcement with the release of the music video to the band's latest single, "Another Toe In The Ocean." Take a look at the visuals below.
